Saudi Arabia boasts a coastline of more than 3,400 km on the Red Sea to the west, and the Arabian Gulf to the east. Thousands of islands line these shores, most notably the coral archipelago of the Farasan Islands in the south, now a protected maritime park, which offers some of the most unspoiled diving in the world. Whether it’s watersports, fishing or diving, the Kingdom’s coasts and islands have got everything you need for a spectacular, active holiday.
