This gem of a location is the last pearl diving village of its kind in the Arabian Gulf, and now serves as the home of a prominent arts festival- it stands as one of the most historically and culturally significant locations in the UAE and Arabian Gulf.
Located in the south of Ras Al Khaimah, the island has recently been restored to it's old-world glory, and has played host to the Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival. Ongoing restoration and renovation works are focusing on the fort, and other prominent buildings and mosques.
The "Red Island" as the name translates is located in a prime area, within a short distance of the famed Al Hamra Village which is a popular area for tourists and UAE residents, and home to modern hotels, restaurants and residences, as well as a large shopping mall.
A family trip to Al Jazirah Al Hamra will give you the unique opportunity to take a stroll down memory lane into a wonderfully preserved slice of history, while enjoying all that the vibrant city of Ras Al Khaimah has to offer.
