This 3-kilometre crescent-shaped beach hosts endless choices for fun in the water, from fishing and diving to parasailing and kayaking. It is one of the most popular Sharjah tourist places and weekend getaways in the UAE, with activities for every kind of traveller. Locals love to take a day trip here for a pleasant change from Sharjah weather. Lined with palm trees and facing glittering waters, the sand makes a great playground for adults and children with swing sets and football goalposts. Don’t forget to take a ball with you. Activity outside is ideal in breezy Khorfakkan weather.
Explore the water with a relaxing swim or with boat and jet ski rentals, available in the huts near the centre of the corniche. Deeper into the water, there are several fishing spots to make a big catch. You can also choose from sailing, scuba diving, or snorkeling near Shark Island, which is just a short boat ride from the beach.
