Fujairah - an Emirate that Brings Together the Beautiful and Fairy-Tale
It is Fujairah, with all its charm, stones, mosques and of course a business card by the sea.

Anyway, let me start from the beginning, after a light flight, about two and a half hours later I was at Sharjah Airport, from where I had to reach Fujairah by car in about two hours. Coming out of the airport was the first thing I was interested in when I would get cool as the temperature here was + 43-45, whatever the guy who was meeting me was Suleiman, the man who became my 1.30-hour road mate. Asking Suleiman what were the places of interest in Fujairah, after a long thought, Suleiman said, "There are no interesting places here, only the sea that is indescribable."

When we say Emirates we mean Dubai, which reminds us of high-rise buildings, swimming pools and just enjoyment, and here Fujairah is the only Emirate that has access to the Indian Ocean, you will not often see tall buildings here, but the art and architecture It will definitely delight.

Formerly Fujairah was part of the Sharjah emirate and only gained independence in 1953. The emirate is on the shores of the Gulf of Oman. Fujairah is famous for its sandy beaches and canyons, picturesque canyons, numerous mineral water springs and oasis, and it is one of the best places for diving. Due to its proximity to the Gulf of Oman, there is a mild and pleasant climate in Fujairah. Unlike the rest of the Emirates, hurricanes and steep declines are rare here.

For those who dream of diving but have not yet dared to wear a mask or scarf, they can fulfill their dream in Fujairah. There are some great courses for beginners that are completely safe. You will see a number of exotic fish, starfish and more.

Tourism in Fujairah is just developing, but it has a lot to offer tourists. All water sports, mountaineering, Arab culture, rest in the best hotels. The Emirates' maral reefs are attractive for swimming and diving.

Fujairah is famous for its magnificent sandy beaches; from which you can see the famous mountain island that resembles a dog. There is also a variety of cuisine, cozy cafes and small hotels surrounded by green palm trees.

Fujairah is an amazingly beautiful emirate, located on the shores of the Indian Ocean in the northeast of the country, an ideal holiday destination for those who prefer a passive and relaxing vacation.

Here you cannot pass indifferent to the mosque named after Sheikh Fayed with its splendor, and by far it is the second largest and the first is in Abu Dhabi.

Here you will often find his photos, posters and name.

Sheikh Fayed became the Emir of Abu Dhabi in 1966 and later served as UAE President for 38 years. During her tenure, the sheikh was re-elected for the seventh time in five years.

By the way, Fujairah is a great place for shopping. There are two big shopping centers: Fujairah city center and Fujairah Mall.

Anyway, if you are planning a vacation or just traveling, Fujairah is a pretty interesting way to enjoy good days in a warm country and why not make foreign friends.
