Fujairah and the Eastern Coast: Enjoying the Great Outdoors

One of the delights of the eastern emirates, especially in these cooler months (October through to March), is to explore and experience the great outdoors.

These are the months when the 4WDs come into their own and they can be seen up in the mountains and around the beaches.

These seem to be few laws or signs stopping campers from pitching their tent for the night.

The top photo on this posting gives an idea of the way people often camp on Kalba beach. This is an idyllic spot with the mangrove wetlands in the immediate background (300 metres away) and the glorious Hajar Mountains further in the distance.

The second shot is the view from the tent at dawn. This is a safe place for a swim before casting the line out to catch your breakfast. What the photos don’t convey is the gentle sound of the waves to lull you off to sleep and be the first sound that you hear in the morning.

It doesn’t get much better than this!
