Looking for a digital detox? This is a perfect weekend getaway…
Longbeach Campground in Ras Al Khaimah is the perfect glamping resort for groups of friends, couples and families alike to enjoy a weekend away from the city. The resort offers complimentary activities that everyone will enjoy, including beach access, outdoor swimming pool and water sports.
Now in its third season, Longbeach boasts everything from archery, sunrise yoga and banana boat rides to darts tournaments, marshmallow toasting and kids’ karate.
The resort offers a few different tent options, from the minimalist to the impressive, all including a half board package. Dinner and breakfast will be provided, with complimentary soft drinks on offer throughout the day and three hours of alcoholic beverages in the evening.
The deluxe tent is the teepee-style bell tent, located directly on the beach, offering a sea view and kingsize mattress, ideal for couples.
