Dhayah Fort

Ras Al Khaimah Business Travel Guide - - BUSINESS TRAVEL -

“With a back­drop of steep moun­tains, the bay of Dhayah has al­ways been a very fer­tile area and has been set­tled in at least since the third mil­len­nium BC. A con­i­cal shaped hill at the edge of the palm gar­dens and at the foot of the moun­tains, served as a nat­u­ral de­fence post for the oa­sis. Peo­ple have used this hill since pre­his­toric times for set­tle­ment and for­ti­fi­ca­tion alike... It is the only hill­top fort still ex­ist­ing in the UAE and of­fers a fan­tas­tic view of the lush palm gar­dens, the sea and the dra­matic moun­tains.”
