Haabersti is one of the 8 administrative districts (Estonian: linnaosa) of Tallinn, the capital of Estonia.
Haabersti is divided into 12 subdistricts (Estonian: asum): Astangu, Haabersti, Kakumäe, Mustjõe, Mäeküla, Õismäe, Pikaliiva, Rocca al Mare, Tiskre, Veskimetsa, Vismeistri and Väike-Õismäe.
The most populous part of the district is Väike-Õismäe, a residential area consisting of the big panel houses, which were mostly built in the 1970s. Lake Harku and an extensive beach area at Kakumäe and the Kopli Bay lie in the boundaries of the district. Since most of the territory has not been previously used for building, new areas with small residential buildings have developed in the last two decades.
Haabersti is the home for Estonian Open Air Museum, Saku Suurhall, Tallinn Zoo, and Rocca al Mare Shopping Centre.
Haabersti has a population of 43,916 (As of 1 November 2014).
