One of the delights of living in Fujairah is the proximity to several great beaches.
A favourite beach of many is Khor Kalba beach which is in the emirate of Sharjah and only a 20 minute drive from Fujairah’s main street.
For walkers it offers a lengthy stretch all the way down to the Omani border.
For beachcombers, there are always shells, anchors and drift wood to discover.
For fishing enthusiasts, there are always displays by Bengali fishermen, catches being placed in the back of a jeep or sardines being dried on the sand.
For photographers, there are sensational sunrises and sunsets.
For the wistful, there’s an expansive sea and vista over which to look and hope.
For those tired of people, the beach offers ample solitary spaces.
For children wanting a swing or a climb, there’s a good playground.
For conservationists, there’s an important mangrove estuary and flocks of migratory birds throughout the year.
For campers, there are free places to erect your tent and cook your fish only metres from the tide.
For swimmers, this is a spacious and safe beach with the odd stingray, snake or jellyfish around to keep you on the alert.
But don’t tell anyone about Khor Kalba, one of the best beaches in the Emirates. Too many visitors would spoil it!
