Al Khan is a deserted coastal village south of Sharjah. Only a few old coral stone houses have survived the old settlement after the local residents abandoned the coastal village.
In 2011, archaeological finds of neolithic and medieval times were made at Al Khan. Curioulsy, it seemed that the tradition of using the shoreline of Al khan for mooring fishing boats and enjoying a cookout, had been kept up for thousands of years from the neolithic age to the present day. The survey being carried out by the Maritime Archaeology Stewardship Trust, has recovered the remains of houses, courtyards, and remnants, which pointed to the place having roads or tracks in the ancient times. According to the Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture & Heritage, the project aims at conserving UAE's coastal heritage.
