Fujairah is the only Emirate of the UAE that is almost totally mountainous.
The Hajjar Mountains separate Fujairah from the rest of the country. The mountain range got its name from the Arabic word meaning “stone mountains”. They aren’t very high but on the way from the plain (200m) to Masafi (450m) and Diba Al Hisn (on the ocean coast) the road runs on the level 200-550 m between mountains which rise between 500m up to 990m (Jabal Dad Mountain - the highest mountain in the area). The road is very picturesque and you will see deep wadies (canyons) and huge rocks. Usually excursion buses make stops at the deep canyon which provides brilliant views at the mountain area.

A market, called the Masafi Friday Market or Souq al Juma, as it is known locally, even though it is open seven days a week, is found on the Dubai-Fujairah Road as you approach Masafi. The main items to bargain for are rugs, earthenware, antiques and souvenirs.
This is a great place to buy carpets, mats, shrubs (from Afghanis and Pakistanis).
Despite its name, the market is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day of the week.

Al Fujairah is now what Dubai was a few years ago. It is a developing resort. In 1999 my wife and I were two of the few westerners there. Now there are many.
One 5 star hotel (Hilton) has become 4 with another 4 being built as you reas this. Visiting there now expect a far more relaxed way of life. Historical and natural features are the main things to see. It's museum, castle, the old fort at Dibnah (if you can find it! We tried, saw it but couldn't get to it), the old mosque at Badiyh near Khor Fahkan, the Mangrove swamps at Khor Kelba are a few places worthy of seeing.
Several archeological digs are in progress nearby with a couple at Masafi. Speaking of Masafi, hire a 4 wheel drive and go up into the Hajja mountains for a most peaceful experience.
Sit in one of the many coffee shops and watch the world and his wife go by. Take a drive north towards Dibba and RAK or go south to the desert city of Al Ain.
In Fujairah it is up to you to find things to do. In Dubai it is thrust upon you in shed loads, not so in Fujairah.

Every Friday afternoon at 4.30 the pickups roll in with bulls, ready to fight their bloodless duels without matador or banderillas. Fujairah is the only place in the UAE where you can find this unique "sport".

Near Fujairah there is this little island named snoopy for its shape!
The island is 100 mt from the beach and in front of the private beach of a Motel.
We were there for a day trip from Dubai, so we had the possiblity to rent the snorkel gear from the MOtel beach shop: we did the round trip of the island looking to a lot of colored exotic fish on the coral reef.
It's not the red sea but is pretty...I hade the possibility to swim with a turtle fora while.

I stayed 3 days in Al Aqqa area, walking on the beach or waching the fisherman working, freeing the fishes that they cannot be eaten from the nets( turtle or arayas,....) to save them...the sea nature is strong but you can find some petroleum spots in the sand cause in Fujairah there is a oilport!!!
The nature preservation is becaming in Emirates but he way is longggggg!!!!
For example the hotels have to block the beaches with big stones because the national sports is to run with big 4 wheels car ( like the monster 'Hammer') on the beach or in the dunes....one days I was sunbathing and for an hours and half a big Hammer runned behiond us in the dunes only to jokes...probaly was a rented car from tourist but they are not used to the sand and they risked an accident....crazy!
