Getting there & around
Tiny Ras al-Khaimah airport (228 8809) is 22.5km south of Al-Nakheel.
There are no bus services within the emirate or to other emirates. The taxi station is on Sheikh Mohammad bin Salem St just south of the Bin Majid Beach Hotel on the other side of the street. A shared taxi to Dubai will cost Dh25, and to Sharjah, Ajman or Umm al-Quwain Dh20. There are no shared taxis to Fujairah; it will cost you around Dh160 to engage one.
Taxis within the town aren’t metered. A trip from the old town to Al-Nakheel shouldn’t cost more than Dh10. Agree on the fare before you get in.
