Khor: watercourse, ravine. Khor Fakkan, which means “Creek of Two Jaws”
Khor Fakkan, located along the Gulf of Oman, belongs to the emirate of Sharjah but is geographically surrounded by the emirate of Fujairah. It is the site of Khor Fakkan Container Terminal, the only natural deep-sea port in the region and one of the major container ports in the Emirates.
There was not very much to see, but we enjoyed a walk to town along the attractive corniche . Back on board, we took in a birds-eye view of the activity in the container port where containers were being shuffled around and placed on a couple of ships as though they were dominoes!
