15 Photos That Prove Al Wajh Is The Ultimate Summer Destination

Article Featured Image

Located in the northwestern of Saudi Arabia’s Tabuk region lies the hidden gem that is the coastal city of Al Wajh. An up-and-coming tourist favourite, Al Wajh is the place to go to enjoy pristine Red Sea coastline, without the hoards of crowds in better known places that cater to visitors. Instead, Al Wajh has a serene vibe, and many relics of a city that was once a thriving shipping port.

It’s the perfect destination for those wanting a mix of a beach vacation with a tough of traditional Saudi, but without long lineups and anything that’s been “overdone.”

Here are 15 photos that prove Al Wajh is the ultimate summer destination:

15. Fishing has always been a major way of life in Al Wajh, and still is to this day. Try your hand at scoring a big catch on a scenic boat ride and better yet feast on some fresh seafood at a local restaurant

14. You’ve never seen water this turquoise before

13. OK — so it’s not super touristy yet, but there are still some great photo ops for the ‘gram

12. The ruins of the old town are a must-see. You’ll get an almost eerie (but not creepy) vibe in the deserted streets

11. Grab your diving or snorkelling gear and check out the prettiest coral reefs
