Shark Island is located just offshore Khor Fakkan offering a great day or multiple day trip from shore. It is possible to spend the night on the island and visit the excellent white beaches which are great for snorkeling, diving and swimming. You can enjoy a great view after climbing the twenty meter hike to the top of the island. There are several dive sites near the island; Shark Drift, Coral Gardens and Anemone Gardens are just a few of the more famous ones. Blacktip reef sharks, cow-tail rays, turtles, honeycomb moray eels, puffers and batfish are very common inhabitants in the deep and shallow waters surrounding the island. It is a great destination and get-away from the touristic crowds of Khor Fakkan.
