Beyond its year-long sunshine and 64 kilometres of beautiful golden beaches, Ras Al Khaimah has exhilarating experiences and attractions for every holiday seeker.
You can spend a day exploring the UAE’s highest peak, Jebel Jais, or immerse yourself into the ultimate Bedouin desert adventure.
If ancient treasures excite you, Ras Al Khaimah offers plenty of opportunities to relive 7000 years of history. You can climb up to Dhayah Fort, the country’s only hilltop fort, or enjoy a glimpse into the era of pearl diving at a traditional pearl farm.
The Suwaidi Pearls Farm was established in 2005 by prominent Emirati Abdulla Al Suwaidi, and is the first farm of its kind in the Gulf region. The farm cultivates the Pinctada Radiata, otherwise known as the Gulf pearl oyster, using locally sourced mollusks that live in the natural creek in Al Rams.
Abdulla Al Suwaidi’s Family, Al Suwaidi’s is intrinsically linked to the history of pearling era in the Gulf, dating back to 12th and 13th centuries, and belonging to the Julfar dynasty, Ras Al Khaimah, UAE. The family background traces back to life in the Gulf region that has been entwined with the jewel of the ocean for over 7000 years. His ancestors carried on with pearling for generations leading finally to the 20th century with his grandfather Mohammed Bin Abdulla Al-Suwaidi as being one of the last remaining pearl divers of the Al Suwaidi legacy.
Jebel Jais is definitely the UAE’s tallest mountain and is every bit as exciting as a tall mountain should be. Rugged, at times wind -swept, valleys with sweeping views…and absolute isolation.
