Durrat Al Arus
Durrat Al Arus is the oldest private beach in Jeddah, and the one that started the trend among the city’s residents of gravitating towards private beaches. Non-membership based and known for its wholesome community feel, this place is huge with more than 1,000 beach villas, a diving school, a golf course and even its own theme park. Entry and renting a villa is extremely flexible – daily rental is available – and with everything the resort has to offer, it’s extremely popular amongst locals and families. It gets booked really quickly for Eid and other long weekends, so best to plan a trip in advance.
