Ras Al Khaimah Guide
Location

Al Jazirah Al Hamra

Al Jazirah Al Hamra, meaning “the Red Island” in English, is the historic home of the Al Zaabi tribe. It was a traditional pearling village before being abruptly abandoned in the early 1970s. The Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival has called the village home since 2019 and, in its continued restoration and conservation, Al Jazirah Al Hamra now stands as a bridge between cultural heritage and contemporary art.

Location

Al Marjan Open Park

Al Marjan Island extends a vast 4.5 kilometers into the sea and covers an area of 2.7 million square meters. It is home to some of Ras Al Khaimah’s most luxurious hotels and apartments. The Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival takes route by the Corniche, the white sands adding an aura of serenity to the Festival’s character and providing an elegant setting for our outdoor film screenings and satellite exhibition.
