It was fan to experience the pedal boat ride with my family during our stay in Fujairah. It was summer but the weather is just perfect in the afternoon and we enjoy the Al Rafisah Dam boat riding.

It's a scenic place with great outdoor activities. Kayaking is best thing you can enjoy there. For families with children, there is two well equipped children play areas for children to enjoy the different swings. Very fun place with a parking space, mosque, restaurant and soft drinks kiosk. I highly recommend it.

Relaxing place to visit for free! Al Rafisah dam offers Kayaking, the dam, lounge, hilltop view, the side walk, play area and more! This place is small but very clean and well maintained. They have kayak and pedal boats (expensive comparing hatta charges - for unlimited). Fishing is not allowed and will be fined however you could feed the ducks there. Visit during evenings considering the climate now. If thats ok, reach in the morning itself! Other facilities include clean washrooms and prayer room, kids play area in good condition.

Major drawback is that since it is a small place, it is extremely crowded during weekends and evenings. Getting a parking could be a miracle!
In short, Nature at it's best!

It’s a beautiful place , to hang out with family friends. If you in Dubai and sharjah city you will love road trip passing mountain tunnels to reach this place.

Lovely landscape of lake which surrounds with mountains and trees.

Activities like boating , having lunch viewing lake and mountains. Kids have slides and playing area.

It’s beautiful Instagram place.

Easily approachable destination off the main road with ample parking.
There is a cafe, mosque, and kids' play area.
Walk down to the dam and there is nice sitting benching and then embark on the boats and kayak for a romantic tour of dam water.
The prices are also very reasonable.
Must go place if you are heading to Khor Fakaan.

This was a long drive from one Emirate to Khorfakkan, Sharjah. The Al Rafisa Dam is easily found on your GPS , it's a good drive to enjoy the scenic views of the dam and a drive away from the bustle of the city. It was a meeting point for me for one of my hikes.

The area has parking, toilets, play area for kids , prayer room and a good way to spend maybe a day out with kids and family

A good place to stop over. pretty small but beautiful place. Average time spend can be one hour in good weather. kayaking is over-priced compared to Hatta dam.

Not a destination. Just like a small lake with not much in terms of beauty. Really I was just totally underwhelmed.

Al Rafisah Dam which was originally built in 1980's is home to many natural scenic views beauty . With its lush greenery, lake ,waterfall & boating activities,this place will won't let you feel that you are in desert region.

There is also a mosque, kids play area, a mini supermarket, ice cream & a cafe with both indoor and outdoor seating area. A perfect picnic spot for winters. Though there is ample parking space but it's advisable to reach before 12 noon ( on weekends) to get a spot closer to the attraction.

Travel time from Sharjah to this place can be just 45-50 mins if you take the new highway.
