With its beautiful mountain range, outdoor adventures and chilled out way of life all within easy reach of Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) is quickly becoming a hotspot for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
It’s already a popular weekend escape for people in Dubai, a place to get away from city life and enjoy the tranquillity of the natural scenery.
But the northern emirate is more than a destination for a long weekend.
With prime property available to buy and rent, and a sense of peacefulness you just can’t get in Dubai, more people are starting to embrace the short 60-minute commute and moving to RAK.
Here are five reasons you should definitely consider moving to Ras Al Khaimah:
1. It’s a more relaxed way of life
With a thriving community feel, stunning beaches as far as the eye can see, and an easygoing lifestyle, RAK is as comfortable to live in as it is beautiful.
Escape the hustle-bustle of Dubai, away from traffic jams and the revving engines of supercars, but content in knowing that city life is just a short drive away when you need it.
2. You’ll be closer to outdoor adventures
Though RAK is more easy going there’s still plenty to do, including water sports, trekking the mountains, playing epic golf courses and much more besides.
You can explore the Hajar Mountains, and soon you’ll be able to glide down the world’s LONGEST zipline on the UAE’s tallest mountain, Jebel Jais.
With the emerging recreational activities and destinations opening up in RAK, it’s going to be all about this emirate in the coming years.
3. The property won’t cost you the earth
Try finding a studio in Dubai with a sea-view for AED 25,000? Yeah right!
But that’s what you’d pay to live in Pacific, a newly completed and award-winning beachfront development on RAK’s gorgeous Al Marjan Island, the region’s answer to Dubai’s iconic Palm Jumeirah.
Better still, you can also pay your rent in up to four cheques. And, as you’d be renting straight from the developer, say goodbye to agent and commission fees. Bargain!
4. It’s ideal for families
Given the more bang for your buck in rent, the easy-going atmosphere of the emirate, and the community vibes, RAK makes for the perfect home for your family.
It’s safe, there are beautiful public play areas, excellent beaches and outdoors activities to help the kids burn off some steam, and plenty of room to spread out.
5. It’s home to the up-and-coming Marjan Island
Al Marjan Island is a cluster of four islands off the coast of Ras Al Khaimah that will become a hotspot for residential property, tourism and commercial enterprises.
Home to several resorts and properties already, a huge corniche, a beautiful beach club, town centre and loads more, Al Marjan Island is going to be THE place to be in coming years.
