OVERVIEW

Nestled on the tranquil shores of the Arabian Gulf in the Eastern Province, Al Khobar has grown from a small port town into one of the most beautiful cities in Saudia Arabia. Its relaxed, cosmopolitan vibe making it popular with holidaymakers and expats alike. Along with nearby Dhahran, Al Khobar is geared towards open-air activities, with lush parks, waterfront cafes and sandy beaches in plentiful supply. The waterfront, known as the Corniche, includes the Prince Faisal bin Fahad Sea Park, and is a popular spot for families, with the iconic Water Tower providing panoramic views of the city and its stunning coastline.

Glossy shopping malls around King Khaled Street cater to local and international shoppers, while those in search of cultural pursuits should head to the Bayoonya district – the city’s cultural hub – for street art exhibitions and museums.
