As you drive south along the Fujairah corniche, just before you get to the roundabout that takes you towards Kalba, you will notice an appendage which has been growing out into the water for several months. Trucks have been dumping rocks there 24/7 and still the activity continues.
The sign declares that this specialized port is owned by Fujairah Bulk Shipping. Little information is available but it appears to be a rock exporting port, shipping Fujairah rocks from its quarries to countries such as Iran.
