InterContinental Fujairah Resort
For a rejuvenating start to your day, we recommend a morning jog on the beach. Early morning, you’ll pass by the local fishermen getting their catch of the day. After your exercise, revel in the abundant choice of our international buffet at Nama Restaurant for your breakfast, after which you can set sail with our Captain, who will take you on a voyage from our private beach. An incredible experience and a great vantage point to view the resort! The skipper will set off to show you Snoopy Island, a rocky marine outcrop about 100 meters offshore from Al Aqah Beach. You will have the opportunity to embark on one of the most famous activities in the area: Scuba diving or snorkeling, exploring the vibrant underwater life in the area.
After lunch, we highly recommend exploring the city of Fujairah, where you can visit historical sites such as the Fujairah Museum - our personal favorite! The museum houses a great collection of artifacts dating from the early Bronze Age. Spend your time wandering around the historical part of the city and conclude your afternoon by visiting the iconic Fujairah Fort. Built in 1670, it is considered the oldest fort in the United Arab Emirates.
As the sun begins to set, head down to one of Fujairah’s major landmarks, the iconic Sheikh Zayed Mosque. It is a beautiful structure and a must-see right after sunset! We personally love the lighting features that illuminate this majestic mosque. On your way back to the Resort, stop by Al Bidyah Mosque, the oldest extant mosque in the United Arab Emirates. Once you reach the Resort, meet me and the team with a final touch of magic to end your day! Join us to enjoy al fresco dining at DRiFT Seafood Kitchen & Bar with delectable cocktails and succulent dishes to delight your palate, all with the most amazing ocean views!
