Fujairah is a small Emirate situated in the North-West coast of the United Arab Emirates facing the Arabian Sea. Compared to the other better known Emirates such as Abu Dhabi and Dubai, Fujairah is a backwater. The beaches are amazing, long golden sand, the coast has not been fully developed which makes the area very unspoilt, more like Oman than Dubai. Fujairah offers a tranquil classic beach resort holiday. The airport of arrival is Dubai International Airport and is now only 40 minutes away! The new Shaikh Khalifa highway (Highway 89) has now opened making it a more convenient transfer to Fujairah from Dubai taking just 40 minutes.
