The East Coast of the United Arab Emirates is a small section lying in between two regions of Oman, the Musandam Peninsula and the region surrounding Muscat. Towns that tourists might know in this area are Dibba, Khor Fakkan with its access to Shark Island, Kalba, Masafi and Fujairah. Fujairah is the fifth largest emirate, and one of the seven emirates that constitute the UAE. It is the only emirate located on the Gulf of Oman in the eastern end of the country, instead of the Persian Gulf. Fujairah is the only one which is not surrounded by deserts but by mountains making it a green village with a lot of farming opportunities.
The East Coast of the UAE boasts a 60-kilometre strip on the Arabian Sea coastline that is graced with the Hajar mountain range — that makes it a tourist haven and a must-see for every leisure traveler to the UAE. The Hajjar Mountains separate Fujairah from the rest of the country. The mountain range got its name from the Arabic word meaning stone mountains. The road is very picturesque and you will see deep wadis (canyons) and huge rocks. Usually excursion buses make stops at the deep canyon which provides brilliant views at the mountain area. Besides, you haven't seen the UAE without spending some time on its eastern coral reefs and brilliant beach islands.
The clean beaches and other water sports including diving, swimming, water surfing, yachting, deep sea fishing, dhow cruise all attract tourists throughout the year. Fujairah also portrays the glorious past of the UAE in its several museums that are quite popular and frequented by travelers. Wadis (meaning oasis in Arabic) are riverbeds containing water following heavy rain. Fujairah is renowned for its Wadis.
