Snorkeling in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates

Broomtail Wrasse

Broomtail Wrasse

Snorkeling in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates, is good all year round. Beware that it gets ridiculously hot between May - October (45C/113F) and wearing a wetsuit while not in the sea makes it even worse.

From the beach, the best snorkeling is at Snoopy Island. The shortest way is to swim directly from the beach in front of the Sandy Beach Resort in front of Snoopy Island, but you'll need to pay. Otherwise you can swim the slightly longer distance from the neighboring public beaches.

I saw fish like the Broomtail Wrasse, Picasso Triggerfish, and Arabian Angelfish, pictured above while snorkeling Snoopy Island.

Every hotel on the coast will also offer boat trips to dive/snorkel. When going out farther in the sea with a boat, there are many lionfish, various triggerfish and clownfish to be seen. High chances of seeing blacktip reef sharks and turtles.
