Visit Khor Kalba When You’re in Fujairah, UAE

Khor Kalba is one of my favorite places on the UAE’s east coast.

You can see from the collage (pictured), that there is a lovely walk alongside the water that looks across to the significant mangrove conservation area.

The majestic Hajar Mountains provide the perfect backdrop.

The early morning is a good time to visit, not only because it is cooler but because it is often still and the rising sun can work magnificent reflections on the water.

I took these pictures over 45 minutes and one can see the different light as it plays on the views.
