  • Nice waterfront area. Good when it's not crowded. Services are as good as nil.
  • Marjan island is an amazing man-made island. Suitable for kids and adults. Its a must-visit-place in Dammam. Wonderful sea breeze. Great place to walk. Also a great destination for fishing. Or simply pass time with family. Coffe shops available.
  • Very nice place with wonderful sea views. It is also very good for barbecues. People who love fishing can also have a very good chance to practice their favourite habit in this calm place. The place is free and very close to the center of the city and it has also a cafeteria inside. The road connecting the island to the city has also many good places for seating watching the sea and for fishing as well.
  • A gorgeous place to visit especially in winters and spring season. The cruise is not always available so I suggest making a call and confirming beforehand. There's only one solitary branch of derby coffee in the middle of the island. There are however some vendors that sell tea, roasted corn etc. in the parking lot. The iconic tower is usually closed and hasn't been maintained in quite some time but the view from its top is definitely amazing
  • Great place for family and friends to have picnic. Excellent for kids as the playground is huge to cater large crowd. It has beautiful sea front. You can bring foods to eat or dine nearby restaurant. The place is clean and well lit during night time. It has cool athmosphere. Very accessible and near to shopping malls. Recommended place and must to visit if you are in Dammam area 🖒🖒🖒🖒🖒🖒🖒🖒🖒🖒
