IntroductionThis small emirate 105 mi/170 km northeast of Abu Dhabi has no major attractions, but it could be interesting to explore for a day. The town of Umm Al Quwain sits on a peninsula and has an old fort, a mosque and a few watchtowers. The other major town, Falaj al-Mualla, is an oasis that's also an important dairy, poultry and date-growing center. There is a lagoon with mangrove swamps and bird life. It's a popular weekend spot for boat trips and other watersports.
