Northern Emirates

Travelling North beyond Sharjah are the Northern Emirates of Ajman, Umm Al Quwain and Ras Al Khaimah. Less developed than the rest of the UAE, all have attractions and charms to make a visit worthwhile including fun water-theme parks, superb golf courses, long sandy beaches, hot springs, cool mountains and a growing number of Hotels and waterside developments.

Ajman ‘Specializes in beautiful dhows’ - The smallest of seven Emirates is Ajman, known for its white sandy beaches and delightful museum. It is a renowned dhow building centre and still uses traditional tools and methods. The city centre lies just 10 kilometers from Sharjah and the buildings of the two towns appear to merge along the beachfront.

Umm Al Quwain – Mother of the Powers - Situated between Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah, the old town of Umm Al Quwain is based around a large creek with perhaps the most beautiful mangrove coastline on the Arabian Gulf. Tourism and leisure facilities are expanding rapidly. The emirate extends inland to the fertile oasis surrounding Falaj Al Moualla where a substantial quantity of fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, poultry and dairy products are produced.

Ras Al Khaimah ‘Head of the Tent’ - The emirate lies in the UAE’s most northerly territory. It is one of the more fertile areas and has expanded its traditional seafaring existence to include agricultural and dairy produce. The city is made up of the old and the new towns. There are many places to visit; the museum, hot springs at Khatt, the camel race track at Digdagga and the ancient sites of Ghalilah and Shimal. The mountains above Ras Al Khaimah are the highest and spectacular in the Emirates.
