Khor-fakkan is a beautiful city and a gorgeous sanctuary surrounded by high mountains and calm beaches which attracts fans of offshore sports like surfing, diving and sailing boats. And for those who are just looking for a place to relax they can just lay down on the beach and enjoy the warmth of the sun.
The eastern island is just a few minutes away by boat and it’s the perfect place for camping fans. What makes it unique and a campers’ favorite is that it’s not widely known and it’s hidden between two mountains and near one of the hotels.
One of the famous landmarks is Alrafina dam, which lay in the midst of the mountains and is frequently visited by tourists to get the chance to see the village that was lost underwater and can be seen when the dam level is low.
Khor-fakkan has also a financial importance because it has one of the biggest ports in Sharjah. The port is filled with ships of all sizes including the big containers carriers.
Kor-fakkhan’s port is one of the most important maritime gates since it lay between Oman gulf and the Indian Ocean which made the maritime traffic flourish in the gulf area.
