THE ISLANDS - Akab


The island of Akab is situated in a coastal lagoon adjacent to the town of Umm al-Qaiwain, on the Arabian Gulf coast of the northern emirates. Low-lying and sandy, it has typical halophytic (salt-tolerant) vegetation, while there are mangroves (Avicennia marina) along parts of its shoreline.

The island was used as a butchery site for dugongs (Dugong dugon) by the Late Stone Age inhabitants of the coastal zone in the fourth millennium BC, probably on a seasonal basis. Dugongs are now extremely rare in the area, and the site provides valuable evidence of the former distribution of this endangered species of marine mammal.
