Al Rabi Tower
At the top and bottom of the Al Rabi Tower, hikers have the opportunity to view Khorfakkan and its bay along with a stunning hiking trail. Khorfakkan’s tower is a historic monument that was built as part of a defense network in 1915, so it is a part of Khorfakkan’s history. This well-marked trail zigzags up 395m of a mountainside with panoramic views along the way with a well-marked route leading to a summit. Even though this trail is often referred to as a beginner’s hike, it is recommended you wear shoes that are designed to take on rough terrain, as well as bring plenty of water and snacks.
A major attraction of this town is Khorfakkan Beach, which is known all over the world. A thriving coral reef can be seen at Khorfakkan Beach, which is situated north of the town center, a testament to the efforts of the government to conserve the marine environment. For marine life enthusiasts, it has naturally become one of the most popular spots on the island.
Khorfakkan Artificial WaterFalls
The waterfall just right in front of the road was amazing to see, so we decided to park the car in front of Amphitheater and take a walk from there to Khorfakkan Waterfall, which is one of the most popular places in Khorfakkan. It is absolutely stunning! I am in awe of it!
Al Suhub Rest Area
The Khor Fakkan mountains offer a spectacular new hotspot with striking architecture that is sure to fascinate you. Buildings like this one are designed to resemble flying saucers due to their shape.
In addition to its circular shape, the structure has a diameter of 30 metres, which makes it one of a kind. There is almost 600 metres of elevation difference between the Al Suhub Rest House and the sea level. It is the perfect spot to soak in the views of the lush scenery from the mountaintop “cloud lounge” at the Rest House.
