Located northernmost of the seven United Arab Emirates is Ras Al Khaimah (RAK). This relatively new comer of the UAE has some great hotels that line the golden beaches, and it’s increasingly becoming more popular with the UK. With year-round sunshine, RAK is ideal for a winter sun break as temperatures are at the most comfortable during winter.
Ras Al Khaimah holidays will not disappoint, but it’s easily combined with somewhere else in the Emirates. We recommend a visit to anyone who's already been to Dubai and Abu Dhabi, or would just like to add a more relaxing stay to the end of their holiday in the UAE. Ras Al Khaimah offers endless opportunities for activities and adventure, with everything from water sports to desert experiences, golf, historical sites, or just complete relaxation.
Leave the bright lights and glamour of the city behind and head towards the endless, dramatic deserts capes surrounding Ras Al Khaimah. Here, traditional Arabic cultures, dazzling night skies, fascinating wildlife, and a laid-back pace of living awaits.
