Ras Al Khaimah is a fantastic choice for a family trip, and a warm welcome awaits children of all ages (including the young at heart!). You’ll find plenty of ways to fill your days in the sun, from unmatched cultural experiences to shopping, dining, and water parks.
Saqr Park, located in the Kieran area, is a beautifully maintained oasis of green, boasting large shade trees, lush lawns, and beautiful flowers. Bring a picnic lunch and linger, spending the day exploring and relaxing.
The park contains both indoor and outdoor attractions accessible free of charge.

Saqr Park is cherished by locals and visitors alike. Spend a day there, and you’ll likely make a few new friends before you leave!
