Known for its unique and vibrant beaches, the city of Jeddah overlooks the Red Sea, and as the cities of the world unwind and relax on weekdays after sunset, busy life continues at Jeddah's shores until late at night.
Gardens and green areas form a large part of the North Corniche, where residents like to sit facing the Red Sea with their families and friends. The children also enjoy playgrounds set up for them in designated locations near their families. The North Corniche has a vast area estimated at 236,000 m2, stretching from the Border Guard Center to the Nawras Roundabout. The North Corniche has many service stalls, kiosks, and restaurants. There are many recreational places near it, such as Al Shallal Theme Park, Faqih Aquarium, and Jeddah Waterfront.
Central Corniche is known by other names, such as: Alhamra Corniche which is known for having the longest fountain in the world (King Fahd Fountain). This fountain was gifted to the city of Jeddah by King Fahd in 1985. The base of the fountain is represented in the shape of an essence burner expressing hospitality and a warm welcome to Jeddah's visitors. Restaurants and service kiosks are also scattered along the Central Corniche. You can explore its hidden gems on foot, estimated to be 3.6 km long. We advise you to watch the spectacular sunset at the Central Corniche in front of the fountain, or to enjoy watching palm tree leaf silhouette moving by the sweet breeze as the most luxurious international hotel stands behind it, the Ritz Carlton.

Next to it is a first-rate group of restaurants and cafes in Marina Avenue Mall, such as Café Dijon with a French atmosphere and Kunafa Factory, famous for the finest kinds of desserts. There are also various seating areas at the Corniche, characterized by their simplicity and boat-like shape.
