Welcome to Al Aqah
Al Aqah (pronounced 'al-aka') is Fujairah emirate's sun-worshipper haven with its golden-sand beaches flanked by a smattering of high-end resorts devoted to seaside relaxation. Waters are generally calm and temperatures pleasant even in winter, making this prime swimming and snorkelling territory. The area is pegged for plenty of further development with construction on 'The Address', a luxury resort and villa complex, already in the works at the southern end of town.
Just offshore is Snoopy Island, named by some clever soul who thought the shape of this rocky outcrop about 100m off the coast resembled the Peanuts cartoon character sleeping atop his doghouse (it doesn't).
