With over 7,000 years of fascinating history and culture, Ras Al Khaimah is the perfect getaway from everyday life. Offering magnificent landscapes, breathtaking coastlines and rich, terracotta desert planes, the emirate has firmly established itself as the UAE‚s most authentic destination in the Middle East.
With year-long sunshine and 64 kilometres of white sandy beaches, just 45 minutes from the busy metropolis of Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah offers an entirely unique experience from its neighbouring emirates.
Ras al-Khaimah is one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates. Its name could be taken to mean “headland of the small huts”, which can be attributed to the indigenous buildings that existed along the coast.
