Description

Located in the northwestern region of Tabuk province, Umluj consists of 104 islands, sewn together to form an archipelago in the Red Sea. Famous for its serene landscape, white sandy beaches, pristine clear turquoise waters, and virgin islands, Umluj has often been described as the Saudi Arabian Maldives.

The marine life here is so active that you do not have to travel far or search in the depths of the water to locate it; you can easily see it through the beautiful crystal clear water. The picture perfect beaches appear to be straight out of a postcard and are a major source of attraction for locals and tourists alike.

Major Attractions

The beaches and islands may be ideal for swimming, sunbathing, bird watching, and water sports. Visitors can take a boat to different islands such as Jabal Hassan Ras, Al Shaaban, and Doqm and relaxing at silk sand and palm-tree beaches away from the bustling city life. Moreover, the locals are extremely hospitable and friendly, which gives the area a fun and laid back vibe.

You won’t see a lot of large ships or ferries in the area. If you want to explore the beautiful water or go fishing you will have to take a small boat. With the passage of time, the popularity of these islands seems to be increasing and Umluj is becoming a favoured attraction for both local and international tourists for its picturesque beauty and its calm, relaxing ambiance.

Known as the ‘Maldives of Saudi Arabia,’ Umluj offers tourists with breathtaking landscapes. It is one of the governorates in the Tabuk region and a stunning small town in the kingdom. With more than 100 gorgeous islands, the best places to visit in Umluj include cotton-white sandy beaches, hidden coral reefs, deep blue and turquoise water, and magical vistas. The town provides a place where travelers can unwind from their hectic routine, explore the reefs and relax on the beaches. It features several beachside towns and open places with many welcoming restaurants. Umluj is a part of the Red Sea project; therefore, ferries, boats, and large ships are banned from sailing in the area. This makes many Umluj tourist places untouched, quiet, and peaceful. It is an isolated gem that attracts travelers from all over the world. With crystal-clear water meeting the blue sky at the horizon, the town also has reefs that add vibrant colors to the landscape, making the peninsula a dream destination.
