#3 of 6 in Sightseeing in Emirate of Fujairah
Religious Site Tourist Spot
For a short history lesson, make a brief visit to Al Badiyah Mosque, a tiny, 53 sq m (570 sq ft) structure probably built in the 15th century. Admire the oldest mosque in the emirates, built with materials from the surrounding area, mainly stones covered in terracotta-colored mud. Non-Muslim visitors are free to take a look inside, as long as they wear suitable clothes and take off their shoes before entering.

Where to stay in Al Badiyah

Since tourists only stop in Al Badiyah for one attraction, the fishing village does not offer accommodations. If you have friends in the area or are skilled in Arabic, you may find a host for the night. Otherwise, stay in the nearby town of Fujairah, where hotels range from upscale suites with ocean views and Jacuzzis to run-down motel rooms at budget-friendly prices. Keep in mind the more expensive hotels will likely arrange a trip to Al Badiyah for you, so you can avoid the hassle of arranging transportation yourself.
