UAE Desert EXPLORER | Sharjah Big Red

Nothing is as glorious as pure desert sand with endless rolling sand dunes, and we’re lucky to be surrounded by this magical landscape on our doorstep here in the UAE. You don’t have to trek too far, to find swathes of these magical golden droplets of precious stone that will take your breath away!

Before moving to Dubai I had never seen a desert, so my preconceived notion was of an arid baron setting with little life and certainly not a place of beauty - how wrong was I was!

The desert is far from baron, in fact, its rich in animal and plant life but you just have to look a little closer to find it, and when you do, it’s a magical feat.

“What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

The UAE Is formed of 7 emirates: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras al Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al Quwain and within 6 months of moving here we had proudly visited all of them. Each emirate is unique even down to the sand colour and as an explorer in my heart, you will always find us on a weekend road trip in one of these amazing emirates!

Last weekend we spent our time exploring the Al Badayer area, affectionately referred to as the ‘big red’ located in the heart of the Sharjah desert with saffron-coloured endless dunes, this is a truly magical location.

Reminiscent of what I can only imagine mars to look like, the deep orange sand is a spectacular sight to behold and with our flask, packed lunch and camera we set off for a mini adventure and mini photoshoot.

Amongst the shade of the rock, we set up our blanket to enjoy our lunch and sat and watched the wild camel our our own safari.

I cannot rate getting out and exploring enough and recommend all my fellow expats to out of the city one weekend and go exploring the vast exciting desert.

Hope you enjoyed my visual post and please pin and comment below.
