Al Barsha (Arabic: البرشاء‎‎) is a collection of sub-communities in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Al Barsha is one of the newer residential developments, and is located in west Dubai, south of Al Sufouh. Al Barsha is bounded by E 11 (Sheikh Zayed Road) and E 311 (Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road). Its various subcommunities include:

  • Al Barsha First
  • Al Barsha Second
  • Al Barsha Third
  • Al Barsha South One
  • Al Barsha South Two
  • Al Barsha South Three

A newly developed community, Al Barsha is still thinly populated when compared to other communities in the city. Al Barsha is close to Dubai Internet City, Dubai Marina and the Palm Jumeirah. Landmarks within Al Barsha include Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Autodrome.

Al Barsha is bounded to the north by Al Sufouh, to the west by Emirates Hills, the east by Al Quoz and to the south by Dubai Sports City and other property developments.
