Masfout Gate serves as the main entrance to the appealing enclave of Masfout, nestled in the Hajar Mountains.

Commissioned by the late Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi in 1961, Masfout Gate has two stone pillars connected by a sign featuring Arabic script. The sign greets visitors as they enter the city and bids them farewell as they leave.

Masfout is an easy 90-minute drive from Ajman city. Take Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Street out of the city, turn right onto Emirates Road and then follow the Sharjah-Kalba Road to Masfout.

Thanks to its craggy mountain backdrop and cooler temperatures, Masfout attracts picnicking local families and hikers.
