Fujairah gets status of eco-friendly tourist destination

The United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) has officially awarded the Emirate of Fujairah the status of a sustainable and eco-friendly tourism destination.

The certificate was presented to the Fujairah Adventure Centre (FAC) on the sidelines of the 25th UNWTO meeting in Samarkand, Uzbekistan on 18 October, where the Park represented the emirate.

Amr Zein Eddin, Director of FAC, said: “This UNWTO accreditation emphasises the tremendous efforts and commitment of the Emirate of Fujairah to take a leadership position in all sectors, guided by the vision and directives of its wise leadership.”

“The tourism industry has long been a priority for the Emirate, with a strong focus on ensuring its sustainability. Our team at Fujairah Adventure Centre is proud to play its part in promoting the emirate globally by joining the exclusive ranks of UNWTO members,” added Zain Eddin.

The UN World Tourism Organisation’s accredited members include more than 500 companies, educational and research institutions, destinations and non-governmental organisations. UNWTO provide their members with a platform for dialogue, knowledge sharing and experience exchange to jointly promote the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Fujairah Adventures Centre is considered to be the first state-owned organisation established by royal decree of Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad Al Sharqi, Crown Prince of Fujairah.

The park is an obstacle maze spread over an area of 1,800 square metres where you can practice your skills on skateboards, BMX, roller skates, scooters, longboards, mountain bikes and balance bikes.

The park has a separate section for children, as well as trails for beginners, experienced and professional athletes.
