Kalba

Revel in the magnificence of nature and rare wildlife

Among Kalba’s many charms are the restored hisn (fort), a historic former royal residence and a pleasant seaside promenade. On the southern outskirts of the town, the tidal Khor Kalba boasts the oldest mangrove forest in Arabia inhabited by two of the world’s rarest birds.

The only difficult part about visiting Kalba is deciding where to go first. Explore the museum at Bait Sheikh Saeed bin Hamed Al Qassimi, see magnificent falcons in flight at the Kalba Bird of Prey Centre and go bird-watching or kayaking among the mangroves.
