Khorfakkan, UAE's Hidden Gem

Khorfakkan has grown popular in the last couple of years. Thanks to the Sharjah government's initiative to revive and redevelop this unique part of the city, we have new places to explore. Khorfakkan  means “Creek of Two Jaws”, and is an enclave of Sharjah, tucked into the emirate of Fujairah. It centers on Khorfakkan Bay, home to the curved Khorfakkan Beach and a deep-sea port. If you want to get the most out of Khorfakkan, I suggest dedicating a full day or two to it. Your Khorfakkan itinerary sightseeing must include Shees Park, Wadi Sheesh, Rafisa Dam, Al Miqsar Village, Al Rabi Tower (Al Rabi Hiking is optional, or do it the next/another day), Khorfakkan Park & Open Beach, Boat Trip to Shark Island, Khorfakkan Waterfall, Khorfakkan Amphitheater and Khorfakkan Fish Market. There is so much to see and do in this not-so-sleepy town. You wouldn't regret seeing Khorfakkan. The best time to go is from November to March when the weather is good. Places to visit in Khorfakkan
