    Fujairah is home to ancient forts and a plethora of beautiful beaches on the Gulf of Oman as opposed to the Arabian Gulf, making it perfect for snorkelling, scuba diving, and soaking up the sun. Fujairah holidays invite guests to tour the area’s archaeological sites, home to several significant discoveries. 

     

    Fujairah stands out from the arid desert planes with its skyline of mid-rises and office blocks. Fujairah City is at the rugged foothills of the Hajar Mountains and the rolling landscape gives way to the coastline. Fujairah emirate provides a more laid back option compared to the modern developments of Dubai.

     

    Fujairah is an ideal pick for solo travellers, couples, and families alike, with every type of visitor being welcomed into the many cultures and traditions that are practiced. Just as the captivating heritage is celebrated, so too is Fujairah’s fairly new found tourism industry and the entertainments and attractions found here are suitable for all age ranges to enjoy.

     

    Holidays to Fujairah entail a great variety of delicious dishes and local cuisine includes fresh seafood, seasonal fruit and veg, and lots of rice, bread, and chickpea accompaniments. Fujairah is a ‘dry’ country and alcohol is unavailable.  


    Fujairah holidays mean nearly year-round sunshine but visitors are advised to carry a light layer of clothing as many buildings are air-conditioned. When on their holiday to Fujairah visitors should remember that the UAE is a Muslim country and everyone should dress respectfully with shoulders and legs well covered.

    Fujairah Fort

     

     

    Fujairah Fort

    Fujairah Fort was built in 1670 and was damaged extensively when the British army attacked in the 20th century. It holds the title for most ancient fort in the UAE and has been used as a dwelling for past ruling families. Fujairah has been working hard on restoration works and Fujairah Fort is close to its former glory. There is a village surrounding the fort, set up by the Department of Archeology and Heritage of Fujairah, and guests can tour remakes of the ancient houses and agricultural tidbits that show what life would have been like.

    Al-Bidyah Mosque

     

    Al-Bidyah Mosque

    The Al-Bidyah Mosque is in the north of Fujairah and is rumoured to be the oldest mosque in the UAE. Keeping the namesake of the long disappeared town which used to surround it, the Al-Bidyah mosque has a fairly sophisticated infrastructure with proper ventilation and Al-Bidyah has many traditional features of Islamic architecture and has grommet patterned tiles, towering domed ceilings, and robust pillars support the interiors. Archaeologists have dated this tomb back easily 4,000 years searching for evidence of inhabitants and using a nearby tomb to conclude life here dates back as far as 1,000BC.

     
    Bitnah Fort

     

    Bitnah Fort

    Bitnah Fort is just 8 miles out of the city and is easily accessed from the city’s main highway. The fort is closely related to the Hajar Mountains and was built so the paths and the people crossing them could be watched over. Built in 1735 and honoured with great military importance for the time, this fort protected the eastern region of the United Arab Emirates and is iconic with its golden stone walls, blocky silhouette, and circular watchtower. Bitnah Fort overlooks the countryside, the Palm groves, and the Hajar Mountains themselves and is well worth the visit to the towers.

     
    Ain al-Madhab Hot Springs

     

     

    Ain al-Madhab Hot Springs

    Ain al-Madhab Hot Springs is just outside of the main city of Fujairah near the rolling beginnings of the Hajar Mountains. Locals and tourists alike will come to these hot springs and the mineral springs produce hot water and with added sulfur; known for its multitude of health and skin benefits. Men and women are given their own separate areas to bathe, in line with the UAE’s conservatism, and the hot springs are a family-friendly location. The weekends are a particularly busy time but this soothing and tranquil spot is not to be missed.
