Despite being the smallest of the emirates, Ajman still has lots to offer travellers, including fine dining, luxury hotels and pristine beaches, with a few heritage attractions thrown in for good measure. The relatively undeveloped coastline means that you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the Arabian Gulf as you soak up the sun on golden sandy beaches.

‚ÄčAjman Corniche
A stroll along Ajman’s bustling Corniche is a must-do during the milder months. It boasts plenty of amenities including cafes, shops and a tidal pool for safe swimming. There are some excellent traditional restaurants, too – try the seafood at Themar Al Bahar or the Middle Eastern cuisine at Attibrah – if you feel like lingering over a sit-down lunch in the sunshine.

Ajman Equestrian Centre
The Ajman Equestrian Centre is a great place to learn more about the emirate’s traditional sport and get into the saddle yourself. It houses more than 100 well-trained Arabian horses, and offers a range of lessons and riding activities for visitors of all abilities.

Ajman Museum
This 18th century fort houses an astonishing collection of artefacts and archaeological findings. One of the highlights is an exhibition of an excavated cemetery discovered in the Al Muwaihat area; some of the pottery and jewellery found during the excavation dates back as far as 3,000 BC.

Souks & markets
For authenticity, skip the malls and head to the markets. Haggle for the catch of the day at the lively fish souk, where you can have your purchase seasoned and grilled onsite, and pick up handmade trinkets and pretty jewels in the city centre souk area.
