For three seasons, the Ras Al Khaimah campground only operated on weekends…

Fancy escaping the hustle and bustle of every day city life with a cute glamping trip? Well, after three seasons of only opening on weekends, popular Ras Al Khaimah glamping spot Longbeach Campground will now be open on weekdays, too.

In the current travel climate, residents are less-inclined to travel abroad, so if you’re in desperate need of a short getaway, this could be just what you need. Longbeach Campground is very family-friendly and has beach access, a swimming pool, water sports and lots of fun activities.

Weekday operation starts from Sunday March 8, meaning that the campground will be open every day until the end of season, on May 1, when it closes for summer.

Half board packages include dinner and breakfast, served from live cooking stations on the beach, with complimentary soft drinks on offer throughout the day and three hours of alcoholic beverages in the evening.
