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.
