A really nice place, but the opening time is only between 9a.m.-12. From this place there is a nice view to the sea and the palm trees.

About a hours drive from Ras Al Khaimah, the oldest mosque in UAE is a small mud and stone structure with small decorative windows. The small prayer hall hosts daily prayers and tourists should take this into consideration when entering.

Said to be the oldest mosque in the UAE, it is quite picturesque and stands right below a fort with a wonderful view. Right on your way to Al Aqqah too, so dead handy. If you want to get into the mosque, you need to cover up and be there before noon.

This was a very nice experience. The road leading up to it was smooth and scenic. This is the perfect location to come and watch the sunset so plan your trip accordingly. The view is beautiful.

More than 550 years old (though renovated now). Historical and atmospheric. Nice and friendly priest (Bangladeshi) inside the Mosque Do climb up the stairs to the two towers. The higher tower has great views and was breezy. Overall a very nice visit - A 'must visit' attraction in Fujairah!

Oldest mosque in the UAE. Unique structure and the fort behind the mosque offers great view of the ocean. Worth a visit.
