Visiting Al Khobar – A City Guide
Al Khobar is a laidback city set on Saudi Arabia’s gulf coast. Its sandy beaches and dusty shopping streets may seem quiet, but that’s part of its charm. With museums, malls and restaurants all ticking along at an unhurried pace, Al Khobar is a place that invites visitors to slow down and relax.

Al Khobar: city layout and top attractions
Al Khobar’s downtown area is defined by King Khalid Road on its west and the gulf coast on its east. Most of the city’s commercial activity can be found in Al Aqrabiya and Al Shamaliah, with rows of small shops amongst luxury malls and hotels. The Corniche Road, with its parks and restaurants, runs along much of the coastline. Northwest is Dammam, the regional capital. The beaches of Half Moon Bay lie to the southwest.

The first stop for many is the Corniche, where joggers and cyclists whizz past picnicking families and playing children. You can walk north towards the Sultan Bin Abdulaziz Science and Technology Centre, or SciTech, a futuristic building housing several exhibit halls and an aquarium.

The concierge recommends…

  • Immersing yourself in an IMAX film at SciTech’s enormous Scientific Dome. The films are screened in Arabic, but headsets with an English soundtrack are available.
  • Finding out about the Saudi oil industry at the Aramco Exhibit, where interactive displays will keeps kids – and adults – entertained and informed.
  • Half Moon Bay for its long beaches, camel rides and dune buggies.

Eating Out in Al Khobar
Al Khobar offers restaurants and snack outlets at all prices. European-style cafés in Mall of Dhahran and Al-Rashid Mall entice the hungry with freshly baked pastries and strong Arabian coffee. Along the Corniche, food trucks and mobile stalls sell savoury nibbles and sweet treats. Dinners are usually a leisurely affair, with fresh seafood and meat the main feature.

Despite its no-frills exterior, Al Shahrour Restaurant is a local favourite for reasonably priced, high-quality Lebanese food. Al Khobar Traditional Village offers Saudi cuisine in private rooms with floor seating. No trip to Al Khobar would be complete without seafood at the long-established Soul Kitchen.

Restaurants and cafés are divided into “men-only” and “family” sections. The “family” section is for parties of men and women, and all-women groups.

The chef recommends...

  • Kabda Dammami: A traditional Saudi dish with rice, chicken and spices. This hearty meal is usually served on a large platter.
  • Shawarma: A flatbread filled with thinly sliced grilled meat, usually lamb or chicken, shredded vegetables, pickles and condiments.
  • Hammour: Also known as grouper, this succulent, meaty fish can be prepared in any number of ways. Try it grilled with saffron and rosewater.

Shopping in Al Khobar
You’ll feel like a local shopping in Al Khobar’s traditional open-air souq, a sprawling maze of shops between Prince Bandar Street and King Khalid Street, but there are plenty of modern malls, too.

Al-Rashid Mall recreates has air-conditioned comfort in its Qaisariya area, while its Boulevard is a ladies-only section. With luxury labels, Mall of Dhahran is so vast it’s often used for morning walks during the hot summer months.

Shops close for around 10-20 minutes during prayer times. If you’re in a shop during one of these times, you’ll be asked to leave. In the mall, the shops shut, but you can wait in the corridors. In a supermarket or a large store like IKEA, you’ll have to stay inside until the staff re-appear.

Top souvenirs from Al Khobar

  • Gold: Purchase some jewellry to commemorate your trip. Name pendants are a popular souvenir.
  • Home furnishings: Desert Designs is a treasure trove of local wares, including carpets, furniture and lanterns.
  • Aramco oil: The gift shop at the Aramco Exhibit has unusual souvenirs, including acrylic paperweights with a suspended drop of oil.

Culture & Nightlife in Al Khobar
Al Khobar may not have bars and clubs, but that doesn’t mean sitting indoors all evening twiddling your thumbs. You can catch an Arabian Gulf sunset at the Corniche or Half Moon Bay, then bask in the suddenly cool weather with a waterfront stroll.

Shopping is a popular way to while the evening away, and Al Khobar’s souqs and malls come alive at night. Bargaining is expected in small shops, as long as it comes with a friendly manner and a smile. When you’ve reached your window-shopping limit, >Mall of Dhahran has an indoor ice rink and arcade games.

The city holds its annual AlAl Khobar Festival in January, with fireworks on the waterfront, folklore performances, acrobatic shows and sporting events.

Contemporary art galleries in Al Khobar

Leisure in Al Khobar
Al Khobar’s Corniche is packed with waterfront parks and promenades, ideal for casual walks or more rigorous exercise. Early morning and, more commonly, late afternoon, are popular times to go. During the heat of the day, many retreat to Mall of Dhahran or Al-Rashid Mall, both of which have kid-friendly entertainment.

Al Khobar’s excellent road connections make it well-placed for day trips to nearby areas.

Day trips from Al Khobar

  • Head north to Tarout Island, an archaeological site believed to date back over 5,000 years. At its heart is the 16th-century red-clay Tarout Fort, with four striking towers around a central courtyard. After exploring the fort, you can walk through the crumbling stone ruins of the ancient village of Al Deyrah.
  • South of Al Khobar is Hofuf, home to a network of stunning limestone caves in Al Qarah Mountain.
