This is a fairly simple and functional fort. There are steep steps or a steep ramp to the entrance and more steps in the entryway. There is the typical open flat center. I had been grumbling about a lack of post cards at most of our stops. A young man stood with a basket of assorted items such as flags and a packet of post cards. Most welcome. The towers have fairly steep steps. However, they give you a good understanding of the tactical importance of the fort -- good views. There are other exhibits such as the houses which you will see on the left as you drove through the entry arch. We were on a tour and had no time for this. It looks interesting. No tour guides.

The place is open for public but you have to go on your own without any guidance. If you are man to visit just dedicate 1 hour maximum of your time

An old-fashioned fort, with interesting artifacts. Be prepared to climb some steep staircases. There is no cost to enter. One can get a feel of the living spaces of the Emirs from years past.

A free location to enjoy and easy to get to by taxi. It's a great way to start the tour of Fujairah is the fort. It's small and can be enjoyed for under 30 minutes. There are great views once you climb up of the old and the city skyscrapers rising from the horizon.

Fujairah Fort has been restored to working condition and its fascinating to see it rearing above the palm groves as it once did when Fujairah was an independent principality. The contrast between the ancient fort and nearby ruined village on the one hand, and the fast-encroaching skyline of modern Fujairah city on the other is stark and a reminder of how far the UAE has come in a single lifetime. The Fort is well worth seeing, though it rewards the imaginative traveller more than the prosaic one.

You can finish the site seeing within 20mins max. It is a small fort in Fujairah. You can access by bus or car to this place. No entrance fee is required. Visit anytime between 8am until 5pm except Friday (2.30pm until 4.30pm)! restrooms are available outside the fort. No food stalls are there.

No charge.. A short visit to look around. Just an empty fort and too hot to spend too much time.
No display. Also surrounding area had local buildings but none were open.

Fujairah Fort is situated only a few minutes’ drive from Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and a slice of Fujairah 16th Century history that should be on everyone’s to do list when visiting. Pretty much destroyed by the British Navy in 1925; the Fort was deserted for half a century until it was restored in the late 1990’s. I enjoyed the visit and learning about its history dating back to the early 1500’s.
