Masafi

3.5
Masafi is a village located on the edge of the Hajar Mountains in the United Arab Emirates. It sits at the inland entrance of the Wadi Ham, which runs down to Fujairah. The border between the emirates of Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah runs through the town, which houses a barracks used by the UAE's Union Defence Force.Until relatively recently, with the construction of the Sharjah to Kalba road and the 'truck road' between Dibba and the 311 highway at Ras Al Khaimah, the road through Masafi was the only route from the interior to the East Coast of the UAE. The road from the inland town of Dhaid splits at Masafi, leading to Dibba to the North and Fujeirah to the South.A number of excavations point to Bronze Age habitation in Masafi, which has a recently restored (2012) stone and adobe fort, smaller but architecturally similar to that at nearby Al Bithnah, also restored as part of the same project. The fort encloses an exceptional example of a falaj, an underground waterway constructed to channel water from the mountains to the oasis towns of the interior.Masafi was the site of a rough airstrip used by the Trucial Oman Scouts.Water BottlingMasafi is a branded producer of bottled water, juices and other consumer goods. The company's 250,000 m² bottling plant is located in the northern part of the town, part of Ra's Al Khaimah. Capable of producing 90,000 bottles an hour, the plant produces the only bottled water in the UAE labelled as mineral water.
Masafi is in Emirate of Fujairah. Use our United Arab Emirates online itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Masafi and other destinations in United Arab Emirates.
