Umbrella Beach, an ambitious tourism project now underway on the eastern coast of the UAE, appears set to put the Emirate of Fujairah on the international tourism map. Construction is set to begin later this year, and the first phase will consist of at least 15 storefronts, followed by upscale retail outlets, restaurants, and other tourist attractions.
As one of the UAE’s smallest emirates, Fujairah is often overlooked by tourists and visitors to the country, says project manager Abdullah Taleb. The Umbrella Beach project aims to change this by drawing attention to Fujairah’s vast tourism potential, including its striking modernity, impressive work ethic, and breathtaking natural beauty.”
Umbrella Beach is located on the corniche of Fujairah, offering access to the spectacular beaches along the Gulf of Oman. Featuring an all-in-one leisure experience, the project is spearheaded by prestigious brands and developers relentlessly aiming to turn Fujairah into a world-class travel and shopping destination.
In addition to high-end retailers, restaurants, and cafes, Umbrella Beach will ultimately feature a drive-in cinema, wall-climbing area, basketball/volleyball courts, and jogging trails, along with recreational spaces for children and adults. Visitors will also be able to enjoy a multitude of beachside activities, including watersports, jet skiing, parasailing, and more.
Abdullah Taleb says umbrella beach will have something for everyone, regardless of age, nationality or background. “In addition to the local visitors from Fujairah and the neighbouring Emirate of Sharjah, we hope to attract tourists from around the globe.”
This year, the project will launch later, combining its prime seaside location with a host of dynamic business ventures to become the UAE’s leading commercial centre and a top family-oriented holiday spot all year round.
“Umbrella Beach will serve as a signal to the world that the Emirate of Fujairah is a viable and attractive vacation venue,” Taleb says, “and that tourism in the UAE is about more than just Dubai and Abu Dhabi.”
