Why You Should Visit Fujairah
There is so much more to Fujairah than being a quiet emirate nestled on the East Coast of the UAE.
As a picturesque town packed with a great deal of Emirati history, Fujairah is home to the oldest existing mosque in the UAE as well as forts and castles that are five centuries old.
Fujairah’s views of the mountains, the Gulf of Oman and the Indian Ocean provide visitors with a serene backdrop to their relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
As a good pick for incentive programmes, Fujairah is ideal for a combination of fun and relaxation: Stay three to four nights in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, where majority of the fast-paced, exciting activities will take place. Then, spend one to two nights in Fujairah to unwind and savour the breath-taking sceneries. An awesome way to cap a perfect programme, don’t you think?

Dhow Cruise with Dolphin Watching
When in Fujairah, a Dibba cruise is a must. On this trip, guests will be ushered in into amazing views of the Hajjar Mountains rising above the Indian Ocean, with a chance to spot some dolphins along the way.
From guests’ hotel in Fujairah hotel, a road trip through the Hajjar mountain range, toward the Bay Area will lead guests board a rustic, traditional dhow for a daytrip.
The cruise sails across the Indian Ocean, following the majestic Hajjar terrain and passing through caves that have been carved out of the mountain and some age-old, abandoned villages perched on the cliffs. During the trip, guests can bathe in the sun, go snorkeling, and enjoy a full, tasty Arabian lunch on board.
The Indian Ocean is also home to schools of dolphins. So, on a lucky day, guests can catch them twirling about in their natural habitat, swimming alongsidethe dhow.
We have always recommended this activity for groups. Whether you’re a group of 10 or 100, come join us in this cruise. This is ideal for a day trip that includes lunch.
