The new extension includes the opening of new Arabic and international outlets, some of which will open in Sharjah for the first time, but all of them providing a variety of premium hospitality services, and sharing an excellent reputation in the UAE and across the region. The new restaurants will promote Al Majaz Waterfront’s unique setting even further and provide visitors with high-end experiences in hospitality, tourism and leisure.

The list of the new restaurants includes Emirati ‘Al Fanar Restaurant & Café’, Lebanese ‘Levantine Restaurant’, Indian ‘Ushna Restaurant’ and Iranian ‘Anar Restaurant’. The cafés include the genuine Italian coffee bar tradition of ‘Illy Caffè’, ‘Amorino Gelato’ Ice-cream and Coffee shop, ‘Al Rawi’ library café – a literary and cultural café with many branches in the region, although this will be the first in the UAE, and a ‘Dunkin’ Donuts’ franchise.

“Al Majaz Waterfront has become one of the leading tourist and leisure attractions in Sharjah, differentiating itself by providing premium and luxury services and facilities, particularly hospitality.” said Ahmed Obaid Al Qaseer, COO of Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq).

“The selection of regional and international restaurants and cafés perfectly aligns with our strategy of increasing the number of visitors to Al Majaz Waterfront through increasing the number of their options. People of all nationalities visit the attraction, and this development caters to different tastes and preferences while achieving the highest levels of customer satisfaction,” he said.

Young Riders Prepare to Join the Breast Cancer Awareness Drive in the UAE

As anyone will agree, there is no better way to reduce the occurrence of breast cancer and mitigate the social taboos and suffering that come with it than sensitising future generations about the risks and remedies of cancer from an early age.


For the first time in the Pink Caravan Ride’s six-year history, young advocates of breast cancer awareness will participate in a 6-kilometre horse ride to mark the seventh edition of the campaign. Named the ‘Pink Caravan Children’s Ride’, this momentous event will take place on Friday, 10 March, at Desert Palm – Dubai, from 2:00pm to 5:00pm.

The event will also bring together young equestrians from Dubai Riding for the Disabled Institute, who will be showing their support to the cause by undertaking a professionally supervised 1.5-kilometre ride.

The event has been organised to join the voices of the youth with the Pink Caravan’s breast cancer drive in the nation, which has been working tirelessly to dispel the numerous myths that surround the disease, and has travelled the seven emirates providing free breast cancer screenings to 41,391 at 455 medical centres.

The event is open to both children and adults, participating with their own horses. All riders will need to pre-register via the online application form available at
