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.

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.

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.

One of the main attraction in Dammam. It's an artificial island beautifully maintained. We went at noon, unfortunately all services are not available. The service and facilities are open after 3 o clock. We miss the boating and some other rides. Worth seeing it. Children enjoy the location. Parking available and other amenities are also present. The huts and gardens are well maintained and clean.

Great outdoor place where you can spend the day with your family and friends. The only thing that didn't let me put the last star is the public toilets there that are poorly maintained. But other than that, it is a great place.

A nice place to relax, have a picnic and watch beautiful sunset and moonrise especially on a full moon day. Has a small garden and places for families to sit down and enjoy meals. It also has a small pier with boat rides (closed at present due to Covid19). It was possible to climb stairs and reach to the top of the central structure but now it is barricaded due to the damage caused by people.

Very good place to go around with family and kids. There are some play grounds kids can play in. Also there are some green areas where you can put your mates and sit with your family close to the sea. You will find also a great view of the sea you and your family will enjoy. There are some food trucks where you can buy snacks for your self and cold beverages if you wanted with reasonable price around the parking area. Finally if you like sea activities you can find a place there they have boats trips for families with time schedule. The place is nice and quiet in general and you could visit for curiosity.
