Found along the north-eastern coast of the United Arab Emirates, on the Arabian Peninsula that stabs into the warm waters of the Gulf of Oman, is the port town of Dibba. This small community has a maritime history stretching back to the pre-Islamic era of the 1st Century when eastern merchants would bring their exotic wares from the faraway lands of India and China to sell at the dockside markets.
The port of Dibba is located on the southern edge of the town’s bay, just beside the golden sands of Sambraid Beach. The ferry terminal here sits at the entrance of a narrow pier that curves along one edge of an inlet sheltered by a sea-wall. It’s a small area that offers very little in terms of facilities save for a departure point that allows passengers to board and disembark from the docked ferries. There is however a supermarket and café a few minutes’ walk away on the street outside the port.
Those driving to the port can make use of the pristine Dibba – Masafi roadway that carves through the rugged desert covering most of the region. The route passes through most of the settlements found on the country’s eastern coast and connects to the E88 motorway that snakes towards the ultra-modern metropolis of Dubai.
One operator currently operates from Dibba, travelling to three different destinations along the shores of the Gulf of Oman. The National Ferries Company offers short trips north to the Emirates towns of Lima and Khasab as well as a southbound journey to Shinas across the border in Oman.
