Before anyone says anything, let me get this off my chest: the Fiat 500c Gucci is ADORABLE!!!! (but also manly)
And it has style, tons of style, in a little package – but I still drove from Al Ain to Fujairah, with family picnic bags, and beach stuff – and in comfort!
Check it out:
Also comes in white:
You know what!? Take two – one white and one black…
Maybe stop by a Sanaiya mechanic after purchase…
But, enough videos – I just wanted to really show you the Fiat 500c, because I believe it is a very misunderstood car. Is it fast enough to get to Fujairah? Yes, absolutely. In fact, I got my first speeding fine with a testdrive. Is it comfortable enough to drive all the way to Fujairah? Also yes, absolutely. And my daughter slept most of the way in the back.
The Fiat 500c by Gucci was in fact an extremely fun car to drive, and the fashionable loved it.
Al Aqah Beach is easily accessible by a regular sedan car, but somehow the fashionable preferred to stay in the car rather than lie on the beach like normal people do…
Myself, I love Al Aqah Beach – one of the best beaches in the UAE in my opinion: it’s the Copacabana of the East Coast! It’s alive with interesting activities, so it makes an excellent public beach destination.
There are still some stretches that are open to camping, as well; or you can choose from numerous hotel accommodation options.
Similarly, it is also one of the few open beaches left for fishermen to ply their trade and for families to set up tents and shade.
And as the sun lazily starts to set, the soft glow of dusk brings out the beauty of this Indian Ocean beach, and the soul goes mellow, and you reach for the hand of your companion, and all worries seem to fade away.
Al Aqah Beach is about a 90-minute drive from Dubai, and north of the city of Fujairah, along the coastal road.

And then in the evening, after a lovely day at the beach, time to jump back in your fashionable Fiat 500c by Gucci, and cruise home in style!
