Indeed, during the winter months of December and January, you can expect the temperature to average around 25°C and during the summer, temperatures are known to soar into the high thirties.
However, when the mercury rises, there are a few places you can go to cool off, enjoying thrills and excitement along the way.
Ras Al Khaimah’s location makes it ideal for visitors to do just this, with numerous water sport options, aqua adventures and high altitude activities on offer.
So, read on to find out how you can stay cool and enjoy incredible experiences at the same time.
Ras Al Khaimah occupies a prime stretch on the glistening Arabian Gulf coast, benefiting from a selection of great beaches, both public and hotel-owned.
All boast golden sands and crystal-clear waters where you can swim and splash about. Ras Al Khaimah is also a great destination for snorkelling, with a wealth of marine life to discover.
You’ll also find a range of water sports on offer at most of the beaches, with many hotels offering everything from jet and water skiing to flyboarding and parasailing.
If you would rather keep cool on dry land, then the Hajar Mountain range is the place to go, with temperatures around 10 degrees less than the norm in this sun-drenched destination. It is also where you will find Ras Al Khaimah’s highest peak, Jebel Jais and the World’s Longest Zipline – Jebel Jais Flight. This exhilarating ride shoots adrenaline junkies across 2.8 kilometres of breathtaking, rugged landscapes, hitting speeds of up to 93mph along the way.
The thrills don’t stop there, with Jebel Jais also being home to Ras Al Khaimah’s Via Ferrata, a protected climbing trail which has a steel cable running the length of the route so climbers can keep themselves clipped on and safe. The Via Ferrata features zipline segments to add to the fun and test the limits of those brave enough to take on the traverse.
A PADI dive resort, the Al Jazeera Diving and Swimming Centre has been a long-standing institute at the heart of Ras Al Khaimah.
From helping young guests swim for the first time, to aiding both experienced and novice divers develop their skills in the water, this aqua hub is a great place to spend sun-soaked days.
Visitors of all ages and levels are welcome at Fly Fish Water Sports Club, with a huge range of activities to partake in.
Here you’ll find all the classic options, from jet skis, to kayaking and paddle boarding.
Big groups can opt for traditional boat and fishing trips, or choose a more exhilarating option on a banana boat ride or its bigger brother, known as Big Mable.
Looking for something different? Try your hand at kneeboarding, hiring a jetpack or walk (well cycle) on water with the popular Aqua Trike, perfect for children.
For a luxury approach to life on the water, look no further than the Al Hamra Marina and Yacht Club.
A dedicated clubhouse, restaurant, maintenance garage and fuelling station barely scratches the surface when it comes to the facilities at this lavish spot.
Whether you’re a member or simply visiting, you can enjoy a number of experiences, from boat rentals, to fishing trips and sailing excursions.
Those looking to top up their water skills can arrange lessons at the dedicated sailing academy.
