Capital of the Jizan Province

Jazan is the most important city of the Tihamah coastal plain. These coastal plains extend along the coast of the Red Sea. The area surrounding Jizan is distinct in the sense that it does not have the typical huge sand dunes that are a distinct part of the Saudi Arabian desert. Instead, you will find low-lying, white sand dunes here. The Farasan Islands are situated opposite Jazan City at a distance of approximately 40 km. These Islands are a jewel of the Red Sea and offer unparalleled and unspoiled biodiversity.
