The Khorfakkan Amphitheatre is a prominent artistic addition to the cultural landmarks in Sharjah. The building of the amphitheatre, which is the largest development project in the city, is located at the foot of “Al Sayed” mountain facing the beach of the city of Khorfakkan, allowing visitors to see the natural side of the city.

It is unique in its design that accommodates 3,600 individuals, and includes a cooling system that ensures the efficiency of use throughout the year by visitors.
