Slowly conquering each of the UAE’s seven emirates, we recently headed to Fujairah, number five on the list. While we had driven through the emirate before to head to Oman for diving, we heard good enough things about the underwater life on the East Coast to make it a true stop. We got a little of everything – downtown Fujairah where our hotel was, East Coast beach for diving, and the many miles of highways, desert and mountains in between.
And, we were not disappointed. With a brand new hotel room to spread out in, new (to us) forms of sea life to encounter like squid, a rockin’ Friday night at Lulu’s (think Wal-Mart but more crowded), and some quality Indian food, it was a weekend well spent!
