Your guide to Fujairah holidays
The Gulf Coast is a haven for keen divers, with an abundance of exotic fish and coral reefs, plus a few small wrecks to explore. Snorkelers can also discover a magical world under the clear waters of the Gulf of Oman. Fujairah's location is one-of-a-kind, a sprawling city flanked by sandy shores where beach lovers can enjoy pristine beaches with all the facilities of the city close at hand. Fujairah is also home to a number of impressive mosques. Their stunning architecture and often impressive size aside, they also offer an authentic insight into life in the United Arab Emirates.
Fujairah’s cityscape is set against a beautiful mountainous backdrop, and these mountain areas are fantastic for exploring the region’s countryside. They are also home to the regional sport of wadi-bashing. You can hike or drive your way through the wadis (dry riverbeds) exploring and overcoming tough terrain on the way.
Although the city of Fujairah is a bustling business hub and boasts a high-rise skyline, the city also has fantastic beaches. This unique destination is the only part of the Emirates whose beaches are not on the Persian Gulf. Instead, Fujairah’s beaches are dotted along the Gulf of Oman. A mecca for snorkelling and diving enthusiasts thanks to the beautiful coral reefs and exotic sea creatures found lurking beneath the calm, clear waters. You can take advantage of the many different diving courses on offer, where skilled instructors are on hand to guide you every step of the way.
If you prefer to enjoy long, lazy days soaking up the sun, there are plenty of umbrellas and sun loungers lining the golden sands, including at beach front all inclusive hotels. Away from the beaches, Fujairah is just a stone’s throw from the Ain al-Madhab Hot Springs. Located at the base of the Hajar Mountains, these mineral-rich spring waters fill two separate pools. Family-friendly, and busy during public holidays and weekends, the pools are a fantastic place to relax and unwind - especially on a week day when there are fewer visitors.
