Dusk on the Corniche


Jeddah’s Corniche runs along the coastline of the Red Sea, stretching for miles and miles from the north to the south. It is a popular place for families to enjoy the outdoors and the natural breezes that the sea affords. There are picnic areas, boardwalks, refreshment stands, and vendors who sell everything from kites to prayer rugs. Several mosques have been built along the Corniche as well, to accommodate Muslims for the five daily prayers. Many of Jeddah’s lovely sculptures are also visible along the Corniche – in this photo you can see Dialogue and the Fisherman’s Net.
