What you'll do
Our guide will meet you at the port.
Enjoy the spectacular views offered by the pristine beaches and the rugged mountains of the east coast of Fujairah and Khor Fakkan, on the Gulf of Oman's shores.
The first place visited will be the Fujairah Museum and its fascinating collection of local archaeological objects, which includes exhibitions of coins used before the UAE formation in 1971.

This peculiar village-exhibition is designed to travel through time and learn more about the lives of its former inhabitants, including work tools, typical irrigation systems and other testimonies of their work many years ago.
