Stunning new ‘flying saucer’ attraction to open in Khorfakkan at 580 metres above sea level

Looking down from a mountain in Khorfakkan, the Al Suhub Rest House might look like a ‘flying saucer’ but it’s actually a stunning new tourist hot-spot.

And perched at 580m above sea level, the flying saucer building offers stunning 360 degree views across the UAE.

Al Suhub Rest House is due to open this Eid. and as well as the amazing views it will have water fountains, a restaurant and plenty of benches to stop and take in the views.

And be prepared to stop on the drive on the way up for a few photos. The 6km purpose-built road leading to Al Suhub Rest House is full of switchbacks and jaw-dropping views over the coastline. Check out the video below to see it in action.

Khorfakkan is on the East coast and a short drive from Fujairah. And with the high elevation and cooler East coast weather, it could be the perfect spot for a day out or staycation this Eid.
