Situated along the Persian Gulf, Ajman holidays make for a perfect getaway destination, especially for those who are looking to relax on its spectacular beaches. Boasting a 16km white-sand coastline, which is surrounded by lush natural mangrove forests, plus chic city life further inland - which is just over a 30-minute drive from glamorous Dubai - this scenic resort combines relaxation with exploration, perfectly. It may be the smallest of the seven emirates that make up the UAE, but this destination certainly has a lot to shout about thanks to a new wave of development.
Camel racing, multi-coloured souks (including popular Souq Saleh and Gold Souq) and authentic museums allow you to experience a glimpse of local Arabian culture, today and in the past. The pleasant year-round climate (which shares the same temperatures as neighbouring Dubai) makes holidays to Ajman an ideal choice whether you want a splash of summer or late winter sun, with plenty of activities and things to see and do. Those who want top attractions, incredible wildlife preserves, and high-end hotels can take advantage of the luxurious Al-Zorah development, sure to impress any visitor. Also, some of the most exciting things to do when you’re on Ajman is to experience a desert safari, where you’re likely to spot wildlife, enjoy a camel ride and learn about traditional henna paintings, or hop on a Pearl Dhow experience ride. Adventure seekers can also go a step further and hike to the Hajar mountains, (located very close to Masfout). The main city of Ajman hosts over 90% of the population, and offers numerous attractions and beaches, including Ajman Museum, Umm Al-Quwain Fort and Museum, and of course the Ajman Beach, great if you’re looking for diversity during your stay.
