It is located in the northernmost portion of United Arab Emirates and is famous for its Arabianesque Gulf Beaches. Its name means ‘headland belonging to the small huts’ might be a nod towards the various indigenous buildings which existed right along the city’s coast. The city has a very vibrant history, which dates back to the bronze age. This makes it one amongst the few places which have been continuously lived in for over 7,000 years. A memento from the past is in the form of Al Wahabiyyah which is one of the oldest forms of art in Ras Al Khaimah and it is only performed during special occasions in the Emirates. If you are intrigued and want to visit the place then there are Ras Al Khaimah Hotels which will cater to all your demands and look after all your needs so that your stay is perfect.
Surely, you would like to know the various places you can visit, the activities you can do and more so let us check them out:
Visit Dhayah Fort
Definitely one of the most historically important sites in the UAE, which dates back to the times of the 16th century. It was built from clay bricks for a variety of military purposes which extended beyond just protecting from invaders and its two military towers help in providing a higher ground for keeping a watch.
Visit Jazirat Al Hamra
This is an abandoned, scenic fishing village which is also known as the ghost town of Ras Al Khaimah. This village has walls built from coral and also offers an insight into what community life was like for the people residing in the UAE before oil was discovered. Don’t forget to bring your camera.
Explore the Hajar Mountains
We would recommend for an organized tour to see and enjoy the Hajar Mountains fully. On the tour, you will be able to see various scenic spots from the viewing decks. This is one of the most comfortable ways to visit the mountains, especially if you are with the family.
Enjoy picnicking at Saqr Park
This family-friendly park is perfect for people looking to spend some time with family and friends. You will love the lush green grassy lawn which is dotted with benches. You can take walks to explore its lawns, visit a waterfall or sit beside a serene lake. This all creates a really scenic location where you can enjoy picnics with your kids while taking in the beautiful weather.
Experience the quintessential desert life over at Bedouin Oasis Camp
Head over to the Bedouin Oasis Camp, which is basically a desert safari that includes both food and entertainment. Here you will be able to experience an overnight trip where you will get a taste of UAE’s nomadic past life but with all the staple modern comforts.
Ras Al Khaimah is a city with a beautiful past and a thriving present. Both sides of history come together to create a beautiful amalgamation of the future shaped by the past. Be here and experience being part of that future.
