Pearl Farm

Miss Teak Cruise

Taking a fascinating trip to the yesteryears, to a time when pearling was once the pillar of the country’s economy, is Abdullah Al Suwaidi, who set up the region’s first cultured pearl farm in 2005 on the very waters that had produced the finest Arabian pearls coveted by royals, nobles and celebrities in distant lands.

The pearl farm is located on a sliver alongside the sea and the mountains that Al Rams nestles. Visitors learn about the history and techniques of pearl farming and try opening an oyster.
