Tiny mosque on the coast road between Al Aqah & Fujairah. You need appropriate clothes to be able to enter inside. If not, you can stay outside and climb the stairs up to the top to get a nice viewpoint on the sea & hinterland....More

Visited this place before - its a hidden treasure in the UAE. Definitley worth a visit when in Fujairah... Its located quite far from Fujairah city... about 40 minutes drive along the coast.... but probably worth the drive.
