Fujairah is one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, and the only one of the seven that has a coastline solely on the Gulf of Oman and none on the Arabian Gulf.
Fujairah is an emirate on the east coast of the United Arab Emirates, lying along the Gulf of Oman. It is mainly known for its beaches and the Hajar Mountains, which run through much of the emirate. In the south, the city of Fujairah is home to the massive Sheikh Zayed Mosque, with its towering white minarets. Overlooking the city is Fujairah Fort, a reconstructed 17th-century fortress featuring round and square towers.
The Al Badiyah Mosque is the oldest existing mosque in the United Arab Emirates. It is located in a small village in the emirate of Fujairah about 50 kms north from the city center. It is also known as the Ottoman Mosque.
The charming agricultural town of Dibba nestles in the shadow of the rugged Musandam Peninsula, between the stark beauty of the Hajar Mountains and the clear, azure waters of the Gulf of Oman. Dibba has a rich heritage of fishing and agriculture, with a thriving fish market, date farms and citrus orchards.
Due to its location over looking the Gulf of Oman and the stunning Indian Ocean, it has become a very popular destination for anyone trying to escape the stresses of life and looking to enjoy the beauty of nature and having a comfortable, relaxing and exciting break. With countless activities, from water sports to flying lessons and spas, Fujairah is guaranteed to keep you busy.
