Welcome to Al Ruwais

The lovely, unspoilt beaches around the northern coast are a joy, but access is only possible in a 4WD; extreme care should be taken to follow previous tracks, both for environmental and for safety reasons.

Several abandoned villages, such as Al Khuwair and Al Arish, mark the road between Al Ruwais and Al Zubarah. They were vacated in the 1970s as the inhabitants were drawn to new areas of industry.
