Approaching Fujairah by Ship

Flying Over Fujairah
I recently flew over Fujairah in a plane on a flight from Nepal. I was so glad of a window seat for I got an amazing aerial view of the Hajar Mountains. The rugged character of the ranges and some glimpses of mountain villages added to the remarkable scenery.

Passage to Fujairah
Another way that an increasing number of people come to Fujairah is by cruise ship.

If you Google ‘cruise ship, Fujairah’ you can get an idea of the various cruise lines that make a stop at our local port. Their marketing blurbs are way over the top but one of the things they remark on is the views of the Hajars from the Arabian Sea and the exquisite colors that change in the sunlight.
