Fujairah nestles with the Hajar Mountain range on one side, and the Gulf of Oman on the other. The Hajar Mountains act as a barrier between Fujairah and the other emirates of the UAE. Fujairah is an enchanting city - you’ll not find cleaner beaches and whiter sands anywhere else. Religion
Islam is the official religion, and the UAE culture revolves around Islam and traditional Arab culture. You can perceive the influence both Arab and Islamic culture in the food, attire, lifestyle, architecture and music in Fujairah.
The call to prayer goes out from the mosques five times a day. Muslims can settle down to pray at the mosques, or wherever they happen to be at that time. The weekend in the UAE is Friday-Saturday, instead of Saturday-Sunday as it is in the rest of the world, since Friday is a holy day to Muslims. Recreation
Many Fujairah residents travel either Dubai or Abu Dhabi for shopping and entertainment. The government has constructed highways that connect Fujairah by road to both these cities. People also enjoy visiting nearby towns and cities such as Dibba to explore the Wadis. Camping, hiking and trekking in the Hajar mountains are other favorite recreational activities.
Watersports have a certain charm for people in the UAE owing to the stifling heat. Jet skiing, windsurfing, swimming, waterskiing and diving are all very popular. Star hotels hire professional snorkeling and diving instructors, where people can train and obtain International Diving Licenses. Lifestyle
Fujairah’s lifestyle is relaxed and laidback. The hurry and bustle that one finds in Dubai and Abu Dhabi are absent here. Local transport options are still limited, so the only traffic on the roads will be taxis and private cars. Most locals wear the traditional Arabian garb with headdress, or business suits.
