Discover Sharjah's Hidden Gem

Deep in the deserts of Sharjah lies a landscape that makes you feel like you've been beamed up to Mars. Mleiha Archaeological Centre has something for everyone. Visit the museum, go dune bashing, camp overnight under the stars, or simply explore the endless red dunes. Mleiha holds history dating back 130,000 years ago to the Paleolithic era which was discovered around forty years ago. If you are going from Dubai to Mleiha it is definitely worth the hour's drive.

On a recent visit I got to view Mleiha from a different vantage point; From 'up in the air'. The stunning landscape just blew me away! Click on the short drone video above for a glimpse into the vast desert of Mleiha.
