Stretching out all the way from Kalba to Khor Fakkan, the Corniche Road is a very popular tourist spot in Fujairah. The road is surrounded by the mountains on one side and with calm, blue waters on the other, making for a sight to behold. The road is popular for its parks, beaches, playgrounds and restaurants at every turn.
The road eventually leads to a sandy strip of land, close to Café Maria and the Fujairah corniche. Every Friday at around 5:00 PM, large crowds gather here to watch the unique, local-sport of bull-butting. The gigantic bulls compete to push each other out of the marked circle, and the stronger one is declared the winner. The arena is protected by a fence, allowing the spectators to experience the traditional sport from a safe distance.
On the drive on the Corniche Road, one will also come across horse stables, a children's racing car track, a playground and a night souk (market).
