The best place for snorkeling in the UAE
Fujairah is an amazing emirate located on the coast of the Gulf of Oman, 200 km from Dubai. It differs from Dubai and Abu Dhabi with its picturesque landscapes - here you can enjoy a unique combination of mountain ranges, palm trees and the sea surface. Those travelers who prefer to enjoy nature instead of the noisy modern metropolis will definitely like Fujairah snorkeling.
As you know, it is hard to find places for snorkeling and diving in the UAE, the underwater world of the Persian Gulf is rather monotonous. Fujairah is the only emirate where snorkeling and diving can be interesting. In addition to the beautiful landscapes, Fujairah is famous for its coral reef and underwater world near Snoopy Island and Shark Island.
