Shis (Arabic: شيص‎) is the name of a settlement to the East of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The village of Shis was previously accessed only by a track leading from the East Coast up the Wadi Shis, a seasonal watercourse that passes through the Omani exclave of Madha and the Emirati exclave of Nahwa, itself enclosed by the Omani exclave.[1] The village is now reached by the Khor Fakkan road.[2][3]

It is the location of the Shees Park., a recreational facility opened in October 2020.
