Book flights to Yanbu

One of the oldest inhabited settlements in the world, Yanbu is a popular port city in the west of the Al Madinah region in Saudi Arabia. Yanbu overlooks the Red Sea and has picturesque islands, lush parks and idyllic beaches. The city gets its name from 'Yanbu Al -Bahr', which means 'spring by the sea'. And although it is majorly known for its commercial sector, the city is also a bustling tourist destination. 

As you wander Yanbu's ancient streets, you will find historic buildings and structures to explore. From modern malls to ancient souqs, fine dining to delicious street food, the culture and energy of the city will enthral you. The warm waters of the Red Sea are perfect for enjoying a range of water activities, including sailing, scuba diving and fishing. Book a flight to Yanbu with Qatar Airways and discover an exotic, eclectic and welcoming city that will capture your heart as soon as you arrive.

 Yanbu travel highlights

From enjoying a fun-filled family day out at the beach, to indulging yourself at one of the city’s finest restaurants, Yanbu offers plenty to see and do. Visit the Yanbu Heritage District to learn more about Saudi Arabian culture, and take a sunset stroll along the corniche to admire the coastline.

  • Tourist attractions

    Al Bahr Beach: This beach is a sweep of powder-soft sand lapped by warm, azure water. It's safe for young children to go paddling and there are excellent facilities on offer to make this the ideal day out for the whole family. Those looking for more excitement can try a variety of water sports, including diving the coast's coral reefs. PADI-approved diving schools will teach you the essentials if it's your first time, while more experienced divers can explore the Iona shipwreck. 

    Lawrence of Arabia House: Lawrence of Arabia – a British Intelligence officer who assisted against the Ottoman Empire during World War I – spent many years in Yanbu, embracing its culture and lifestyle. His house is now a fascinating historical heritage site you can explore with a guided tour.

    Yanbu Night Market: Yanbu's night market is hundreds of years old, making it a famous landmark in the city. When it was first established, the night market was a significant destination for sailors and merchants travelling to the ancient seaport from Africa. It offers a unique shopping experience for locals and visitors, who will be enthralled by the energy of this unique souq.

  • Leisure activities

    The Royal Commission Beach is a great spot to enjoy a seaside picnic after an afternoon spent galloping through the shallow waves on horseback or exploring the coral reefs.

    Take a stroll in nature and discover the lakes in Yanbu Lake Park. With flowing waterfalls and miles of pathways meandering through green parkland, this tranquil spot is just the place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. If travelling with children, you can find plenty of playgrounds here to keep them entertained, while you relax to the sound of birdsong and the breeze in the trees.

    Book a flight to Yanbu with Qatar Airways during the spring, and you may be lucky enough to catch the city's Flower Festival. This incredible floral display has previously included the world's largest flower carpet. Colourful and fragrant, it's definitely an Instagram-worthy event that can’t be missed.

  • Food

    Yanbu presents a culinary delight with exceptional dining options. From local eateries serving authentic Saudi Arabian cuisine and traditional dishes, to international restaurants offering diverse flavours, there is something for every palate. 

    Thanks to its location and close proximity to the sea, you’ll find a lot of fresh fish on offer in Yanbu. The most famous dish is siyadiah, a plate of fish and spiced rice. Or you can try the regional variation of the Saudi classic kabsa, which in Yanbu is made using conch. If you have a sweet tooth, there are plenty of desserts on offer. Try mash'aba, a thin, pretzel-like treat made with rosewater and drizzled with syrup and chopped nuts – a delicious sticky treat with a distinctive flavour that everyone will love. Wash everything down with a glass of mint tea, and you have the true flavours of this exotic region.

  • Shopping

    Yanbu offers a vibrant shopping scene. One of the prominent destinations is Dana Mall, one of the biggest malls in the region and an absolute shopper's paradise. Here, you can indulge in a wide range of well-known retail names, from international brands to local boutiques.
