Nad Al Sheba (Arabic: ند الشبا‎) is a locality in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Situated south of the Dubai Creek, Nad Al Sheba is best known for its racecourse, the Nad Al Sheba Racecourse, which hosted the Dubai World Cup annually until 2009

Nad Al Sheba comprises four sub-communities:

  • Nad Al Sheba 1
  • Nad Al Sheba 2
  • Nad Al Sheba 3
  • Nad Al Sheba 4

The racecourse is located in Nad Al Sheba 1, while the stables that bred racehorses such as Dubai Millennium and Essence of Dubai are located in Nad Al Sheba 2. The Nad Al Sheba palace of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is located in Nad Al Sheba 1.
