PEARL FARM

Taking a fascinating trip to the yesteryears, to a time when pearling was once the pillar of the country’s economy, is Abdullah Al Suwaidi, who set up the region’s first cultured pearl farm in 2005 on the very waters that had produced the finest Arabian pearls coveted by royals, nobles and celebrities in distant lands. The pearl farm is located on a sliver alongside the sea and the mountains that Al Rams nestles. Visitors learn about the history and techniques of pearl farming and try opening an oyster.

JEBEL JAIS ZIPLINE TOUR

Fly over the awe-inspiring cliffs and canyons of Jebel Jais as you zip from platform to platform in this unique experience. Covering a total distance of 5km via a series of 7 ziplines, ranging from 337m to just over 1km, the Jebel Jais Zipline Tour will give you a panoramic, bird’s eye view of the towering Hajar mountains.

Navigate your way through the sky averaging speeds of 60kmph and find yourself at the UAE’s highest sky bridge, 1,250m above sea level. Pause to take a photograph before you walk across the length of 15m bridge and continue the last part of your zipline journey.  After an hour of soaring through the sky, we guarantee you will want to do it all over again!
