The tourist center is located in the Umm Al Quwain lagoon where the natural green islands provide shelter for several square miles of clean and unpolluted water without the hazard of rough open sea, which is most ideal for water sport and small boat activities.

 

Falaj Al - Mualla

As the name indicates, Falaj Al-Mualla is the Oasis Town which lies in Al Batha Valley and is rich in agriculture. The town is connected with Umm Al Quwain city by an exceptionally scenic road running for much of its length alongside Wadi Al Batha.

Al Dur Island

Located along the coast near Umm Al Quwain is the famous archaeological site with the remains of a once important town of the region dating a little over 2000 years ago. Several interesting objects including impressive tombs, stone houses, large storage jars, and glassware from Egypt and Syria have been unearthed with successive excavations.

Al Siniyyah Island

Across the creek from Umm Al Quwain city lies this island, a haven for birds. The bird sanctuary is also noted for its mangrove swamps, representing an extremely delicate and a fast-dwindling ecosystem.

Umm Al Quwain Fort
The fort has a well displayed jewellery collection, in-depth weapons collection and material from the emirates Ad-Dur archaeological site. Most interesting of all, however, is the extraordinary story pinned to a wall of one of the towers relationg to the story of the murder of Ruler Ahmed Bin Ibrahim Al Mualla, by his cousin-servant in 1929 and how the people in a rage burnt the murdurer alive inside the tower. A must visit
Umm Al Quwain Marine Club

Located on the shores of the creek provides facilities for wind surfing, water skiing and sailing. The Emirate has also the finest horse riding club linked to a marina, where Equestrian events are held each winter.
Finally, as is the case with other Emirates, camels are treasured and camel racing is held in Al Labsa, one of the UAE's most attractive race tracks, located on the road to the Falaj Al Mualla, near the banks of the valley. The Emirate is also famous for hawks and falcons.
