Al Hamra Marina & Yacht Club
An Escape from the Middle East’s Warm and Dry Climate
Ras Al Khaimah in United Arab Emirates is gifted with natural wonders. It is just one among several places in the country that boast of mountain clusters and beaches. Al Hamra Marina & Yacht Club helps its members and guests discover and enjoy the natural wonders in RAK.
Before the water activities, guests are expected to have already checked into a hotel. Finding a nearby hotel shouldn’t be a challenge as there are several hotels and resorts near the clubhouse. These hotels and resorts include The Cove Rotana Hotel, Bin Majed Resort, and Rixos Bab El Bahr. Five-star hotels such as the Hilton Hotels (one of the top favorites) are also available in RAK.
Tourists are sure to enjoy swimming in the bodies of water. Furthermore, club members can enjoy yachting, sailing, and water sports. Some yachts can be rented, making it possible for guests to experience the activities offered to club members. Boats can be rented for fishing trips, too.
Yachting and sailing are great ways to unwind and let the sea breeze refresh and rejuvenate you. If you are planning a party, a yacht can serve as the venue. For couples, a wedding proposal may be done while sailing as well.
The seas offer scenic views as you coast along the water. During mornings, the clear blue waters and the sky can cool tourists down. Sunsets in the afternoons are also worth watching while you are on the seas. An evening spent at the yacht is perfect for stargazing, admiring the city lights, and enjoying a romantic dinner.
Water sports activities in RAK have caught the attention of enthusiasts from all over the world. These activities include jet skiing, water skiing, and wind surfing.
