GEM-LIKE AJMAN SPARKLES WITH MILES OF PRISTINE TALCUM-SOFT SAND BEACHES TRIMMED BY SWAYING PALM TREES.

Ajman might be the smallest of the seven emirates, but this port city’s natural beauty knows no bounds. Minarets mingle with modern office towers, swathes of powder-white sand pop against the piercing-blue Persian Gulf, and all are drawn to the relaxed cafes and coffee houses along the coastal corniche.

DISCOVERIES

AJMAN FISH MARKET
SHEIKH RASHID BIN SAEED AL MAKTOUM STREET, MUSHERIF COMMERCIAL
Ajman Fish Market

Traditional dhow boats glide up to the pier of the Ajman Fish Market where fishermen empty their heavy nets and arrange the day’s catch in tidy rows right on the dock, or piled high in baskets. Mingle with locals wending their way through over 100 stalls selling just-snagged fish, meat, bright produce, sugar cane, fresh squeezed juice and even pet fish.

AJMAN MUSEUM
CENTRAL SQUARE, AL BUSTAN
Ajman Museum

This 18th-century fortress with sand-hued towers and high walls, was the city’s first line of defense and the ruler’s residence until 1970. Wander the grounds today for a historical glimpse into traditional life through dioramas, photographs, manuscripts and a weapons exhibit.

MUSEUM OF ISLAMIC CIVILIZATION
Al-Majjarah area
Museum Of Islamic Civilization

Time travel across thousands of years of Islamic history beneath the golden dome of a thoughtfully restored former souk. Opened in 2008, this well-curated museum has over 5,000 artifacts on display from the Islamic world including coins, pottery, wood carvings, manuscripts and scientific instruments among them.

DHOW YARD
NORTH SIDE OF AJMAN CREEK
Dhow Yard

Observe the ancient craft of shipbuilding at the world’s largest active dhow yard. These wooden Arabic vessels with long thin hulls and lateen sails are still prevalent in the Persian Gulf for transporting goods and fishing. For centuries, the word-of-mouth craft—no blueprints are used—are constructed by hand using traditional tools.

MOWAIHAT ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE
OUTSKIRTS OF AJMAN
Mowhait

In 1986 a construction crew laying a sewage pipe stumbled upon a remarkable find: a circular tomb dating back to 2000-2,500 B.C. in the the UMM Al Nar period. Upon more digging, signs of an ancient and important civilization—ceramic vessels, beads and copper tools—were also discovered. The site itself is a draw for those with an interest in archaeology, and any of the recovered artifacts are on display at the Ajman museum.
