    Very good dives can be had from Fujairah. Now that I've been to Oman, I can say that the viz in Fujairah was much better. Masses of fish everywhere.I loved it and the water was very warm (27 to 32 celcius depending on depth in June, with a nasty thermocline!).Diving is much better than on the Gulf side (Dubai). The viz is approx 10 to 20 metres. I...

Reds are from iron, whites and pale tones are influenced by chalk, greens are influence by copper, etc.But I challenge you to identify the different shapes of...

    Muzayri` Things to Do

    There are about six forts along the 100km/60mi belt line of Liwa. None of them are well marked with signs on the roads, so you must have patience and know how to read a map.
