Al Bidya Mosque

Reviewed By ardeeyambao

This is the oldest mosque in the UAE, a 30 minutes drive from the city.. The mosque is easy to find and worth to visit.. There is no admission fee but you might consider wearing decent clothes when you visit.. The view at the top is amazing.. When we visited it’s gloomy but still is amazing..

Fujairah Historic Fort

Reviewed By Pervin D - Mumbai, India

When we visited this Fort, we were unable to have any guide or literature to understand the history of this place. However this fort is small and well kept with two towers and a prison place. When one is in Fujairah, this is one of the sightseeing places one can visit alongwith the Museum.

Al Hayl Castle

Reviewed By Pradeep A

It was a long drive from Dubai and a perfect weekend getaway
As it is high above the sea level there was wind and cooler than otherwise
The drive from Fujairah city to the castle was very good. You can take also your sedan without any problem and Google Maps helps you get there.
Do climb up the ladders to get to the top rooms.
There is nothing in there and all empty but place is maintained. No entry fee No provisions also available

Fujairah Museum

Reviewed By William J - Portsmouth, United Kingdom

Visited this museum with family in July 2017. The museum is set up in two parts and the first section has numerous artefacts on display including coins, stoneware, pottery and glassware the detail on which is impressive considering the dates some of it was created. The second part of the museum features recreations of traditional rooms and places such as a spice market together with cabinets displaying clothing items and some weapons. Our visit was quite quick, we spent an hour max in the museum. Very reasonable entry price at 5 AED per adult and the staff were helpful and confirmed that the fort was open (8:30 to 5:30ish) - we had not been able to locate this information online.

Snoopy Island

Reviewed By 88Georgina - United Arab Emirates

Me and my Husband were staying at the Sandy Beach resort which looks onto Snoopy Island. It is a busy beach and we saw a lot of water sports, especially at around 5-6pm. One afternoon we scuba dived around the island underwater. It was lovely with lots of fish life and pretty corals. It took us about 1 hour but we stopped to take photos. There is a mooring line from the beach you can use to help you navigate towards Snoopy Rock.
Overall the beach has lovely fine sand and clean seashore. When we arrived the sea was flat but there were some small waves a few days later.
If you are eating on the beach please take your litter away with you to keep this lovely beach clean. Thank you

Al Bithnah Fort

Reviewed By Soumya N - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The army was living in this fort many decades ago. It has a water storage area, a cellar to store the weapons & another cellar to jail the enemies. It's not a big fort & everything can be seen in about 10 minutes. There is a security guard at the gate, who opens the door when visitors arrive & also takes us around the fort.
This is not a must visit because there is nothing unique.

Dibba Society for Culture Arts and Theatre

Reviewed By liz d - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The site is well preserved, some of it has been rebuilt and some of it is as it was. There was a sign explaining the site's history. There is a museum in town which we didn't see which probably has some more information about the site.

Grand Sheikh Zayed Mosque

Reviewed By kbcanberra - Canberra

This is a huge beautifully-built modern mosque with magnificent domes, arches, and six towering minarettes. The mosque is set in an extensive open space that allows for easy carparking and walking around. It is a striking sight during the day, and at night is lit to impress.
We arrived for the sunset call to prayers and so enjoyed the song to the faithful and the photography as the sun set and the mosque's lighting transitioned.

Fujairah Heritage Village

Reviewed By Richard_Harpum - Doncaster, United Kingdom

My wife and I visited the Heritage Village during a visit to the Fujairah whilst on holiday in the UAE. The turnoff is next to the Sheikh’s Palace and is worth seeing just for the fabulous flowerbeds lining the route outside the palace. Regrettably, that’s about all that’s worth seeing.
Follow the signs to the Ain Al-Madhab Gardens and turn left at the Gardens (these are actually a huge children’s play area, so we decided to give them a miss).
The Heritage village is a modern mock-up built in 1997 that is supposed recreate the UAE’s recent past. Regrettably, everything is rather fake and it only took about 15 minutes to look around the rather uninspiring displays. Entry fee was AED 5 each but frankly was not really worth the effort of getting there. No wonder we were the only people there.
