Sharjah’s Emir inaugurates Khorfakkan Beach Project

Sunday, 15 December 2019, Emirate of Sharjah, UAE: His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, inaugurated the Khorfakkan Beach project, in the presence of HH Sheikha Bodour bint Sultan Al Qasimi, Chairperson of the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq), as well as a number of senior representatives from Sharjah’s state entities and project supervisors, including Shurooq’s Executive Chairman, HE Marwan bin Jassim Al Sarkal

This first-of-its-kind large scale redevelopment and redesigning project in the Eastern region of Sharjah was launched in October 2018 by Shurooq. The project has been developed with the support of a myriad of government entities in Sharjah.

During the inaugural festivities, His Highness The Emir of Sharjah, Sheikh Dr. Sultan III Al Qasimi was given a detailed account of the project and its facilities. The AED 95 million project aligns with Shurooq’s strategy to integrate tourism and family destinations across the emirate of Sharjah, enhance the touristic appeal of Khorfakkan city and Sharjah’s east coast in general, and generate new business and investment interest in the area.

With the opening of the Khorfakkan Beach project, visitors can have direct access to the new beach experience through the recently launched 89 km Sharjah-Khorfakkan highway, which has cut down travelling time between the two cities to 45 minutes.

Founded in 2009, Shurooq aims to achieve social, cultural, environmental and economic development on the basis of Sharjah’s distinct Arab and Islamic culture and to seamlessly add to the fabric of the emirate. It strives to develop the emirate and encourage investment by adopting the best international standards in providing high-end services that help draw local, regional and international investment.
