    Outdoors under the stars Farasan Islands, KSA

    by OuttaBounds Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Arabian Camp in Jeddah offers non-divers a trip to the Farasan Islands and the annual Parrot Fish Festival April 2007.
    An ancient fishing village, souk and beautiful pristine waters for diving, swimming and fishing, oh and
    snorkling in the Arabian Red Sea.

    I love it because they take care of everything. Camping tents, transport, mats, dive tanks...
    even a toilet and shower.

    For us non-campers or city bound it's a great getaway to appreciate the natural environmnet
    of Arabia. Under the stars...no cell phones work here. It's great!

    Take time to go...

    Equipment: Just pack an overnight bag with swimming gear (and your personal items like
    sun lotion, toiletries you can't live without (or need and want for 3 days) and go.

    Address: Farasan Islands - Red Sea - Saudi Arabia

    Directions: Off the coastal city of Gizan/Jizan.
