About the Emirate

Ras Al Khaimah is the smallest of the 7 emirates, located in the northeast of the UAE, and covering an area of almost 2,500 sq. km. The region is located on the coast of the Arabian Gulf and borders Oman. The emirate is divided into 2 almost equal parts, one of which is located along the coast, and the other in sparsely populated mountainous areas. The capital is the eponymous city of Ras Al Khaimah, where most of the population lives.

The name of the region literally translates as "cape of small huts," because there were previously many fishing villages here. Initially, the emirate was part of Sharjah and separated only in 1909. Ras Al Khaimah was the last to join the rest of the country: Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed Al Qasimi signed the corresponding agreement in 1972. Historically, the region was engaged in fishing, livestock breeding, and agriculture due to the milder climate, as well as in the extraction and export of pearls.

The capital is divided into two parts by a bay: Old Ras Al Khaimah, where the main attractions of the emirate are located, and Nakheel, where the Ras Al Khaimah International Airport is located.

The region is characterized by a unique landscape where plains mix with the picturesque Hajjar Mountains (Jibal Al Hajjar). It also attracts visitors with its lush greenery, a 64-kilometer coastline, white sandy beaches, bays, lagoons, mangrove thickets, and its terracotta dunes, which makes tourism highly developed in Ras Al Khaimah.

Economic Attractiveness

There are also several free economic zones in the region where 100% foreign participation is possible. Among them is the Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ) with 15,000 companies across more than 50 industries, which is increasing the demand for real estate among local residents and professionals from different countries around the world.

Ras Al Khaimah is a popular tourist destination because of its many luxury hotels, sandy beaches, historical landmarks, and a milder climate compared to the other emirates. All of this attracts many travelers and allows investors to build a profitable tourism business. In addition, all the necessary infrastructure has been created in Ras Al Khaimah for comfortable family living.

Attractions

Ras Al Khaimah boasts numerous natural and historical attractions, the most popular of which are:

  • Jabal Al Hajjar - The Hajjar Mountains sits to the east of Ras Al Khaimah, bordering Oman. Jebel Jais is the highest point in the UAE, at 1,911m. This site is popular among both climbers and tourists, as it offers stunning views from several vantage points.
  • Al Jazirah Al Hamra (literally "the red island") - An abandoned village since the 20th century. Today it is a natural tourist complex, protected by the government, that houses homes, mosques, watchtowers, and two ancient forts.
  • Flamingo Beach - A sandy beach ideal for families with children as the water is shallow and there are no strong currents. Nearby are mangroves where a population of pink flamingos reside.
  • Dhayah Fort - A fort that served as protection during the defense against the British in the 19th century. Today, it has been turned into a large tourist centre with a village that reconstructs the lifestyle of the people during that period, and the ancient burial sites of the Umm Al Nar civilization.

Among the popular shopping areas and leisure spots are Al Hamra Mall and Manar Mall, Khatts Springs thermal springs, and Iceland Water Park, which is the largest in the UAE, as well as the Al Hamra Marina & Yacht Club.
