About Yanbu Al Bahr

Yanbu Al Bahr is located to the west of Saudi Arabia and is the largest port city of Al Medinah Region. It is situated on the shores of the Red Sea, one of the few diving centers in the world, with its crystal-clear waters and unique coral reefs. The city is located on a wide plain between the sea and the Radhwa Valley.

It is the second largest city on the Red Sea coast after Jeddah. The history of Yanbu al Bahr dates back to about 2500 years ago. The city witnessed a vivid commercial dynamism throughout its history thanks to its location on the famous Spice Route from Yemen to Egypt and the Mediterranean. Today, the city has become an important transit point on the 'Pilgrimage (Haj) Route'; it is also the entry point to the country for the visitors who prefer transportation by sea thanks to its proximity to Mecca and Medina.

The petroleum industry and the tourism sector are very effective in the city's economy. Yanbu al Bahr is the most important Saudi Arabian city in terms of petroleum processing, petrochemical, and hydrocarbon production. The city is home to high-volume oil refineries and three major oil pipelines. The most popular center in the tourism sector is the Red Sea coast of the city. The region is the center of sailing, diving, and other watersports. The city has been able to successfully protect the delicate balance between petroleum-based industrial development and environmental protection, and the rapid development in the industry has not harmed the natural beauties, especially in the Red Sea. Yanbu Lake and the Red Sea beaches are the most important sightseeing spots in this remarkable city with its virgin beaches, coral reefs and green areas spreading over wide plains.
