Overview

Escape from the city and spend a day discovering the highlights of the United Arab Emirates East Coast with a private guide! The action-packed day trip includes a visit to the fishing village of Dibba as well as visits to the larger port towns of Khor Fakkan and Fujairah. See and learn about historical landmarks such as Badiyah Mosque, Fujairah Fort and the Friday Market in Masafi, and enjoy free time for a refreshing dip in the sun-drenched Indian Ocean, too.

Know More about this tour

Start your day with a hotel pickup from central Dubai, and then travel out of the city to the sunny UAE East Coast. Some 81 miles (130km) east of Dubai, the region draws out-of-towners and locals alike who come to visit its unspoiled beaches and secluded seaside towns.

Your first stop is Dibba, a sleepy fishing village near Oman. Stretch your legs on a stroll around the harbor, watching local fisherman sort their hauls, and then continue along the coastal roads. Pass some of the regions top beaches, and then stop to sunbathe either at a public beach or at Sandy Beach Hotel and Resort; just let your guide know your preference on the day. An entrance fee is charged for Sandy Beach Hotel and Resort, but its pool and beach facilities plus a complimentary buffet make the expense worthwhile.

Meet back up with your guide and travel onward to Badiyah, a town known for its beautiful mosque. One of the UAEs oldest places of worship, Badiyah Mosque traces its roots to around the 15th century. Stop outside for photos outside the unassuming mud-brick mosque, and learn about its watchtower that overlooks the pounding ocean waves.

A short distance from Badiyah lies the busy port town of Khor Fakkan, so head there next for a waterfront stroll. Leafy palm trees and lush gardens are prominent in Khor Fakkan, cutting a pleasant contrast with the dry, sweeping landscape that borders the coastline. Travel through Murbah village, and then stop in Fujairah: the largest of the east coasts towns.

The towns claim to fame is Fujairah Fort, and youll walk around the landmark with your guide to take photos and get acquainted with its history. The impressive 17th-century fort was badly damaged by a British bombardment in the early 20th century, but has now been restored to its former glory.

After your photo stop at Fujairah Fort, hop back inside your minivan, and then head back to Dubai. Stop to browse the wares at the Friday Market in Masafi, and shop for souvenir Emirati pottery or rugs, if you wish. Your day trip then finishes with a drop-off at your Dubai hotel in the early evening.

    Loved our guide - very informative. We saw other things than skyscrapers. Lunch was very nice. He was very flexible with our shopping time. And, also actually took us to the gold souk when we returned to Dubai. I would highly recommend this trip.

    This was a private tour of the East Coast of Dubai. The guide and the driver were both courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. The tour entailed a drive through the city of Sharjah and then a visit to the Friday Market at Masafi. Here we saw various handicrafts on sale and savored some fresh oranges and coconut water. The mountainous terrain of Fujairah was beautiful, as also were the large number of oases, both man-made and natural, that fell on the way. All types of scenery, mountains, deep valleys, sea, oases, fell on the way and I was able to capture some of it on celluloid. At Dibba, the sight of the sea near the Fish Market, with large number of lovely boats and ships anchored, was breathtaking. I regretted having purchased dates from Dubai, as fresh dates of very good quality were available in the shop here as well as in the Friday Market. We also had a good look at the historic Baidiyah Mosque and the Fujairah Fort bounded by the sea and excavations of ancient sites. We had delicious Lebanese food at a small restaurant in Khor Fakkan offering beautiful views of the sea and of palm trees. On way back, the guide showed me the large cylindrical tanks at Fujairah where oil delivered through underground pipes from Abu Dhabi is stored for supply not only to UAE but also to foreign lands like Japan. It was altogether a most enjoyable and memorable trip.
