A hidden gem, Ras Al Khaimah is located along the Gulf Coast offering warm waters and sandy beaches to those coming to stay. The region is also home to the largest mountain in the United Arab Emirates; Jebel Al Jais. This year-round vacation destination has plenty of history to explore, and has been settled for over 7000 years.
After you've soaked up the coastal sunshine, take in a camel race at Al Sawan Camel Track, treat yourself to a dip at the Khatts Springs hot springs, or cool down at the Iceland Water Park.
Sports fans will want to play a round at the Tower Links Golf course, while history buffs will enjoy checking out the Ras Al Khaimah Museum.
When you fly to Ras Al Khaimah International Airport (RAS) you can make your way into the city using taxis or buses. Car rental is also available on site from a variety of agencies. Daily services to Peshawar (PEW) Lahore (LHE) and Cairo (CAI) are readily available.
Hints and tips
When it's time to eat, everything is delicious in the UAE, so narrow things down to the Pura Vida Restaurant, or for the best seafood availible, the Al Moohit Restaurant.
