“The Kalba Beach project brings great new value to Kalba city and to the tourist landscape of Sharjah’s eastern region in general. We paid special attention to the components in the project’s design for it to fit seamlessly into its rich and diverse natural surroundings We also allocated larger areas for the beach than the development itself to highlight the expansion of the beach in harmony with the overall project. Alongside offering visitors and tourists a new hub of leisure and entertainment in Kalba, the project seeks to promote local entrepreneurship by prioritizing the creation of business opportunities, particularly for the region’s youth.”

“We call on all those who are interested to communicate with us and present their business proposals to Shurooq. We will guide them with the selection of ideas that will best promote the touristic, economic and developmental landscape of Kalba whilst enabling a new crop of successful entrepreneurs to emerge in the region,” Mr. Al Qaseer further noted.

The Kalba Beach project construction will commence in the first quarter of 2023 and will be inaugurated in the first quarter of 2024, as per the statement.
