Madha

Madha is an exclave of Oman that is completely surrounded by the Fujairah emirate of the United Arab Emirates.

Understand

Madha has 2,500 inhabitants. Its borders were only agreed on in 1969 between the UAE and Oman. Though it is 75 km2 in size, people live only in the area called New Madha.

Get in

Madha is almost directly on the coastal road between the Musandam Peninsula and Muscat. Madha has an airport but no scheduled flights from Oman Air.

Get around

Madha is so small that walking is the obvious choice. Otherwise the main road will allow you to drive through the village in about five minutes.
