7 Best Beaches in Ras al Khaimah, UAE

Ras al Khaimah has numerous attractions. But it's no secret that the many beaches that go over its 64-kilometer coastline are among the most popular places to visit. Some of the most gorgeous Ras al Khaimah landscapes can be seen along its shores, and there are lots of local cultures to have right on the beach sand.

So, if you're thinking about jetting off to Ras al Khaimah, you're probably interested in finding the best beaches in Ras al Khaimah. To be honest, you'll be hard-pressed to find a Ras al Khaimah best beach that doesn't hit the spot, but I've still done some research for you and selected the 7 best beaches in Ras al Khaimah.

Al Jeer Beach

Lying only a kilometer away from the Oman Border is Al Jeer beach. You'll experience one of the scenic beaches in Ras al Khaimah; with clear water and fantastic waves. It comes with an improved area with benches that are ideal for staring at the waves or capturing a view of the sunset.  Aside, you will find there's a stone pathway along the Al Jeer beach. There are a few farmhouses nearby belonging to locals in case you would like to stay. On Al Jeer Beach, you'll generally stay in the company of these locals and a few tourists. The downside is you won't find many features and any water sports here. The atmosphere is exclusively sluggish, and people come here mainly to comprehend intact stillness during their holiday in Ras al Khaimah.

Jazirat Al Hamra Beach

Unfortunately, Ras al Khaimah doesn't have many free public beaches. But, no worry; I've found a few and Jazirat Al Hamra beach is one of them. It is a public beach nestled at Jazirat Al Hamra Old Town about 35 km far from Ras Al Khaimah. Being a public beach, Jazirat Al Hamra is one of the popular beaches and among the must-visit spots for seaside buffs. Also, it's a minimal wave beach, making it possible for even learners to swim here. However, Please be aware that Jazirat Al Hamra beach isn't snorkeling friendly given that the water is shallow here. It's good for walking, sunset, and low-scale swimming.

The simplest way to reach Jazirat Al Hamra Beach is by car. So you may have to rent a car in Ras Al Khaimah city before visiting. There's also enough parking space at Jazirat Al Hamra beach.

Cove Rotana Beach

This enchanting and attractive beach belongs to Rota hotel and hence is best for couples and families. This 600 meters golden sands beach has an array of amenities that is greatly regarded by Rotana hotel guests. Being a private property, the beach is usually peaceful, therefore it is ideal to spend a day off from everything to unwind on a sunny day.

Al Mairid Public Beach

Nicely situated near the Al Mairid waterfront community; this stunning beach in RAK is among the most frequently visited beaches in Ras al Khaimah. On top of that, the beach is designed for a family day out. If you're fortunate, you'll be able to view fishing and play volleyball at Al Mairid public beach. Lots of car parking is accessible around the beach area.

Shaam Beach

One of the best beaches in Ras al Khaimah; Shaams beach is the heart of Ras al Khaimah, both in terms of accessibility and also in allure. To get there, you've to go by the Rak cement factory, so wear masks to get away from the dust. The beachfront has Shaam hospital; I'm speculating the rooms would have beautiful views of the beach. On the main road, you will find restaurants and cafes. The negative aspect is it doesn't have any showers or changing rooms. Otherwise, it's very relaxing and restful.

Saraya Island

Finding tranquility at Ras al Khaimah public beach generally is challenging. But if you head to Saraya Island, you'll get the bright sands with significantly fewer tourists; without compromising on beautiful and magnificent views. It is captivating to watch the sunset from the beach. This island beach is unquestionably one of the top hidden beaches in Ras al Khaimah. You will be able to get to the first part of the beach with any car. But it would require a Four wheel drive in order to go further south along the beach.

Sidroh Beach

Situated down the Ras Al Khaimah Corniche, Sidroh is a beachfront family-friendly residential area. About 3-minutes far from the residential community, you will find Sidroh Beach. Being in a remote area from the main city, you'll find Sidroh quiet and magnificent with amazing beach views. Sidroh beach is ideal for re-energizing since there are numerous tea shops across Sidroh beach. Enjoy a lovely sea view, an evening walk, and dip your feet in the Arabian ocean.
