Spelling Out your Ultimate Sunny To-Do List

2222

Whether you’re in for some arid adventures at the capital or getting your humid laced vitamin sea at either coast, we’ve put together a guide to writing your best Saudi Summer Story yet…


This season is brought to you by the letters A-Z. Are you ready?

 

A – for Adventure

If adventure runs in your veins inject excitement and perhaps a bit of adrenaline into your daily schedule. Take a day out or two to explore the country–whether it’s a weekend road trip or an early ride on two wheels; it’s time to rough it up in the name of fun.

  • Go on a Bike Ride

The easy mode, where you could either rent a bicycle and hit the cycle tracks on the New Jeddah Beach, explore local favorites in Riyadh like Wadi Hanifah and Diplomatic Quarter or ride by the Al Khobar Corniche, where you will witness stunning picturesque sights.

Want to amp it up?
Go Expert mode and try Dirt Biking. The Saudi Dirtbike Center is a guided enduro/adventure bike tour operator and a dirtbike training center that’ll help you get your gears rolling.

  • Discover a Cave

Put your sunscreen on and head out to explore majestic caves. You can take a semi-road trip to the Heet Cave in Riyadh, located near Mount AlJubayl in the small town of Heet, a 45-minute drive from the city center. The cave is classified as a sinkhole that houses the bluest waters. Another must-visit cave is the Jabal Qarah, located in Hofuf in the Al Ahsa Oasis, a popular location with locals. The place draws in people during summer as the high walls and limestone regulates the temperature, keeping the caverns cool even on a hot day. Jabal Qarah is also known for its museum.

  • Scoot over! Electric Scooters are Here

– KAEC
Make the most of the bike stations where you can rent HopOn electric scooters and cycles and ride across the city and its enchanting beach.

  • Plan a Road Trip

Hit the road and head to the many diverse locations in and around the country. If you like a more tropical summer getaway, ride up to the Farasan Islands in Jizan or Umluj in Tabuk. While if you’re looking for a cool breeze, you can head to the glorious mountain cities of Saudi that are a haven for all those looking for a respite from the sun! Such as Abha, AlBaha, Tanomah, and Namas. You can also head East towards AlAhsa, known for its luscious palm-tree-filled oasis. While there, don’t forget to stop by their famous traditional markets and have a sampling of the seafood.

PRO TIP
You can submit Jabal Qarah; the village of Al Qarah and its mountain can be found only a 25-minute drive East of Al Hofuf toward Al Ahsa National Park, rising 205 meters above sea level. Getting to the top will give you access to panoramic views of the city. Make sure you hire an experienced guide before heading up.


lanscapeB – for Beach

The one thing that will always be iconic in Saudi Arabia during summer is our affinity with the beach. Whether it’s the East or West Coast, once the sun is out, so are we. Here are some things you can do while the waves crash in and you take into the beauty of #beachlife.

 

  • Watch the sunrise & sunset

The sweet spot before the summer heat takes over is right before the sun rises. Make the most of this golden hour to awe at the orange hues that take over the horizon, right over the deep blue sea. Of course, you can also head to the beach around sunset as the cooler air takes over to sit on the beach benches for a quiet time.

 

  • Have a picnic

Pack your picnic baskets with your favorite treats and head to the beach; most public beaches in the country are surrounded by verdant green parks that are the perfect spots to lay down your picnic blanket, especially under the shade of a tree. So pack your fav treats and head to the beach.
Leave no Trace: Make sure to carry garbage bags and clean up once you’re done.

Picnic-Friendly Public Beaches:
→ Corniche, Al Khobar                

→ Jeddah Waterfront, Jeddah             
→ Alaiqh Beach Park, Yanbu
→ Umluj Corniche, Umluj           

→ Al Nakheel beach, Al Jubail           
→ Al Nawras Island, Yanbu

  • Beach Volleyball

Nothing like a good rally with the sands between your toes as you play volleyball. No toss-up here!

Best places for beachside volleyball:
→ Beach Volleyball Court, Pure Beach, Yam Beach  – KAEC
→ Youth Beach – Yanbu  
→ Boho The Beach, La Plage, Sol Beach Resort, Oia Beach Resort, Seychelles Resort  – Jeddah


C – for Culture

Summer is also the best time to explore and enjoy cultural sites (especially those air-conditioned ones *wink wink*), so head out to the beautiful museums for some drive-by or a long-winded trip down history.

  • Riyadh’s The National Museum
    The National Museum at the King Abdulaziz Historical Center houses an expansive collection that will take you from one era to another. The museum houses vital historical artifacts and hosts cultural events and temporary exhibitions– be it art, design, archeological or more.
  • The Multifaceted ITHRA at Dhahran
    The King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture, known for its acronym ITHRA, focuses on culture, learning, and cross-cultural activities. The Center incorporates a general museum, a children’s museum, a library, cinema, theater, and large exhibition halls.

PRO TIP
Avoid the peak hours at Museums to dodge the crowd.

→ Lunch hours usually tend to have fewer visitors and so do Sundays or the start of the week.

Ffor Food Crawls

Suppose you’re looking to ball on a budget; in that case, you will love Saudi Arabia’s street and comfort food culture. Where, even with SR 50 in your wallet, you can have giant plates overflowing with food.

Start your breakfast with classics like Falafel, smashed falafel, fried eggplants, fries, and hummus rolled in flatbread that pairs the best with a piping hot cup of Karaak, a spiced tea a sip of which will wake you up.  Another classic is Foul, or Gulaba cooked fava beans, prepared quite differently with Tamez, a crusty flatbread.

For lunch, you can head to a classic Bhukari joint to enjoy a plateful of Rooz (rice), often prepared with carrots and raisins that come with rotisserie chicken. Mandi is another rice dish that can be paired with meat or chicken, a local favorite.  And for dinner, you can also get yourself a Shawarma paired with the classic favorite Mirinda Lemon or fresh juice.

When in Saudi make sure to try the local cult classic fried chicken joint Al Baik!

Shikha Khayat

S – for Standup paddleboarding

With Saudi Surfing Association

Saudi Surfing Association is a sporting organization backed by the Saudi Olympic Committee and is affiliated with the International Surfing Association (ISA) and The Asian Surfing Federation.

One of the most exciting sports in Saudi Surfing is SUP (Stand-up Paddle Boarding) which is the most suitable on Saudi Arabia’s coastline.

The ideal location for SUP in Saudi Arabia is where there are flat water conditions to practice, which is in Jeddah. Mohammed Alshibel is one of the most talented coaches in Saudi Surfing. He stated that SUP is a straightforward water sport to learn, and you can become an expert paddleboarder in no time. According to him, people of all ages and fitness levels are capable of learning to paddle board in just a few hours with proper instructions.

Hassan Ajaj

Hassan Ajaj

Shikha Khayat and Hassan Ajaj are the first Saudi players to ever take part in the APP World Tour Race with the assistance of coach Mohammed Alshibel representing Saudi Arabia and Saudi surfing in Busan, Korea. They explained why Stand-up Paddle Boarding should be on your summer to-do list.

Shikha Khayat’s tip is to be a good swimmer because you never know what situation could occur while practicing water sports and be aware of the weather conditions and water temperature, so you have to prepare a suitable wetsuit, sunglasses, a hat that is made for water sports and a sunblock to avoid skin damage.

Hassan Ajaj’s tip for SUP is if a person wants to learn SUP and the steps of exercising this sport, you should always start with a flat water surface that doesn’t involve any waves to master the skill of balancing and paddling while standing up.
