Standing proud on the Corniche, Al-Murabaa Watchtower has been the city’s first line of defence since the 1930s.

The Arabian Peninsula is dotted with mud-brick forts and watchtowers, built to protect coastal towns, and the sandy-coloured Al-Murabaa Watchtower has served as the guardian of Ajman for over 80 years.

Commissioned by the late Sheikh Rashid Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi and restored in 2000, the watchtower is a key landmark along the attractive Corniche.

Join the locals strolling along the attractive waterfront esplanade, which overlooks a 16 kilometre-long beach and is dotted with restaurants, cafés and shops.
