A beautiful place easily accessible from road. A little bit of off-road from here to the nearby hills gives u a beautiful view of the hills with small caves in it. We found a ruins of an old villages a few kilometers from this site

It took some locating
But was well worth the time
Could be better presented and protected
It is an ancient kiln going back with the history of the region and earthen ware locally made and used
Ras Al Khaimah is full of amazing history So much has been lost but much has been restored for all who want to remember where the emirates came from Valuing the past is important

Shamal is a place occupied mostly by local Emiratis is the reflection of the history and traditions of the whole Ras Alkhaima. You could visit the folklore club where you could see a lot of history

The Shimal area near Ras Al Khaimah has lots of interesting archaelogical and historical sites with tombs of the Umm al-Nar period (c 2500-2000 BC), pre-islamic graves, stone houses, watch towers, the ancient residence of the ruler of Julphar ("Sheba Palace") on top of a hill with stunning views, etc.
All accesses are free
Definitely worth a visit or visits
