It is the oldest fort in the UAE, built in the 17th century and situated in the Northwest side of the old Fujairah village.

Water-sports at the Snoopy Island

There’s no end to adventure in Fujairah; and Snoopy Island is one of the most adventurous spots here. Situated just off the coast of Fujairah, it is a huge cartoon dog-shaped rock forming a coral reef teeming with sea life. Most of the visitors head to the island to indulge in world-class snorkelling, kayaking and scuba diving and explore its incredible marine life, including a variety of colourful fish and some sea turtles. Besides, the island is popular for its Sandy Beach Resort, set against the dramatic backdrop of Hajar Mountains.

The Region’s Oldest Mosque

About 50km north from the region’s centre, there’s a mosque called Al Baiyah Mosque, located in a small village. Believed to be over 500 years old, it is the oldest mosque in the city featuring stunning Bijou architecture. The construction date of the mosque is uncertain but it is estimated to be constructed in the 15th century. It is majorly known for its prayer hall that still holds daily prayers.

Beautiful Beaches

Sitting on the Gulf of Oman, the coast of Fujairah has a beautiful beach. It has a wonderful sea life scattered across some of the best beaches in the UAE including Dibba Beach, Sandy Beach and Al Aqah Beach. The beaches here are quieter than those in Dubai and the other Emirates, and present world-class snorkelling, scuba-diving and kayaking opportunities. There are many luxury hotels and resorts located on the beaches, offering visitors a luxurious holiday along with  thrilling beach fun.

Gorgeous Wadis

Owing to its unique geographical topography, Fujairah is home to many beautiful wadis serving as major tourist attractions. Wadi bashing and hiking through the water body are some of the ideal adventure opportunities in the city. While Wadi Ham is the longest valley in Fujairah, discovered by many tourists every year, Wadi Saham, Wadi Siji, Wadi AI Tawain and Wadi Mai are some other gorgeous wadis to explore here.
