Fujairah boasts a 90 kilometre coastline and is the only emirate situated entirely along the Gulf of Oman. 

Fujairah is a place of considerable natural beauty where jagged mountains and valleys sweep down to the settled palm-fringed coastal plain. There are some stunning beaches and good diving locations along the coast, whilst the hinterland features many cultural and historic sites. Agriculture and fishing, two traditional mainstays of the economy, still feature prominently.

Fujairah City 

Fujairah City, the capital, is not just an attractive town in a stunning setting: it is also a rapidly developing commercial and tourist centre. Its strategic location, which provides easy access to international shipping routes, has played a key role in its development as one of the world’s top oil-bunkering ports. The main business area is along Hamad bin Abdullah Rd, between the Fujairah Trade Centre and the coast.

Things to do in Fujairah

There are all kinds of things to do in Fujairah, especially for historians. They’ll love the old fort in Fujairah’s historic town. Visitors with an interest in archaeology would also like Fujairah. The small wind towers still standing in neighbouring villages are proud reminders of the town's recent past. However, archaeological activity has revealed that the human presence in the region actually dates back to the Iron Age. Some of the most important archaeological finds in the Arabian Gulf have been made in the area. The emirate also offers some fantastic diving opportunities if you’re wishing to get active.

Fujairah Fort

The old fort in Fujairah's historic town is thought to be around approximately 300 years old — although sources vary on this — and is potentially the oldest fort in the UAE. The fort has watchtowers facing the sea, the town and the mountains and also a main square-shaped tower. The building was constructed around a well, and the courtyard was used for special events.

Business in Fujairah 

Fujairah's economy is based around subsidies and Federal Government grants, distributed by the Government of Abu Dhabi (the seat of power in the U.A.E.). Local industry consists of cement, stone crushing and mining, which have witnessed a revival due to the high level of construction activity taking place in Dubai, the commercial powerhouse of the country.

Notably, there is a flourishing free trade zone mimicking the success of the Dubai Free Zone Authority which was established around Jebel Ali Port, the busiest seaport in the region since the 1980s. Of note is the Fujairah Free Zone, which is adjacent to the Port of Fujairah and provides businesses there with access to Arabian Gulf ports, the Red Sea and more. The zone is also close to Fujairah International Airport, which is approximately  1 hour and 30 minutes by car away from Fujairah city but just 15 minutes from the zone itself.
