Reviews of beach vacations in Sharjah
In addition to the Muslim rules and laws of the country, the emirate has its own, stricter prohibitions. They concern the drinking of alcohol, the dress code on the beach and in the city. Here it is not accepted:
- sunbathing topless;
- appear on the shore in short bathing trunks and open swimsuits;
- to walk around town in shorts and overt dresses;
- Taking pictures of women, mosque interiors, and worshippers;
- showing affection in public.
Sharjah has public free beaches and private beaches owned by hotels. They are all covered with clean sand. The water entry is gentle and there are no potholes or rocks at the bottom. Where jet skis are allowed, the bathing areas are fenced off. On Mondays it is ladies’ day on the Emirate’s beaches, and no men are allowed in.
Between Dubai and Sharjah lies the popular Al Khan beach. It has its own lifeguard station, restaurants, cafes, stores and a playground for children. The lagoon is quiet and deserted on weekdays and in the mornings. But on weekends, so many locals come to the beach that it can be hard to find a free spot.
