I went umm al quwain today following the given coordinates and I saw that its far from the sea , then I went close to the sea to look for a good place for camping and fishing but there wasn't any . All the beach area was placed with no camping and no fishing boards , so please kindly tell me a good place where I can camp and do fishing . Thankyou

Based on the recommendation we found here, we went to Al Dhafra Beach, Abu Dhabi last weekend 31/01/14. However, I think that the “ Experts” must have gone to a different beach, as we found a totally different place when we arrived!

Upon arriving, we were stopped directly by an Al Dhafra Golf Links committee member demanding that we pay 100Dh per tent before they would allow us access to the track that leads to the beach. After a long discussion with them and looking at our alternative options, we finally agreed to pay for two tents rather than face turning back so late in the day.

Once we accessed the now very expensive campsite! We found a scene that is as far from the picture described above as it gets! The review describes “The water and scenery is incredibly beautiful and pristine, making this an ideal spot for some photography.” We found, a beach located between to industrial plants, completely littered in debris…1000s of bottles, Plastic, timber, foam, glass, metal…. You name it, or threw it in the sea and it’s there! So unless you like bottles and garbage strewn across the landscape, I would suggest leaving the camera at home. As far as wildlife goes, we took our kayak, nothing… not even a fish. Although, a few birds flew past! But even they must have thought it wasn’t worth landing for… Hahaha.

On the plus side, we made the most of it with our friends and the fire was burning all night thanks to the abundance of free timber on the beach. But we will never go down there again.

The picture used was not taken there. Not worth the journey at all. There are much nicer / cleaner places to camp throughout the UAE.
