Bedouin Oasis Desert Camp
The first Bedouin-style desert camp in Ras Al Khaimah provides visitors with the perfect opportunity to explore authentic desert living. Using only traditional and natural materials the Bedouin Oasis Desert Camp is a step back in the days when tent roofs were originally made from goat hair and there was only fire or an antique gas light to provide heating and lighting.

National Museum of Ras Al Khaimah
Built in the middle of the 18th century during the emirate’s invasion by Persians, the National Museum of Ras Al Khaimah was originally the house of the Royal Family until 1964. In 1987, the late Sheikh Saqr Bin Mohamed Al Qassim opened the museum, which includes a number of local ancient monuments and an intriguing collection of archaeological and ethnological artifacts.
Built as a strategic military castle in the 16th century, Dayah Fort witnessed a battle between the local people and the British troops in which its towers were set on fire. These were later destroyed in 1819 and the Fort was restored in the 1990’s.
Jazirat Al Hamra
Jazirat Al Hamra is an abandoned coastal village in Ras Al Khaimah, which was occupied from the 16th century and abandoned nearly 40 years ago. The villagers who lived here were mainly fishermen and pearl traders.
The Land of Pearls - Pearl Excursion and Pearl Museum
The first of its kind in the UAE, the Pearl Farm produces more than 100,000 pearls each year.

The Pearl Museum presents visitors a glimpse into the history of the pearl industry in the Arabian Peninsula. On display across the museum is a selection of ancient equipment and old diving costumes with a collection of special natural pearls in different shapes and colours.
