Silver Sands Beach Resort – how to get there?
The resort is located approx 40 km from the city center. Not many residents of Jeddah know about the place. The stuff from our hotel did not even know anything about the private resorts, neither taxi driver, so we had to use Google Maps (coordinates: 21.7727N 39.0556 E). You should go towards the direction of the North Obhur district. The resort is not marked, and it looks very inconspicuously from the outside.
Silver Sands Beach – Price
A single entry during the weekend costs 150 SAR (approx. 35 EUR); admission for children is the cost of 100 SAR (approx. EUR 25). There is also an annual membership for the price of SAR 5,000 (approx. EUR 1200).
The whole place is really big. There are plenty of sunbeds, umbrellas, and showers. The resort does not rent the towels so you have to take your own. It’s divided into two parts, the beach with shallow access to water and a small island in the middle. The second part has access from the shore directly to deep water so it’s usually occupied by fishing or doing water sports (kite surfing, windsurfing, snorkeling). There is also a large playground for children, a restaurant, water bicycles, and a volleyball court.
Silver Sand Beach is described as one of the best resorts in Jeddah. The place where you really can feel like on holidays When I went there for the first time I was quite shocked that I can wear a bikini while I’m still in Saudi and nobody cares. The price for admission is definitely worth a day spent on the clean, sandy beach in the crystal blue water and the atmosphere of Western resorts.
