The city of Dibba lies on the Gulf of Oman, 40km southeast of Ras al Khaimah and 100km northeast of Dubai, adjacent to the border of Oman. Dibba is shared by two emirates (Fujairah and Sharjah) and Oman. The city has been settled since the second millenium BC, although no ancient structures are visible today. Dibba has a mediocre beach. The Omani part of it is the starting point of dhow cruises to Musandam. Along the coast south of Dibba there are a few beach resorts. The coastline is pleasant and attracts local Emiratis who come here for picnics in the fresh season.
