The most splendid part of the UAE is the east coast. Fujairah is currently the only emirate without any territory on the Gulf, but it dominates the east coast. It has an area of 1,166 km2 (450 ml2) and a population of around 152,000 inhabitants.
The city of Al Fujayrah boasts a heritage craft village and the United Arab Emirates' newest museum. Visitors can also drive out in the mountains to Bithna Oasis to view some of the extraordinary archaeological sites or take a scenic drive through the mountains to Dibba, a beautiful coastal town. Several tiny towns in the area, such as Khor Fakkan, are part of Sharjah Emirate. There is even a little enclave of Omani territory between Khor Fakkan and Fujairah (the youngest of the 7 emirates as until 1952 it was part of Sharjah).
The economy of Fujairah is based on subsidies and government grants distributed by Abu Dhabi's government (the seat of power in UAE). Local industries consist of stone crushing and mining. A revival in construction activity helped local industry. The flourishing free trade zone mimicks the success of Dubai Free Zone Authority, established around Jebel Ali Port.
Fujairah is also a minor bunkering port with big scale shipping operations that take place every day. Ship related services and shipping are city's thriving businesses. Due to the ease of logistic support and business friendly environment, ships that trade from Persian gulf anchor there for bunkers, repair, technical support, spares, stores and provisions before proceeding on long sailings. The city is geographically well suited for this kind of ship service related activities.
Highlights: Dibba, Badiyah, Bithna Oasis
