Weekend Getaway / Trip to Fujairah from Dubai
NEAREST INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT – Fujairah Airport in the city and Dubai International Airpot.
BY ROAD – Driving to Fujairah from Dubai takes around 2 hours 42 minutes. This drive is very picturesque due to the mountainous route and beautiful views of Hajar mountains.
The roads of UAE are very smooth, safe and well maintained. There are some villages in between where there are Friday markets on the roadside for stopovers. You can buy fresh fruits directly from the farms, palm trees handicrafts, and Persian carpets from local people/vendors.
There are many luxurious beach resorts along the coastline of Fujairah. We chose Le Méridien Al Aqah Beach Resort for our stay.
Always check the deals on Groupon/Entertainer and other travel sites for best plans and rates.We took the swimming pool facing room and there are some mountain facing rooms also. Fujairah is having rocky mountains on one side and beach on the other side.
