Jazeera Al Hamra

Step foot into an authentic tapestry of abandoned houses and stone-washed buildings, including a mosque that many locals believe to be haunted. Al Jazeera Al Hamra, the oldest village in the UAE, stands as a beacon of classic Middle Eastern architecture with a fascinating eerie atmosphere. When oil was discovered in the 1970s, people fled from this pearling village. All other pearling villages in the entire Gulf region have been demolished since, making Al Jazeera Al Hamra a unique wonder of Arabian history.

The only remaining hilltop fortification remaining in the UAE, the stunning castle-like structure of Dhayah Fort is on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative list and stands tall above the wadis and date palm gardens of Ras Al Khaimah. It’s worth climbing the 239 zigzagged steps to experience the breath-taking views from the top as well as discovering the history of this Late Bronze Age settlement and fortification.
