Description

Murjan Island, also known as Coral island, is an artificial island in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. It is located off Cornish road and features a park with picnic areas, ferry-boat rides, and a playground. The island is connected to the Dammam pier by a bridge. In order to go to the island, tourists can book a boat from the corniche. 

Activities 

There is a much-needed green open space on the island with seating arrangements for people to relax and parks that have swings and slides for the children. Murjan Island is also popular because of its ideal location for fishing. Most of the visitors interested in fishing go either at dawn or sunset for a good catch. Another quality of the island is that it is not a crowded place, and people can enjoy a picnic or barbeque with the family in peace. 

Landscape and Facilities 

Locals, as well as tourists from all around the world, visit the beach because of its beautiful scenery, the neat promenade, mosques, prayer rooms, and restaurants that offer both regional and local cuisine. You can also grab a quick coffee from one of the many cafes on the beach that serve different types of coffee, shakes, and drinks. The island also has a circular tower that looks beautiful at night with all its lighting. At night, you will also be able to appreciate the picturesque views of Dammam from the island.

Best location for an evening drive with your family or friends. Sitting areas are all around the island. Ample parking is available in the Island. Kids play area is also available. It is really fun to climb the tower yet it is very narrow and not always clean.

Marjan island is very good place to visit. There are a lot of sitting areas. It is better to visit at sunrise or sunset time. The parking Was a little bit crowded.

Good to climb to top of tower. The view is beautiful there. But it needs to renovate it and clean the area. Birds were living inside. Smell is bad

I visited here on: 01/05/1443 (Islamic Calendar) 05/Dec/2021 This island is very clean and well maintained. Before 2 years I visited here but it was wet cold but this visit I have enjoyed more than before because the weather was not hot or cold but it was very good weather. If you want to visit than visit in the beginning of Dec. Playing area for children is available. Ship is fantastic.
