Corniche

The Corniche of Jeddah is a 30 km coastal resort area of the city. It is located beside the Red Sea as well as King Fahd’s Fountain, the highest fountain in the world. With its many features, some include a coastal road, recreation areas, pavilions and large-scale civic sculptures.  Moreover the Al-Rahmah Mosque (previously known as the Fatimah Mosque) is also located close to the corniche, which is a very popular attraction to tourists.

The Corniche is currently undergoing renovation; but, it will be renewed, expanded, and upgraded with restaurants, play areas, and entertainment by early 2014. The renovations will include a ferris wheel similar to the London Eye. It is divided into southern, central, and northern corniche which stretches almost 110 km, with plenty of hotels, restaurants, amusement parks, picnic areas, a science museum, and mosques.
