Journey from Al Ain to Fujairah

Here is my first draft of an article to show you what the car journey looks like from Al Ain to Fujairah. It takes about 3 hours to get to the beach hotels there like Al Aqah Beach Resort (our favourite), Sandy Beach, etc.

If you have a Garmin satellite navigation device, or the Tom-Tom app on your iPhone, enter N 25°30′ E56°21′ to be directed to Al Aqah Beach Resort, which is metres away from the other hotels on this short strip of beach.

I don’t know how much use this will be to you, but it does show the kind of scenery along the way.
