Things to See When Visiting Sharjah

Sharjah is often referred to as the Arts Capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). With its many cultural attractions and rich history, it has become a popular destination for Islamic tourists.  Beautiful beaches, wildlife parks, a vibrant waterfront and many museums are just some of the highlights of the historic city. If you’re planning a visit to this beautiful emirate, there are a number of sites and attractions that should not be missed.  

Museums

There are so many museums in Sharjah that it would be hard to pick just one to visit. So be sure to allow plenty of time to explore the vast array of culture that awaits. Whether you’re interested in Art, Aviation, Calligraphy, Archaeology or Science, there is a museum in Sharjah for you. If you are trying to narrow down your choices, the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization and the Sharjah Arts Museum should not be missed.  

Beaches

Its location on the Arabian Gulf makes Sharjah an excellent destination for beautiful beaches. The popular Al Khan Beach is conveniently located near the historic area and offers plenty of activities for sports enthusiasts and sun lovers. The many outdoor activities available include water skiing, kayaking, parasailing, beach volleyball, boat rides and so much more! The surf school is one of the country’s best, teaching surfing and stand-up-paddleboarding to patrons of all ages. Al Mamzar Beach Park in nearby Dubai is a beautiful white sandy beach with clear blue waters, perfect for relaxing in the sun. If you prefer a walk along the waterfront, Buhaira Corniche offers plenty of greenspace as well as cafes and restaurants along a beautiful stretch of lake.

Al Majaz Waterfront

The Al Majaz Waterfront area is one of Sharjah’s top attractions. With multiple dining options, children’s play areas, musical fountains and an impressive laser show, there’s something at the waterfront for everyone.  A great place to spend the day with the family, or to get out with friends at night. While you’re visiting the waterfront, be sure to ride the world famous Eye of the Emirates Ferris wheel and take in the impressive views.  

Live Entertainment

Even though there is such rich culture and many related attractions, finding live entertainment in Sharjah can be a bit of a challenge.  There are only a few local spots that regularly offer live music.  The Al Dallah Lounge in the Hilton Sharjah hotel is known for its pleasant live entertainment and just a few minutes away in Ajman, 1897 Bar in the Keminski Hotel offers soothing live music. The Masrah Al Qasba Theatre is a spectacular venue to see live music, plays, dance performances and even comedy shows. If you’re looking for a wider selection of live entertainment options, you may have to venture to nearby Dubai. You can also visit sites like https://www.ifonly.com/music to find popular music in different cities.

The city also offers a wide selection of hotels and top quality restaurants. With so many great things to see and do, it’s no wonder Sharjah has become such a popular tourist destination.
