"Explore the mangroves of of Kalbah" Top 5 Page for this destination United Arab Emirates Off The Beaten Path Tip by Faiza-Ifrah

by Faiza-Ifrah

This is the northwestern tip of the UAE, about 150 kms from Dubai and 15 kms from Fujeirah. One can contact Desert Rangers at 04-346-0808 to arrange canoes for observing wildlife of the mangroves.

The tracks at the seaside are good for driving 4 wheelers, but do not get too close to the water for you will destroy the habitat.

From here, you can make two adventures. Either head for Hatta, a small town around 100 kms east of Dubai, located in the hills. Or you can head for Khorfakkan, 30 kms from here, another coastal town having unexlpoited beaches.
