Jazirat al-Hamra (Red Island) is the last authentic and traditional town still standing in the UAE. Once a small island, its inhabitants subsisted on maritime and pearling trading before they abandoned their houses in the middle of the 20th Century, when the rush to modernize started. An undisturbed picture of life before the discovery of oil is left behind and preserved until today. This whole area is unique for Ras Al Khaimah and for UAE, its shows all the elements of a traditional town, including fortress for the defense purposes, several mosques and a variety of house types. It is one of the best places to study traditional coral stone architecture used along the coast of the Arabian Gulf.
Ras al Khaimah’s rich archeological legacy is distinguished by some unique features and historical attractiveness such as old forts and watch towers scattered along its coasts line. One of these important forts is Dhayah Fort located north of the Al Rams Town. Dhayah has always been a very fertile area and has been settled at least since the third millennium BC. Records show that the Fort appears to have been built during the 19th Century on the foundations of much older structures. It is the only hilltop fort still in existence in the UAE. Upon climbing to the top, visitors are rewarded with a fantastic view of the lush palm gardens below, the Arabian Gulf to one side and the dramatic Hajjar Mountains to the other.
from a respectable age, is the hill fort immediately above the village of Shimal, also known as ‘Sheba’s Palace’. In the reality this fort has nothing whatsoever to do with the Queen of Sheba, who died more than 2,000 years before it was built. So great was her fame in Arabia that her name is often linked to ancient ruins built long after her time. The Palace ruins are accessible through a modern stairway which follows the original medieval approach. It is the only ancient Islamic palace known in UAE and dates back to the days of Julfar, once the most famous and prosperous trading town in the whole lower gulf.
Ras Al Khaimah’s fortunes in days gone by were built sailing of Dhows. These sturdy wooden boats, made by hand can still be seen in Ras Al Khaimah on the Maarid Beach.

From the earliest of times the people of Ras Al Khaimah used their boats for fishing, pearling and transporting.
Camels are still a common sight in the sandy desert areas of Ras Al Khaimah. In some villages it is quite common to see them nibbling their way down the main street.

The race track is one of the liveliest places to visit in the emirates through the winter months. The area is busy with trainers and colorfully clad camels with their blankets and muzzles to prevent them from eating anything but their specially prepared nutritious race diet. On weekdays, groups of camels trot easily up and down the track, training and building up stamina for the big races to come on the weekends.
