Fujairah is the most Eastern Emirate in the UAE, located one hour East of Dubai International Airport on the coast of the Gulf of Oman. Fujairah is known for its beaches and the solitude and relaxation they present. Offshore activities include scuba diving and snorkeling and there are many beautiful sites for these available in the area.

Fujairah offers residents a laid back pace of life and is very popular destination for tourists and UAE residents alike. The climate in Fujairah is preferred to that of other Emirates because of the Hajar Mountains surrounding city.
