central location
One of the most vibrant neighbourhoods in the capital, Khalidiya is strategically located in the heart of Abu Dhabi near the Corniche. Residents can choose from either apartments in high-rise buildings or spacious villas in Khalidiya Village. Most houses offer waterfront views. Here’s why the neighbourhood is a family favourite: it houses the Khalidiya Park, Khalidiyah Mall and is also a stone’s throw away from Abu Dhabi Corniche beach. Parents can send their children to either American Community School of Abu Dhabi or Al Bateen Academy. There are ample recreation spaces as well and a boardwalk on the Corniche for the fitness buffs.

Don’t miss: The tender lamb chops and grills in Lebanese Flower, an institution in Abu Dhabi, and a few rounds of billiards at local pool hall Harrods
