  • Must see place, Built around 1830, this well-preserved fort is tucked deep into the jagged Hajar Mountains near the village of Al Hayl, about 13km southwest of Fujairah. There’s usually a caretaker to show you around , you don't need a SUV or 4*4 to reach there, small car can take you there easily
  • Definitely a must visit if you have visitors. Fantastic scenery, lots of photo ops and a really helpful castle caretaker who takes time to show you around.
  • Highly recommended place to visit if you are in Fujairah. Stunning scene! Worth a visit despite the rough road on the way.
  • Awesome drive towrds the castle. The valley looks awesome , with agriculture in multilevels and a Palm Farm down the valley. En route a 50-100 road is rubbles with overrun wadi.
  • Its nice place. it's also a archeological place

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.
