Yanbu` al Bahr Things to Do

  • Some of the World's best snorkeling

    Snorkeling or Scuba Diving in the Red Sea is phenominal. I finally had some friends show up who wanted to go (You don't go alone) and we made our first foray out. Even though the water was choppy and the visibility not so hot I saw enough to make me sure that I want to do it a lot more!

Yanbu` al Bahr Warnings and Dangers

  • by circumpunct Written Feb 20, 2010

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yanbu was the site of a terrorist attack in 2004 that killed several Americna workers. However it is now pretty safe there and has a better local reputation security-wise than either Jeddah or Riyadh. But if you are a westerner living there, you should make sure your company houses you on a fortified and defended compound, like The Cove.
