About the Hike:

We are super excited to kick off this season with a Grasp The Adventure favorite. The hike to Khor Fakkan’s secret beach is moderately challenging but very rewarding. You’ll be overtaken with stunning views of both the city and the sea.

The hike is not technical and is suitable for first-time hikers who are looking to jumpstart their adventurous souls. That being said, we will be going through a mountain twice so being moderately fit is recommended.

The route will take us up an elevation gain of around 360 m, we will take our first break at the top to enjoy the views of the city and the sea. After a 10 minute break, we will be descending the mountain with a loss of 380 m. Now it is time to enjoy the beach! Whether you wanna go for a swim in the fresh waters of Fujairah, tan on the white sands or join us for a crazy, fun game of Ultimate Frisbee, laughs and positive vibes are guaranteed. Depending on the hike’s overall pace, we will spend around 2 hours at the beach. On the way back, we will ascend another 280 m, rest for 10 minutes and then back down towards the cars. The entire hike will take around 8 hours depending on the group’s pace.

Transportation:

4 Wheel Drives are not needed to get to the meeting point, location is accessible to absolutely any car. Please be at the following location at 8 AM sharp to avoid any delays:

Secret Beach Meeting Point Location

We wanna help you get there!

If you don’t have a way to get to the meeting point, let us know. We encourage car pools and will help sort them out. If you have a car and are willing to take some people onboard with you then you my friend, are a boss!  🙂

Food, Water & Snacks:

You should pack at least 3 liters of water for the hike, I cannot stress on this point enough. As for food, you’ll need some snacks to give you an energy boost during the climbs and a light lunch to have at the beach. Most importantly though… pack enough water!

Optional BBQ After the Hike:

I know this is the real reason you’re all joining the hike (if this is your first time joining us, you’ll know what I’m talking enough soon enough). After the hike is over, some people drive back to Dubai or Abu Dhabi but the majority of us choose to stay for a BBQ and bon fire (camping too depending on the weather and temperature). If you want to stay for the bbq, all you need to bring is your chair and a grill (can use others’ if you don’t have one) and whatever meat or veggies you’ll be cooking (you can keep them in my cooler during the hike)… OR, I also offer awesome, marinated (the GTA secret marinade), Australian Skirt Steak from La Carne, Abu Dhabi; it’ll be marinated the night before and kept in the cool box ready to grill after the hike. This is an all time favorite so contact me if you want to know more about how you can order some for yourself 😉
