Al Dhafra Beach, which overlooks the Arabian Gulf, is a multi-use residential project with a total area of 300ha that includes a luxury five-star beach resort, in addition to villas, residential buildings, health, education, and entertainment facilities, and a canal.

The project also includes open spaces for parks and other green features, in addition to a shopping centre.
