Khor Fakkan (also spelled as Khorfakkan, Khawr Fakkan or خورفكان in Arabic‎) is a city located on the Gulf of Oman, 30km south of Dibba and 25km north of Fujairah. It belongs to the emirate of Sharjah, but is surrounded by the emirate of Fujairah. The city has an important container port, the only deep sea water port. Khor Fakkan lies in a bay surrounded by mountains, and has a comfortable beach and a recreation area, frequently visited by Emiratis. The sea water is green, either due to pollution or due to sea algae. The area around Khor Fakkan has been settled since the 3rd millenium BC.
