One of the unique regions of the United Arab Emirates is Al Aqah beach, famous for its majestic shore of Indian Ocean, soft climate and beautiful mountains.

Being a part of the Emirate of Fujairah, Al Aqah is a popular destination for those who wish to escape the everyday stress of big city life, and experience waters of Indian Ocean, which are cooler, more energetic, and offer rich underwater life to witness. Water here is crystal clear most of the time, and it is easy to spot many different types of fish, jellyfish, turtles, rays, moray eels, puffer fish, sea cucumbers, starfish and other beautiful species, even dolphins and small sharks.

Sandy Beach Fujairah

In 1995, Al Aqah gained an official status of a marine reserve. The whole territory has an area of 0.71 square kilometers, including 400 meters in the ocean. This zone is specifically preserved in its natural form, which contributes to the development of fishing and scientific research of marine life, and, equally important, attracts many tourists from all over the world.


Both amateurs and professional divers find Al Aqah’s Sandy Beach, one of country’s most beautiful natural beaches, as one of the best options for a couple-of-days trip UAE can offer. They travel here on a regular basis to practice diving or snorkeling, relax and visit the famous Snoopy Island to grasp beautiful coral life. There are numerous diving centers along the coast, and many organized tours of diving and freediving enthusiasts from other emirates come here.

There are several active hotels situated on the beach of Al Aqah, each with it’s own set of offers, all for relatively affordable price range. Visitors are also free to find a good spot on the shore and assemble a tent for yourself to stay there overnight. Camping in Al Aqah is totally fine with the authorities, as long as you don’t forget to clean the area before you leave.

Al Aqah is one of the most popular areas of both Fujairah, and UAE as a whole, where residents and tourists from all over the world come to indulge. The stunning beauty of its nature, cooler and softer climate, beautiful beaches, and an ocean with all its miracles and secrets – this is something that will long be remembered.
