The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) has announced the launch of a project to develop world-class facilities at Khorfakkan Beach.
The project will be carried out in two phases and will be implemented in cooperation with the Sharjah Directorate of Public Works and Khorfakkan Municipality.
The first phase covers the south side of the beach, and includes the construction of an amphitheatre, a walkway overlooking the beach, a skating rink, sport courts, picnic areas, and children's playing area.
There will also be restaurants, cafes, beachfront retail outlets and gardens that reflect Islamic architecture as well as showers, bathrooms and changing rooms facilities.
