  • No proper road to go there. Its in the middle of no where. Main gate was open with a guard who does not bother to come out of his room. Fort gates are closed. You cant get in to see but you can take couple of photos from outside..
  • You will not find anyone other than yourself there. No security guard even.
  • It's ok kind of place
  • Really interesting place. Visit it by the way to Fujairah
  • Superb!

Where to stay in Fujairah

As town developing along with the rest of the United Arab Emirates, Fujairah has remained largely untouristed, so options for accommodations are not plentiful--still, it's possible to get by. Most hotel choices range in the four- to five-star category, designed for traveling business people with amenities like annexed nightclubs and other recreational activities. The budget-conscious tourist should anticipate a fairly consistent language barrier in most economical hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses within Fujairah, so be sure to pack a phrasebook. That aside, there are decent options in this range with comfortable, clean rooms.
