Three perfect places for your family to live in the UAE

The UAE has become a prime destination for tourism and business, attracting people from all over the world, and especially ideal for families. A major reason for this lies in the provision of all services, living facilities, entertainment venues and attractions. The head of any household will be always looking for the best accommodation options in the UAE to cater to his family, and will often choose a family-friendly place that offers a quiet atmosphere along with safety and security for his family members.

Keeping all of this in mind, we have put together some of the best places for your family to live in the UAE.

The centre of Sharjah

Sharjah is definitely one of the most popular family-friendly areas in the UAE. Its community is conservative, and its laws prohibit alcohol and nightclubs.

In the centre of Sharjah, there are several distinct residential projects where you can buy a property or rent it. You can choose from multiple purchase and mortgage plans that the UAE equally allows for expatriates and citizens. Hotels and resorts also offer a great location near the Corniche, just in case your visit was for tourism, not business. You can walk to the central market, which is only 12 minutes away, and the area is also located less than 22 km from Sharjah International Airport.

Sharjah’s museums, aquarium, Al Majaz Plaza, Al Jazira Water Park and the Exhibition Center are all a 5-minute drive from the city centre. As such, Sharjah is a consistently popular area for families.

Family housing in Jumeirah

Jumeirah is the most elegant residential area in Dubai, with great views of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest man-made building in the world. It stretches along the coastline of Dubai, embracing the famous Burj Al Arab, Wild Wadi waterpark and many other tourist attractions. The area boasts a rich list of relaxation and entertainment destinations including four beach resorts, various shopping facilities, restaurant compounds and countless recreational activities. As a result, there’s no wonder Jumeirah is such a popular destination for families.

Abu Dhabi Downtown

Abu Dhabi is home to some of the top landmarks such as Ferrari World and Yas Island. The best serviced apartments are available in the business district and the city’s downtown area, which are located within minutes of walking distance from Abu Dhabi Mall and the Corniche.

You can also enjoy the luxury life of the hotels near the canal overlooking the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the city’s premier tourist and Islamic landmark. Plus, the vibrant island is full of leisure facilities and restaurants along the beach, which means you can enjoy relaxing in the sea or playing a range of water sports, including surfing and kayaking.
