Located 7. 5km from Umm Al Quwain city lies Al Rass. Covering less than 3km of land area, Al Rass is a quiet and small fishing area in the sparsely populated emirate. Yet this has not kept developers from planning and executing projects in the area, especially to improve its residential features. Al Rass is known for its plant, marine and wildlife. Though not a major tourist attraction, the peninsula at Al Raas is an ideal getaway for daytime trips and nighttime BBQs. There are a couple of old fishing villages in the area. Bird lovers can also spot flamingos and other wild birds. While development is underway, what you’re looking at here is a largely unoccupied area which is highly calm and serene, but self-sufficient. Currently, you can rent studios, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom apartments at low prices, making it ideal for students, professionals, couples and small families.
