About Jeddah

Jeddah is one of Saudi Arabia’s most significant cities – it’s also the second largest by size after the capital city of Riyadh. It’s also home to the Jeddah Islamic Port which is a prominent stop along many shipping routes. Many people also travel through Jeddah every day, and many who come are on their way to the holy city of Mecca. Mecca is located just 40 miles east of Jeddah, making it an easy place to fly into before continuing on the journey.

The beaches can get crowded on the weekends, but if you’re in Jeddah on vacation during the week, you have the opportunity to experience the beauty of the sparkling sand and turquoise water without too many others around.
