Al Abar is located just off Cultural/Quran Roundabout and is known primarily for its schools and museums.

Al Abar is home to the Rosary School, Lycee Francais Georges Pompidou French School, German School of Sharjah, Al Mawahib British Private School, and other smaller schools and nurseries. 

The proliferation of schools in the area, can mean traffic at pick-up and drop-off times can be heavy, however, many residents say its a small price to pay for living in this quiet treelined villa district. 

The area boasts the Science and Archaeology museums on the doorstep, the Sharjah Library (the most extensively stocked public library in the country), aAl Abarpark, plus a large Sharjah Cooperative Shop and the SEWA HQ. 

Villas in this district are some of the most expensive in Sharjah (AED 80,000 to AED 140,000 plus), yet many seem more than willing to pay the price for Al Abar's spacious villas and large garden plots, easy acces to amenities and quiet family feel.
