Beyond the beaches, there's fascinating culture and scenery waiting to be discovered
Step back in time
Take a day trip to the Fujairah Heritage Village which offers an insight into the lifestyle and traditions of local residents. Along with other ancient buildings, the village contains Fujairah Fortress, set on a high hill.
Markets and malls
Retail therapy is close at hand; modern shopping centres offer international brands and local fashions, while the Gold Souq provides more traditional wares - all a short taxi ride from many of the beach hotels.
Events for all
This small emirate is building a reputation for international events, so during a stay watch out for international Taekwondo championships, marathons, XCat powerboat championships - and more local events like traditional rowing and sword tournaments.
