Al Fujayrah - Snorkeling
Have you ever been to Al Fujayrah?
Fujairah holds a unique position in the UAE. It is the only emirate that lies on the eastern side of the UAE, along the Gulf of Oman, while other six emirates are along the Arabian Gulf. The Emirate derives its name from a spring of water located beneath one of the mountains. The Hajar mountain range that divides the UAE in two, from Ras Al Khaimah to Al Ain has kept Fujairah separated from the rest of the country. The historical importance of Fujairah dates back to the period before the birth of Christ. It was known in the old ages as the land of sea giants. The main cities and villages in Fujairah are Dibba, Murbeh, Qidfa, Al Bidiyah, Masafi and Al-Siji.
The Emirates of Fujairah is rich in archeological treasures some of which date back to about five centuries ago including castles, forts, towers and mosques. These forts and castles were used for defensive purposes in repelling invaders and maintaining the soil of the homeland and its identity
