Most of the United Arab Emirates is a desert wasteland, with large, rolling sand dunes, as the outer reaches of the Rub' Al Khali Desert stretch into the country.

The coastal areas fronting the Persian Gulf are flat, while the Hajar Mountains dominate the landscape in the northeast. Jabal Yibir, the country's highest point, is located there, which rises to 5,666 ft. (1,727 m).

The United Arab Emirates has no significant rivers or lakes of note.

Numerous small island and inlets are situated offshore in the Persian Gulf.
