If you wish to absorb a little of the local flavor the township of Fujairah is round the corner. Home to many exotic species of fish, the coral reefs off the coast offer divers and snorkelers the ultimate underwater experience. The town's beautifully clean shell covered beaches are an idyllic setting for sun worshippers in search of peace and relaxation.
Fujairah enjoys a rich cultural tradition and a recorded history of over 2,000 years. The Al Bidya Mosque is over 400 years old and is a unique example of engineering for the time. Fujairah also boasts some of the most important archeological finds in the Arabian Gulf – excavations have shown that man's presence in the region dates back to the Iron Age.
