East Coast tour is a unique experience for most of the tourists. It is a ‘must have’ kind of experience when you visit the wonderful land of Dubai. When you move ahead towards the east coast, there are scenic locations and lush green agriculture areas both sides. As soon as you cross through Al Dhaid, the surroundings change dramatically and it is hard to believe that you are in a country known for far-stretched desert.
Fantastic landscapes and spectacular mountains make it a greatly picturesque place and you can’t resist the temptation of capturing videos and snaps in the cameras. You will be heading to a lifetime memorable trip towards the east coast in a luxurious 4-wheel air-conditioned vehicle. It is a necessity in the UAE because of heat and tough terrains, and not a luxury. The journey takes around 7 hours and a great chance to feel the rural flavor of the UAE. Generally tour charges include guide service, but you can hire one if required.
Entire coastline has small traditional villages that take you to the good old days of childhood when everything was so simple and straightforward. You go via Masafi, a village famous for fresh water springs and move to a picturesque village Dibba. It is a village that brings spectacular view of the Indian Ocean and an opportunity to buy traditional stuff like pottery, carpets and handicrafts. Even if you do not buy anything, just spend a few minutes gazing at the canyon view. Dibba is also a local fishing harbor. Coastal tour brings an incredible view of the turquoise blue water of the Indian Ocean. Move ahead and see the famous Bidya Mosque, the oldest mosque of the country.
After lunch, you start the return journey via a different route. The old fort of Fujairah is included in the tour program because it is on the way. This ancient fort is elegant and spectacular.
