Al Reem Island

Two bridges connect the island of Al Reem to the mainland: one of them is laid from the city of Abu Dhabi, the other - from the island of Al Maryah Island.

Al Reem Island is home to several prestigious schools and kindergartens, such as Mosaic Nursery, Hummingbird Nursery, Playhouse Nursery and Repton School Abu Dhabi.

The medical infrastructure here is also quite well developed. Al Reem Island has a Burjeel Hospital, and there are a number of pharmacies in the area that residents and visitors can easily find.

There are several religious sites on the island, including the Al Aziz Mosque, which accommodates more than 2,500 worshippers. The nearest church and Buddhist temple are located in the surrounding area, just a 20-minute drive from Al Reem Island.
