History lovers would enjoy visiting the Dhayah fort, built in the 16th century on a mountain overlooking the Gulf, to fight the British troops. The National Museum of Ras Al Khaimah, built in mid of the 18th century during the emirate's invasion by Persians, was originally the house of the Royal Family until 1964. It includes a number of ancient ornaments, discovered in the emirate and is considered the wealthiest monumental museum in the UAE.

Housing the region's most diverse and interactive display of Falcons, Hawks, Kestrels, Owls and Eagles, be a part of the action at the Falconry Deck or just sit back and be amazed.

Jazirat Al-Hamra

(Ras Al Khaimah)

This abandoned fishing village, just outside Ras Al-Khamah city, has been left to slowly decay with its traditional coral-block architecture now a reminder of the simple local life before the oil boom. The Emirati inhabitants here would have made their living out from pearl diving and fishing, but the villagers all left in the 1960s and the dry desert climate has helped preserve the buildings. It gives the whole place a lost-in-time atmosphere.

Khatt Springs

Khatt Springs is an area of mineral-rich hot pools, where the water is noted for its relaxing and therapeutic properties. The resort lies amid a palm-tree strewn oasis, backed by mountains. The healthy waters are a top get-away-from-it-all draw for locals as well as tourists.
