UAE East Coast Tour - Dubai -> Dibba -> Fujairah -> Dubai

Last Saturday I rented a car and did an East Cost Tour of UAE . The journey took me around 8 hours to complete - what I did was - get a map of UAE , bought some drinks and munchies , and drive away where ever i feel like it. My plan was to actually see the other part of UAE which lies along the Arabian Ocean instead of like Dubai where it is along the Persian Gulf ocean.

This is a special road off the highway leading up to a monument , about 40 km east of Dubai

Temperature was hitting 43 degrees celcius outside!

once i have reached Masafi ( east of dubai ) , I took the normal village road up north to Dibba. Here we can see nice mountain/ ridges and also dry riverbeds.

Once I've reached Dibba, I went down south toward Fujairah. Along the way , there's an old mosque (about 400-600 years old) called the Al-Bidyah mosque. This mosque is about the size of a typical master bedroom , and is built with stones and mudbricks.

if you walk up the hill after the mosque, you can see two watchtowers. Here is one of them.

This is the view from atop the watchtower, where you can see the Arabic Ocean.

On the way to Fujairah , I came across KhorKaban's Corniche Rd which has a strech of white sand on its side.Here you see a family going on a leisure boat that will take them around the the coast and also Fujairah freezone port.

Upon reaching Fujairah , I've drove west back to Dubai all tired and exhausted but satisfied after completing my East Coast Tour.
