Travel Essentials

Fujairah is one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, and the only one of the seven that has a coastline solely on the Gulf of Oman and none on the Persian Gulf. Both visitors and residents have the opportunity to experience the welcoming and friendly nature of Arab culture. The influence of Islamic and Arab culture on its architecture, music, attire, cuisine and lifestyle are very prominent as well. Like anywhere else, respecting local traditions and practices allows you to enjoy the true essence of the host country, giving you a better travel experience.
Fujairah is roughly 2 hours by car from Dubai and the trip is on sealed roads throughout.
Hourly bus E700 runs between Dubai's Union Square station in Deira to central Fujairah in about two hours (Dh25). From Sharjah's Al Jubail station, bus 116 departs for Fujairah (Dh25) via Dhaid (Dh15) and Masafi (Dh20) every 60 minutes.
Taxis run from Fujairah (next to the old cinema) to Dubai and Sharjah. A shared taxi to downtown Dubai (Deira taxi stand) costs around $7 and they go as soon as the car is full. An unshared one costs about AED 170 but it depends on where you want to go in Dubai. Add another $15 if you want to go the Marina area where all the tourist hotels are. Beware - metered taxis from Dubai to Fujairah are twice the price.
Buses run regularly between Dubai and Fujairah (around one every hour during the day and evening); the cost is 25 Dhs one way (tickets to be bought from the ticket window before boarding).
The name of the currency in United Arab Emirates is the dirham (AED also commonly abbreviated to Dhs or DH). There are 100 fils in dirham. Notes come in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 100, 200, 500, and 1,000 dirhams. The writing on the front of the note is in Arabic while that on the reverse is English.
Credit cards: MasterCard, Visa and American Express are accepted at nearly all hotels, restaurants and shops.
ATMs: There are thousands of ATMs in Dubai. You'll find them at shopping malls, Metro Stations, most hotels, super markets, and many other public places.
Banks are open every morning, except for Fridays, and credit cards and traveller's checks are widely accepted.
Voltage is 240 AC at 50 cycles. Socket type is square three-pin 13 amp (as used in the UK)
No vaccinations are required for travel to Dubai. Healthcare in Fujairah is a mix of public and private systems. Local Emiratis can receive free treatment at any government hospital, but foreigners have to pay. The quality of healthcare is generally very high and visitors should have no problem obtaining appropriate treatment and advice either in a private clinic or, in case of an emergency, in a government hospital. Common medications and health products are available in local pharmacies, often without a prescription. Travel health insurance is advisable.
The attitude toward dress in UAE is relaxed, but visitors (men as well as women) should show respect for local culture and customs in public places by avoiding excessively revealing clothing. In a nutshell whilst you are out in public you should have everything from your shoulders to knees covered. You should also not wear clothing that is too tight or see through.
Fujairah's beautiful Arabian coastline draws visitors from around the world who want to enjoy first class beaches and sparkling blue waters.
For visitors who want to get off their sun loungers and take the plunge into the Indian Ocean, Fujairah has no shortage of water sports opportunities. The warm, inviting waters are the perfect place to enjoy some world-class water sports.
Ain al-Madhab Hot Springs

Located in the foothills of the Hajar Mountains, outside Fujairah city, the Ain al-Madhab Hot Springs are a popular local retreat. The mineral springs here produce warm sulphuric water that is pumped into two swimming pools. There are separate bathing areas for males and females. It's a family-friendly place that gets packed on weekends.


Due to the topography of the area, the region around Fujairah is well known for its wadis. In Arabic, a wadi is essentially a dry riverbed (that can contain water after a heavy rain) but can also refer to any valley oasis. Wadi-bashing (four-wheel-driving or hiking through the wadis) is one of the major things to do during a visit. Among the most beautiful wadis in the areas are Wadi Siji, Wadi Saham and Wadi Mai. Wadi Ham is the longest valley and Wadi Al Tawain is fun to visit just as much for the stunning mountainous route it takes to reach it. North of Fujairah, Wadi al-Wuraya is also a main tourist attraction. Here you'll find waterfalls plummeting down to a beautiful pool, perfect for bathing.

Al-Bidyah Mosque

North of Fujairah city, the mud-brick Al-Bidyah Mosque is the oldest in the United Arab Emiratesand was named after the town that once surrounded it. The engineering features are a major accomplishment for the period of construction. The mosque consists of a prayer hall decorated with arches and featuring ventilation openings, and a mihrab (prayer niche pointing to Mecca). A central pillar divides the internal space into four squares of similar dimensions, covered by domed ceilings.
The site surrounding the mosque has been excavated to reveal that it has been inhabited for 4,000 years. A large Islamic graveyard just to the north contains a massive tomb dating back to the Iron Age, which when unearthed revealed fragments of pottery, metal arrowheads and other artefacts dating back to at least 1000 BC.

Kayak the Kalba

Fujairah's south coast is fringed by a network of waterways surrounded by mangroves that can be explored by canoe. A peaceful and serene environment, it's the perfect spot to reconnect with the natural world and catch a glimpse of crabs clinging to trees, rare white-collared kingfishers, herons and turtles. With the ancient rainforest canopy protecting you from the blaze of the sun, it's a great relaxing excursion. And if you tire of the paddling, you can always run aground on one of the secluded beaches and go for a rejuvenating dip in the sea. Desert Rangers (04 357 2233) can supply guides and all the equipment you'll need.

Break out the irons

If you're one of those people who like hitting small balls across vast landscaped lawns, you'll be pleased to know that Hatta Fort Hotel (04 809 9333) has golfers covered with a fantastic driving range. It's set against the backdrop of the magnificent Hajar Mountains, so you'll even have a nice vista when you're teeing off.

Shoot the fort

Thought to have been built in 1640, the mud-brick Fujairah Fort sits on the hill above the city, surrounded by date orchards and the remains of old buildings. Although the British damaged the fort in the early 1900s, it has now been restored and is definitely worth visiting to experience an original UAE landmark. If you want to step inside for a closer look, entry is free.

Hatta Heritage Village

With a settlement on the site between 20 and 30 centuries old, Hatta Heritage Village is considered one of the oldest sites of human habitation in the UAE. Around 30 mud and barasti-roofed buildings have been carefully restored: you'll get to see a majlis, a kitchen and bedrooms, offering a glimpse into the social routines of the Bedouin. There's even an opportunity for you to don traditional clothing and sample authentic food at the cafe?. Open Sat-Thu 8am-8pm; Fri 2pm-8pm. Right at the Hatta Fort roundabout (04 852 1374).


The waters around the UAE are rich in a variety of marine life. Dive sites are easily accessible and include wreck, deep water and reef dives. There are several specialists dive companies, who also provide training from beginner to instructor level.
