Fun and Beauty

Once a vacation destination primarily for people in the Persian Gulf, RAK is quickly becoming a hot spot for international tourism, under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr al Qasimi. It has the most varied and beautiful natural landscapes in the UAE, with the spectacular Hajar Mountain range, beautiful coastline, desert terrain and an agricultural green belt.

RAK offers opportunities for fun if you visit for a day, a week or a month. You might end up wanting to stay forever. With a number of world-class resorts as your home base, you can:

  • Soar above the sea, mountains and desert in a light aircraft rented from Jazirah Aviation Club, chaired by His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr al Qasimi.
  • Ride a buggy in the desert or mountains.
  • Swim and sail in the Gulf’s turquoise waters.
  • Relax on the beach and get a massage in a beach cabana or sauna.

This quote from His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi says it all:
“Ras Al Khaimah has historically been a destination for residents of the UAE’s other emirates for summer vacations. Today, because of the beauty of Ras Al Khaimah and the death of distance, we see an opportunity for us to bring Ras Al Khaimah to Europe, to different parts of Asia and to America so that the people in those countries can experience the beauty of Ras Al Khaimah and experience the hospitality of the people of Ras Al Khaimah.”
