Another White Beach Island in Saudi Arabia

Last Tuesday, my colleagues and I went to a white beach island here in Saudi Arabia. It was just a brief visit because we were picked up from our apartment at a quarter before 5 in the afternoon. When we arrived at the docking area, the local navy collected the photocopy of our passport and listed our names in the register book. We also had to wait for the VIP guy who invited us to the island. We finally left the dock at 5:30 and arrived at the island at almost 6 in the evening – with the sun still up but close to sunset.

We went there too late in the afternoon, so, bear with me if these photos aren’t really that great. We shall return.

This is the second island white beach island in Saudi Arabia that I’ve been to.

And this is the tiny island where we docked our boat. It’s as big as our classroom.

Then we had to walk on this long and winding, white sandbar.

The sandbar connects to a bigger island.

From an elevated point, it looks like this.

It’s a 25-minute ride by motorized boat from the mainland.

You can’t really go there unless you know a big fish. It’s even off limits to the locals.

High tide had just started by the time we decided to go back to our boat.

And the sandbar was already submerged in water.

Hopefully, before our summer vacation starts, we’ll have the chance to go back there on a broad daylight. I’ll bring a big plastic bag so I can collect some of those plastic bottles that littered around the tiny islands.
