  • Great place to visit. Tarmac road leads to the fort. Helpful tour guide gives good knowledge on the history and use of each room. You are allowed to climb up to the roof of the main building and the watch tower. Amazing views. Climbing to roof might be tough for young or elderly.
  • Very nice place...I like to go winter season
  • You will love the drive to this place. Bit of the roads are damaged in between but the road is good otherwise. The view from the top is excellent. You will feel the trip was worth it.
  • Small castle/fort. Can see where the old generation live their life. The view of mountains surrounding is also nice.
  • It's a beautiful early 20th century stone and mud building

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.
