A largely Emirati area tucked immediately behind a more expatriate Mirdif, Al Khawaneej is largely villa based and (currently) of the periphery of Dubai. The area is also in parts very rural, and home to private farms, some of which open their doors to visitors.
The area is also home to a Last Exit (pictured), one of Meeras' celebrated food truck parks - which celebrates it being a bit of an end of the line before the desert begins, but also its rural roots.
Given the local and rural nature of the area it is unsurprisingly not heavily populated with schools, although residents can easily pop into Mirdif. There is, however, a new school set to open in the heart of Al Khawaneej in September 2018, Ayjal School which will apparently follow a UK based curriculum.
