Shark Island is located a short boat-ride away from Khorfakkan on Sharjah’s east coast. It lies just out in the bay, tucked behind the port at the southern end of the beach.
Off the coast of the Khorfakkan public beach, this small rocky island is an underwater marvel for everyone who enjoys snorkeling, scuba diving and swimming. Sea anemones and turtles are a treat for snorkellers, while divers flock here for the beautiful rock formations teeming with moray eels, rays and Arabian angelfish. If you prefer to stay on the surface, take a kayak out to spot schools of fish from above the clear waters.
