Take a quick break from the cityscape to views of the Arabian Gulf

Located in the Al Khan neighbourhood close to Sharjah city, this beach is a 600-metre strip of sand with dedicated area for swimming and water sports. For adventurers, the surf school here has activities like kayaking, parasailing, surfing and fly boarding. Those who prefer a more relaxed experience can lounge on the sand and enjoy Sharjah weather, wade in the water in the dedicated swimming area, take a ride on a banana boat or play some beach volleyball. There are also plenty of things to do with kids, including a playground with multiple slides for smaller children. The beach is one of the quick places to visit in Sharjah for a dose of natural views with friends and family.

Al Khan Beach is also one of the popular Sharjah tourist places, with two major attractions close by. In just a five minute walk from the beach, you can reach the Sharjah Maritime Museum and Sharjah Aquarium.
