General Information

Umm Al Quwain is located along the coast of the Arabian Gulf, between Ajman to the west, and Ras Al Khaimah to the east. Its land spreads towards the interior for a distance of 32 km approximately. The total territory covers 800 sq km.

The Ruler of Umm Al Quwain is H.H. Sheikh Rashid bin Ahmed Al Mu'alla. He succeeded his father in 1981.

Population: around 35,000 inhabitants.

The name “Umm Al Quwain” is derived from “Umm AI Quwatain”, which means ‘Mother of two powers', a reference to the powerful seafaring tradition of this emirate.

The traditional occupation of this emirate has been fishing and date cultivation. Today’s economy based on pearl diving, fishing, agriculture and breeding of livestock has diversified and expanded rapidly with the foresight of the emirate's development policy.

The old city of Umm Al Quwain, scenically located on a north-pointing promontory has retained its peace, charm and distinctive character. It has developed between the sea and a deep creek overlooking the mangrove lagoons and quaint sandy islands and inlets. The coast to the south offers some of the finest unspoilt shores to be found in the Emirates, with clean, clear waters and white sandy beaches. The enchanting mangroves on the opposite side of the city provide a haven for fishermen, wildlife and a variety of birds.
