Fujairah Holidays

Like a blurry blue-grey mirage, the hazy presence of the Hajar Mountains lingers in your peripheral vision throughout your holiday in Fujairah and often form the picture postcard back drop to your Middle East Holiday.

We love heading into the rocky terrain in a 4x4, stopping off at desert villages like Hatta; an oasis among rolling red sand dunes. Our favourite experience is a bumpy one; the unique sport of wadi bashing is your chance to off-road through dry riverbeds on a bone-shaking adventure. Enjoy your all inclusive resort and spend time relaxing and discovering the Gulf of Oman’s underwater world.

A Fujairah multi centre holiday is certainly easy. Tranquil beach resorts are within easy reach and only a two hour road transfer from the bright lights and desert metropolis of Dubai and only a three hour road transfer from Oman’s luxury resorts and rich history.

  • Sunbathing and Scuba Diving

    Rising out of the arid landscape as if it were part of it, the oldest fort in the UAE overlooks Fujairah from a hilltop perch edged by date gardens. The sand-coloured structure was built in 1670 and has been used as both a defensive building and a home for the city's ruling family. Explore the towers, halls, and the surrounding remains of old mud brick houses.

  • Ain Al Madhab Gardens

    Perfect for sun worshipping, Fujairah's golden shores drape themselves along the warm waters of the Gulf of Oman. Underwater, reefs and wrecks teem with marine life like bobbing seahorses, catfish and even green turtles, making this the best diving and snorkelling destination in the UAE.

  • Dubai

    In the foothills of the Hajar Mountains, these gardens are home to some of Fujairah's main attractions. Swim in spa pools fed by mineral springs, enjoy the park area, catch folkloric performances at the outdoor theatre, and visit the Heritage Village, where you can discover the traditional Emirati way of life through old houses, fishing boats, cookware and farming tools.

    “Only a short drive out of Dubai, Fujairah is a complete contrast. I love to spend a few days in Dubai and then head to Fujairah for a more relaxed break with a good book on the beach.”
