Al Gurm is located on the south-west side of Abu Dhabi's main island. Primarily, the entire community can be accessed via Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street. The master plan of Al Gurm also includes construction of the perpendicular internal road connecting Phase 1 with Phase 2. While offering secluded living, the community is located within a maximum of 20 minutes' from Abu Dhabi and the airport. Dubai is also accessible in less than 1.5 hours.
Within walking distance from the community, residents have easy access to Al Gurm CrossFit, Mohammed Ahmed Al-Bawardi Mosque, Rotana Café Abu Dhabi and Al Gurm Plaza (shopping mall). Since the area is designed as pedestrian-friendly, there is no public transport infrastructure developed yet. Therefore, it is recommended to move around in a private vehicle or a taxi.
The amenities nearby include Zayed National Hospital, Al Mushrif Co-operative Society Mall and a public children's park. Residents of Al Gurm can also visit Al Bateen Beach which is perfect for fishing and family picnics. For lovers of water activities, it is possible to rent kayaks and waterskis.
