The Emirate of Fujairah has witnessed remarkable growth in recent times in all aspects of social and economic activities. The tourism and hospitality sector also has grown by leaps and bounds.
Fujairah is mostly mountainous, covered by the Al Hajar Mountains which separates the emirate from the rest of the country. Fujairah is cooler than the rest of the UAE. It is popular for water sports like swimming, sailing, jet-skiing, fishing.
Along the road to Fujairah from Dubai, vendors and buyers thrive on the Friday Market. It is a good place to buy locally produced fruits and vegetables and other ethnic items such as pottery, rugs. Travel south passing the magnificently restored fort at Bithnah, one of the many forts and watchtowers that once protected these routes through the mountains, to the mainly low-lying Fujairah City.
