[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dibba is a coastal region which lies at the north east of the UAE peninsula on the Gulf of Oman. The region is divided into 3 prominent parts namely Dibba Al-Baya ruled by the Sultanate of Oman, Dibba Al-Fujairah ruled by the emirate of Fujairah and Dibba Al-Hisn ruled by the emirate of Sharjah. The region is included in both Oman as well as UAE as it lies on the border of both these countries. Dibba Al-Fujairah is the largest out of the 3 towns and has a number of small villages and beaches. Dibba Al-Hisn is the smallest town and is well known for its fish market. Dibba Al-Baya has a harbor with boats available for hire. A number of land disputes between Dibba Al-Baya and Dibba Al-Hisn were resolved during the 1990s. In Oman, this large natural harbor is called as ‘Daba’; however in UAE it is called ‘Dibba’. The climate is mostly hot and humid throughout the year.

But at this time of our visit, we are lucky to have a Good weather w/ few clouds. Our group wake-up early in the morning around 3:00-3:30 am to leave Sharjah to go straight to Dibba Oman to share to you guys the hidden treasure of the place.
