The history of UAE is not very much visible everywhere and there are very few places across the country where you can find something old, Bidya Mosque being one of them. It's a small mosque with some unique architectural traits, full of people after 4PM every day. I recommend going there in morning when no one is there and you... More

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.

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.
