Al Barsha Area

About Al Barsha

Al Barsha is a safe and quiet area filled with large, standalone villas and some new apartment blocks popular among Media City and Dubai Internet City employees. It is one of the relatively new communities located in the west part of the city between Sheikh Zayed Road and Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road. The area has district zones, each with its own accommodation options. It is the general name for Al Barsha I, Al Barsha II, Al Barsha III and the very new Al Barsha South compounds.
