Travel Information

It can be tricky getting here, but essentially take the E22 (Al Ain/Dubai Road) and take first exit after crossing Al Maqta Bridge. At the roundabout take the first exit so that effectively you're going back in the same direction you've come from. Go under the Maqta Bridge and park at the Fort which is under construction. The Tower stands separately in the Khor Al Maqta channel.
