For centuries, Yanbu was a key trading post on the Arabian Gulf. Today, it is one of the world’s major petroleum and commercial hubs.
But the city, located in the western region of Saudi Arabia, also caters to the needs of leisure travellers. Located on the Red Sea coast, Yanbu is becoming a much-sought-after scuba-diving spot and a popular destination among water-sports fans. Crystal clear waters, powdery white shores and luxury marinas have made this predominantly industrialised coastline a magnet for visitors looking for an alternative getaway.
Book a flight to Yanbu with Qatar Airways and prepare to discover a quaint, yet vibrant, city, where old-world charm meets modern-day comforts.
