Ras Al Khaimah is nestled between the Hajjar Mountains on the East and the Arabian Gulf on the West and shares mountainous borders with the Sultanate of Oman. With the completion of the new Emirates Highway, RAK is only about one hour from the emirate of Dubai. The Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah combines a fascinating and a relaxing tourist hub with its calm blue seas with clean white beaches, dramatic desert dunes and the majestic Hajjar Mountains.
It has numerous fascinating tourist landmarks, beautiful wildlife conservations and sanctuaries. Golf has become one of the leading tourist attractions within the emirate. From the most archeological sites which considered tourist areas is “Al Hesn” the fort, the Museum of Ras Al Khaimah and “Dhaia” Castle and Shaml Area with what it includes of forts, the Falia zone, the control towers and the tourist resort of Ain Khatt.
The mountains of Ras Al Khaimah are the emirate’s most stunning scenic features. They rise to a height of 2000 metres above the sea level and are divided by plenty of wadis (valleys) criss-crossing the Hajjar mountain ranges. Starting from Wadi Al Beeh, these steep sided valleys go towards Masafi in the east and then to a row of wadis including Ghayl and Shawka.
The vast mangroves that flourish in and around Ras Al Khaimah city are another outstanding feature of the emirate. Rich in marine life and teeming with birds, these mangroves run northwards along the coast in sheltered inlets.
To the west of Digdaga, impressive red sand dunes run towards the north with camel herds, farms, oases and beautiful valleys dotting these desert passes.
Shamal, an area nestled in the lee of the mountains in the north of Ras Al Khaimah, has several tombs dating back to ancient times.
