Snoopy Island, also called Snoopy Rock (because of the resemblance to the cartoon character Snoopy lying on his back) is a small rocky island off the northern coast of the Emirate of Fujairah (United Arab Emirates) on the Gulf of Oman. The Arabic name is derived from the coastal town of Al Aqah (العقة) and is thus Jazirat al-'Aqqa (جزيرة العقة). The common English name is also used in the Arabic spelling, Jazirat Snubi (جزيرة سنوبي). GeoNames has the name Jazīrat al Ghubbah (the Arabic equivalent would be Arabic: جزيرة الغبّة), which is otherwise also rarely used. On the nautical chart there is the entry Jaz al Ghubbah (19), where the number in brackets stands for the altitude in meters.

  • This island is quite far from the beach. Its really difficult to snorkel to there. We can have easy access only when you get in from snoopy beach dive centre. Its better to call the dive in centre the water is clear or not to dive. The best way is to spend the night at the hotel and early morning you can go for snorkelling and enjoy the beautiful reefs and fishes.
  • Amazing place for snorkeling, diving, and playing with kayaks.
