Ras Al Khaimah, one of seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, features miles of beautiful beaches, historic forts, scenic mountains, terracotta deserts and some of the most diverse and enchanting landscapes in the region – all just 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport.
Ras Al Khaimah is full of surprises, enough to satisfy those who seek thrills, who want serenity, who want to connect with nature or even reconnect with their families. Fly along the world’s longest zip line or just sit back and watch nature at its most majestic. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it in Ras Al Khaimah.
Ras Al Khaimah is home to Ru’us Al Jibal, a spectacular mountain range. With the highest peak, Jebel Jais at 1,934m there’s plenty of stunning hiking and mountain bike trails.
If you don’t have a head for heights, discover the ocean off Ras Al Khaimah’s coast where you can spot whales and dolphins, a multitude of fish, and turtles. There’s plenty of dive schools in the area so you can discover this underwater world for yourself, and the cooler months are an ideal time to see the rare green turtles.
If you’d like to see the dunes of the desert, Ras Al Khaimah’s terracotta sands are where you’ll get an insight into the life of the Bedouins at various camps, or where you can try activities including adrenaline-inducing four-wheel drive safaris, or horse and camel treks into the sunset.
Ras Al Khaimah’s hotels and resorts offer an array of signature treatments to stimulate your senses. With tranquil surroundings in desert retreats and incredible beachfront properties, expert therapists are on hand with restorative treatments and rejuvenating massages, to restore the balance of your mind and body.
The emirate is also famous for three natural hot springs in the village of Khatt. Relaxation is guaranteed at this haven of peace and tranquillity. A wide range of spa services are on offer, plus you can relax in the warm hydro pools with massage jets, be pampered in one of the 14 treatment rooms, and try the ice grotto, steam and sauna rooms, snail showers and hot stone beds.
