Sharjah Tourism Travel Quiz

Soak up turquoise waters in the Gulf of Oman

Explore an over 7-kilometre stretch of shimmering sand and pristine water at the Kalba Beach. Tourists come here to relax while keeping an eye open for endangered wildlife. Located just off the Khor Kalba Conservation Reserve, a mangrove forest teeming with Sharjah wildlife, the beach is visited by rare animals and is an important nesting site for hawksbill turtles. It is also the only breeding place in the UAE for the endangered Arabian-collared kingfisher.

Scuba diving is one of the popular summer activities for kids and adults alike, with children especially enjoying the discovery of underwater wildlife. Distinctive from other tourist places in Sharjah, you are likely to see local fishermen trying to make a catch along the horizon of the Kalba Beach.

How to get there

Kalba, located 120km east of Sharjah city and around 12km south of Fujairah city, is Sharjah’s most southerly settlement before the border with Oman.
