Blessed with some 64 kilometres of pristine coastline, Ras Al Khaimah spoils you for choice with its soft sandy beaches and warm Arabian Gulf waters.

And, with all-year-round sunshine and balmy temperatures ranging from 19 degrees Celsius in the coolest winter months to more than 35 degrees Celsius in July and August, every day is a beach day.

If you are looking for sun, sea and sand, Ras Al Khaimah offers a wide range of luxury properties with their own private beaches where you can enjoy plenty of beach and water activities or just chill. Here are three seaside vacation hotspots to check out:

InterContinental Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa

One of Ras Al Khaimah’s newest luxury hotels, the InterContinental Ras Al Khaimah Resort and Spa is located on Hayat Island, surrounded by tranquil waters of the Arabian Gulf. With breath-taking views of the spectacular Hajar mountain range there is no finer backdrop as you relax on the private beach or by the pool.

This coastal haven features sea-facing rooms, suites and villas, some with private pools, while seaside activities range from sunrise beach yoga, kayaking and stand-up paddling, to dining at Levant & Nar, a Lebanese-inspired restaurant with al fresco seating and ocean views.

Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Hamra Beach

Accessible by boat, the Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Hamra Beach is an island-inspired resort with a private white-sand beach on Al Hamra Island.

Secluded and luxurious, the boutique resort offers pool villa accommodation, some with beach access and ocean views. Wellness experiences draw inspiration from the sea, while water activities include fishing, kayaking and paddleboarding, and dining options are poolside or beachside, with cuisine focused on the catch of the day.

Doubletree by Hilton Resort and Spa Marjan Island

Located on a 650-metre private beach on Marjan Island, an artificial archipelago considered Ras Al Khaimah’s premier lifestyle destination, DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island offers 13 bars and restaurants, seven pools, paddle courts, a spa, a kids’ club and much more.

There are rooms and suites with sea views and some with beach access, as well as magnificent beach villas that can sleep up to eight guests, while fun facilities and activities include a floating trampoline, beach volleyball and watersports galore.
