Fujairah is located on the shores of the Gulf of Oman (Indian Ocean). A significant part of its territory is occupied by mountains that approach the coast almost closely. This principality has a port at the entrance to the Persian Gulf, as well as a bay with the port of Korfakkan located to the north, providing an outlet to the Indian Ocean.
In addition, Fujairah has its own international airport that hosts civilian and military aircraft. Fujairah is considered the ideal resort for a relaxing, family holiday. At the same time, it is one of the best snorkeling spots. It is not for nothing that the Arabs themselves choose this particular emirate for their sea holidays. It is cozy and not crowded, the beaches are equipped with everything for practicing any kind of water sports and scuba diving, including night hunting.
A significant part of Fujairah's territory is occupied by mountains, which gives this resort a unique beauty. The road from Daid through the mountains to Fujairah is especially picturesque. It passes over Mount Hajar, through the Masafi pass and below Wadi Ham to the coast, and then approaches the city. If you follow this road, you can see one of the most picturesque forts in the country in the village of Bitna, which is located in a palm valley. In the stone village of Wadi Dafta, you can see the remains of another destroyed fort.
The modern city of Fujairah stretches along the coast. It is a city with wide, spacious streets, decorated with fountains and numerous sculptures. Among the modern residential areas, the Trade Center tower stands out. A little further away is the bay, which, together with the port of Khor Fakkan located to the north, provides the country with direct access to the Indian Ocean. As a rule, tourists come here in winter, as Fujairah is, first of all, a place for a beach holiday.
Fujairah is fenced off from other emirates by low rocky mountains, crossed by an excellent highway. There is no oil of its own, and nevertheless, the city has luxurious multi-storey buildings that are not inferior in beauty to the skyscrapers of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The National Bank, the International Commercial Center, and the Plaza Hotel sparkle with colored glass on the main street. However, apart from the new microdistrict, Fujairah is "undersized", with two-story office buildings and small mansions. The international airport is adjacent to almost the central quarters. Buses run directly to Dubai.
The monumental sculpture of the city - a bronze eagle, a huge coffee pot, an incense burner - resembles Saudi Jeddah. The beautiful sandy beaches and the absence of environmental problems make the city attractive for those who would like to leisurely wander along the green embankment, look at the picturesque ruins of old Fujairah, explore the ancient fortress, and admire the fishing boats going out to fish in the ocean. The climate is better here than in other emirates. It is a nodal seaport, a "sea station" for transit flights. Here, as in the Jebel Ali port in Dubai, a "free zone" for business has been created.
