Flanked on one side by the imposing Hajar mountains & on the other by the pristine waters of the Indian Ocean, the ‘Jewel of Arabia,’ Fujairah, sits pretty with its delightful rural idyll, old school vibes & untouched natural beauty. Just an hour’s drive from Dubai & Sharjah, this charming emirate completely owns the eastern coastline and offers some of the best scuba-diving & snorkelling in UAE.
Situated on the Gulf of Oman & stretching for about 90 kilometres, Fujairah is one of the 7 emirates which make up the United Arab Emirates. There’s more to Fujairah than just its striking beaches. It is a key business city of the Middle East, due to its port, oil and shipping related industry. With the advent of the free trade zone and under the patronage of the Prince Sheikh Hamad bin Al Sharqi, the city has developed rapidly, receiving investments from top-notch companies across myriad sectors of the economy.
No less flourishing is Fujairah’s throbbing port, which is the UAE’s only gateway to the Indian Ocean. From bunkering, repair and cargo services to livestock handling, marine supply and container handling, Fujairah port sees it all under its roof. Extensive rugged mountains, glittering sandy beaches, amazing archaeological sites, awe-inspiring historical wonders, and extensive oases make Fujairah a popular tourist destination.
