Saudi Arabia is possibly among the world’s most under discovered countries. The kingdom’s geographic location, coupled with its wide expanse and varied landscapes of mountain peaks, enormous oases, escarpments, caves, seas, deserts, canyons, plateaus and beautiful coastlines have made it perfect for many outdoor activities and adventures including scuba diving, snorkeling, wind surfing, sailing, swimming, hiking including desert & rugged terrain hiking, camping, mountain & rock climbing, cycling, fishing, horseback & camel riding, sand skiing, off-roading including quad-biking & 4X4 Jeep dune bashing and much more.

Here are just a few highly recommended locations to go to and activities to take part in when visiting Saudi Arabia


Scuba Diving

The coastal city of Jeddah is one of the most spectacular diving and snorkeling destinations, with many unique areas to discover the stunning marine life deep down the Red Sea. The area is submerged, pristine, and untouched and it is where you can interact with the beauty of pure nature, and where you discover and learn about the most beautiful and rare marine creatures. The four diving destinations near Jeddah are

1. Swim with Sharks in Sharm Obhur
Located in the middle north part of Jeddah, near the Luxury resort of Bhadur, Sharm Obhur, it is one of Jeddah’s best diving destinations. If you're a fan of adrenaline-rush adventures, don't miss booking a swimming trip, accompanied by 1.7m-long sharks, deep underwater. This activity is very safe, very fun, and is an exclusive trip to Jeddah. At least 4 people enter a cage around which sharks swim and roam, accompanied by professional experts and divers, and perhaps for the first time in your life, you will observe this unique predator closely, and witness a few moments in its interesting life.

2. Shipwreck Island
In the southwest of Jeddah, you will find the island of Abu Tair, where you will discover the world's most famous ship wreckage, which is all that remains of the Greek Staphonos that sank in 1978, also called the "Cable Wreck," because its cargo was mainly cables, fences, and huge steel beams. And all this debris in the sea hasn't stopped whitetip sharks from living peacefully next to goatfish and blue-spotted rays, all of which can be found swimming around shipwrecks resembling sparkling candles.

3. Jabal Al Laith
Located 200 km south of Jeddah, the charming island of Jabal Al Laith is the largest incubator for whale sharks and is one of the most beautiful diving areas in Saudi Arabia. Characterized by crystal-clear water and a white-sand area of 4 sq/km, it is an ideal option for diving in spring or early summer.

4. Great Coral Reef
Far from the center of Jeddah, approximately a two–hour drive to the north, is the beautiful dive site called Abu Faramesh. This 40km long reef is huge and home to tuna fish and whitetip sharks, and deep within its waters lie the famous shipwreck of “Ann Ann”, the details of which will be discovered when you reach the depth of 32 meters underwater. You will be amazed by the spectacle of the ship that has preserved its original condition since 1977, and in part by the fact that tuna settled in the ship’s cargo spaces, sharing them with blue–spotted rays and whitetip sharks. This spot is specifically the best location for taking photos.

Cruise the Red Sea

A new and exciting way to explore Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea Coast is through Cruising. Hop on board the luxurious Silver Spirit on a three- or four-day package, which includes fine dining, entertainment and stops at virgin-sand beaches.

Saudi Arabia has exceptional opportunities to discover unspoiled and unexplored islands and beaches. So for an authentic Arabian experience with private dining, rooms that overlook the sea, large auditoriums, small markets offering sundries and souvenirs, health and wellness facilities, swimming pools and recreation areas, do not miss this cruise experience.

Among the stunning sites to see while cruising the Red Sea is Ras Al Abyad (Coastal White Head), in Yanbu, which features an all-female beach as well as family beaches, all on pristine beaches. Another popular stop is Sindalah Island, which offers a spa and private cabanas on the beach. All locations where cruise ships dock will provide everything from fine local cuisine to burger joints and will also have water activities for both adults and children.

At sea, dolphin sightings are not uncommon and soon, cruises will be adding snorkeling excursions to see first-hand the famous coral reefs of the Red Sea. Beyond that, expect azure water as far as the eye can see, fresh sea air, lots of fun and memories that will last a lifetime.


Moon Mountain Jeddah

The valley located in the northeast of Jeddah near the village of Asfan, an hour away from the city center, is known for its unique terrain and striking rock formations shaped over many years jutting out from the soft sands and endless desert views. It is a favorite destination for desert hikers.

Thrill-seekers are attracted to the exceptional nature of this place, which allows for amazing activities. These activities include quad-biking and driving four-wheelers, camel riding and mountain climbing, and group sports, like football, volleyball, tug of war, and hiking on the sand desert.

The Edge of the World (Jebel Fihrayn)

One of Saudi’s most popular tourist destinations, it got its nickname from the uninterrupted view of the horizon it offers atop its 300-meter-high cliffs, which overlook the surrounding plain. It’s part of the much longer Tuwaiq escarpment, and drops down roughly 305 meters into an ancient ocean bed. From the top of the cliffs, you’ll spot dried rivers weaving across the land and may even see camels moving far below — an ancient caravan route once passed through these grounds.

The trip to the Edge of the World from Riyadh takes about 90 minutes by car. Hikers can choose from a range of routes to get to the top, but with rugged terrain, steep climbs and sharp rocks, good walking shoes are a must.
