Welcome to Al Ruweis


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

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.
