Ras Al Khaimah, Your Arabian Adventure Awaits
Pristine Coastlines, A terracotta-coloured desert and the dramatic, awe-inspiring vistas of the Hajar mountains - when you visit Ras Al Khaimah you can soak up the sunshine against spectacular backdrops almost all year round. So wether you’re looking for a holiday with thrills, somewhere to chill, a place to connect with nature, or a break that’s great for the whole family, Ras Al Khaimah is full of surprises to be discovered.
Ras Al Khaimah’s myriad landscapes offer up a host of activities for all interests and ages. There’s relaxation and adventure, romantic beach resorts, water sports and wildlife tours, and most of it happens near to the emirate’s 64km of staggeringly beautiful, completely unspoiled beaches.
Enjoy kayaking through mangrove forests, tackle huge dunes on a desert safari, or explore the ancient craft of pearling at the UAE’s only pearl farm. But that’s not all: away from the gorgeous coast and rolling dunes, you’ll find a place that’s passionate about its history and culture, and full of adrenaline-packed adventures.
Ras Al Khaimah is also home to the UAE’s highest mountain Jebel Jais, which rises just shy of 2,000m. Here, you can find the World’s Longest Zipline - Jebel Jais Flight, a bucket list experience that’ll see you soar over the UAE’s highest peak and land on a breathtaking transparent platform suspended 15 stories in the air.
The mountain is also home to the region’s first ever via ferrata (Italian for iron path) which features hiking and zipline challenges. You can also visit the Jebel Jais Viewing Deck Park for a more laid-back experience with seven viewing decks to help you take in stunning 360-degree views of the Hajar Mountains around you.
After all that adventure, you’ll need somewhere to rest, and in Ras Al Khaimah, guests have a lot of choice - from ultra - luxurious beach resorts to family-friendly hotels, city-centre properties and desert camps for the more intrepid.
Food is a huge focus throughout the emirate - and from the most laidback of food stalls, everywhere has its own take. Whether you want to sample authentic flavours of the Middle East or try a different international cuisine each night, Ras Al Khaimah is the place to do it- and with plenty of all inclusive options to choose from when you book with Kenwood Travel, you won’t need to worry about anything but kicking back on the beach all day, and then picking which restaurant you fancy eating at each night.
Getting there couldn’t be easier, either- Ras Al Khaimah is a mere 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport.
