While we were in Dubai, my husband surprised me with a quick little beach getaway to Sheraton Sharjah Beach Resort. When I mean quick, I mean less than 24 hours. And by my outfit you can tell it was a surprise, these were the beachy-est clothes I could throw together. Here are links in case you want to shop the look.

Why go to Sharjah?
I have been visiting Dubai for many years, this year’s trip was a combination of visiting family and attending Dubai Modest Fashion Week. In all those years I had never thought to visit Sharjah, I mean we’re in Dubai why would I? Well, here are a couple reasons why I have changed my mind. One, it’s super close. It took us maybe twenty minutes to get there. That’s less time than it takes me to get from one side of Sugar Land to the other. Next, it’s significantly cheaper than Dubai. The whole city in general is less expensive, but I was shocked when my husband told me the price for our hotel – less than $150 a night!
Beautiful, Low Key Beach
The resort is perfect for families as well as people wanting less of the ‘see and be seen’ crowd. My husband and I had a relaxing oceanside breakfast and stroll along the beach. I kind of missed the kids, there is a shallow pool with a swim up bar full of kid friendly drinks and snacks. Next trip to Dubai we will definitely be visiting again and bringing the kids with us!
