From the world’s longest zipline across its craggy peaks to the soft sands by the Arabian Gulf, Ras al Khaimah has much to offer outdoor enthusiasts. Head out into the desert to spot wildlife such as camels, goats and the rare Arabian oryx. Visitors can also explore the ancient heritage of the emirate in local museums and attractions. An abundance of water sports is available, from gliding across the Gulf by paddleboard to sailing off for a day of fishing. Alternatively, share family fun in a private pool overlooking the treetops in Mina Al Arab.
