The emirate of Umm Al Quwain is set on the western coast of the United Arab Emirates. The land here offers coastal activities as well as inland adventures. There is no airport in the immediate area, but several are located in nearby emirates such as Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah. Traveling within the city can be easily done by the provided taxi services.
There is much to see and do in Umm Al Quwain. Umm Al Quwain Fort is a great stop for those interested in the history of the emirate and its surroundings. Now a museum
, the fort displays artifacts that were found at nearby sites, especially Al-Dour – an ancient city considered the largest pre-Islamic site on the Persian Gulf coast. Some water-based adventure can be had among the islands that lie to the east of the mainland peninsula. Dreamland Aqua Park is pure fun and entertainment and can be a great break from exploring. The Aquarium and Happyland
are family-friendly attractions for all ages, and a truly unique experience awaits at Al Labsa, where the camel race track is located.
Umm Al Quwain has a few accommodation options that are conveniently located near various city attractions – both right on the beach and some found more inland. Be sure to check out the interactive map of Umm Al Quwain for information on hotel locations, attractions, and must-see destinations.
