All this taken together – the sea and land, mountains and the coast, combined with beautiful weather almost all year round, give Fujairah a special advantage – excellent conditions for tourism. The emirate of Fujairah is located in the southeastern part of the Arabian Peninsula, its population is about 66,000 people. Here is a real expanse for all who are passionate about history. In the city of Fujairah, you can visit the ruins of an ancient fort and the surrounding settlement, now abandoned. Here you can visit the most interesting museum of archaeological settlements discovered near the neighboring towns of Kidf and Bitna. Archaeological excavations have revealed more than 40 separate sites with approximately 500 ancient burials of various types, as well as ancient buildings: majestic castles and small forts, observation towers, built for protection in almost every village. Dated a few centuries ago, they are almost completely preserved to this day. Moving from Fujairah along the coast to the north, you will find yourself in Korfakkan, Baddia and Dibbu – small pretty seaside towns. Close to Baddia, right next to the highway, the adobe Baddian mosque, which is considered the oldest mosque preserved in the emirates. Dibba is also known for the ancient Muslim cemetery, where, according to legend, the wars that brought Islam here in the 7th century AD are buried. However, Fujairah is not only an invitation to a rendezvous with history, it is a magnificent resort where diving enthusiasts will have unforgettable minutes alone with crystal clear water and a rich underwater world. In the city itself, the Tower of the Shopping Center stands out among the new modern residential neighborhoods. Being in the emirate of Fujairah, visit the Fredy Market, offering a huge selection of fruits, dishes, carpets. A little further is the bay, which, together with the port located to the north, provides the country with direct access to the Indian Ocean. Local residents earn a good living by fishing and farming, and the local port is developing dynamically. On the coast in winter you can watch picturesque scenes of fishing with a purse seine. This traditional fishing method is still very important for fishery communities on the east coast. In the past, dried fish was the main export item of the region. In the territory of Fujairah, wherever you are: high in the mountains or in the valleys (dried up beds of mountain rivers), in coastal palm groves or in fertile fields, you will certainly meet a rich wildlife. Especially after the rain, the mountains bloom violently with colorful paints. Trees and shrubs are in a hurry to give new shoots before the last moisture dries. As for wildlife, here, in the mountains of Fujairah, you can find a variety of Arabian gazelles, you can often meet wild goats, and the Arab leopard was last seen in 1992 on top of a mountain. Small river backwaters have many species of fish whose names are not even known, and river toads, whose croaking is sometimes the only sound for many kilometers. The territory along the coast, as well as the mountainous elevations of the east coast, are home to a wide variety of birds, constantly living and migrating here. On beaches and sandy bays you can sometimes find turtles. They lay eggs along the shore. They, as well as all other representatives of wildlife, are strictly protected by the law of the Ruler of the Emirate of Fujairah. The principality located on the shores of the Indian Ocean does not have the main source of wealth and prosperity for the UAE – its own oil. But despite this, Fujairah has its own international airport. Numerous fountains, sculptures with images of traditional coffee pots and cups complement the charm of this amazingly distinctive corner of the emirates. Fujairah – a real gem in a tourist necklace of the UAE – is located just two hours drive from the Emirate of Dubai. The provincial is cozy and calm in seaside hotels with their sandy beaches, superbly equipped with everything necessary for snorkeling and hunting, even at night. No wonder the Arabs themselves prefer Fujairah to other emirates for sea holidays.
