Travel Tips & Advice for Dubai Surrounds

Dubai Surrounds Activities

With its pristine sands and warm waters, Ajman beach operates at a different pace to those in Dubai, allowing you to enjoy a barbecue without a care in the world. Fujairah is a great destination for travelling back in time; as well as Al Badiyah mosque, the ancient Fujairah fort and excellent Fujairah museum are on its doorstep. If you want a holiday to the surrounds of Dubai that encompass outdoors activities, from horse riding to parasailing, Ras Al-Khaimah has got it covered.

Dubai Surrounds Food & Drink

There is plenty of choice when it comes to food and drink in Ajman, with the likes of Safi proffering Asian-influenced seafood and Sabella's offering the most authentic Italian food outside Italy. Gonu Bar & Grill in Fujairah is a carnivore's dream, while Al Meshwar serves finger-lickingly good Lebanese food. Lexington Grill is the place to go for a refined dinner reservation in Ras al-Khaimah, while Al Moohit is where it is at for local seafood, mint lemonade and great service.

Dubai Surrounds Attractions

If you are planning a luxury holiday to the surrounds of Dubai and find yourself in Ajman, the Al Zorah nature reserve, with its lagoons, creeks and varied birdlife is a must-see. On a similar tip, the protected Wadi Wurayah area near Fujairah - believed to be among the last places in the United Arab Emirates where the Arabian leopard survives - is also not to be missed. For something a bit different, visit the abandoned town of Al Jazirah Al Hamra to the south of Ras al-Khaimah.
