Unspoiled beaches and secluded seaside towns are what make the UAE’s East Coast an offbeat yet popular outing. Leave the bustling city behind and soak up some sun on this road trip. A stark contrast to the glitzy and lively Emirates of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, the East Coast is where time moves at a slower pace and people looking for relaxation and seclusion often wander. The scenic drive from the skyscraper-heavy cityscapeto the rugged Hajar Mountains that dip down to long, sandy beaches is extraordinary as you see the landscape change drastically. Several archaeological sites, some dating back 4000 years, provide evidence of the coast’s long and turbulent history. A visit to Badiyah Mosque and Fujairah Fort followed by a refreshing dip in the inviting waters of the Indian Ocean is what sets the tone for a leisurely day. Chosen guided language available subject to minimal number of participants.
