While our Muslim friends celebrate their Ramadan Eid Holiday, many expatriates here in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia celebrate their holidays with their friends on different places. One of the best places people go is the open beach found in Buhayrat. It's actually a private property which lies next to a beach and since it is summer, people indulge themselves to a dip in the sea. In the morning, the water is cold which just suits the hot weather while on a cold windy night the water is warm which is also perfect.
It took us more or less an hour to drive from the city of Jeddah to the outskirts of Buhayrat but it was nothing compared to the experience we had in Buhayrat. We left our meeting place around 5 am and we arrived the place while it was still dark. We set our mats on the ground and prepared for our breakfast and when all was set, we took our quick breakfast and went for a dive.
We were all having so much fun that time, the only setback was when some people started to explore more further on the deep part of the sea. A police came and asked everyone to leave. I just hope they didn't close the area so we could come back there sometime and enjoy swimming again. We heard that the reason the police warns and disperses people when they are exploring deep area is because someone was drowned there before. With respect to their authorities (and fear of having violations), we decided to leave the area and just continued our breakfast with our friend's house.
Anyway, here are some of the fun times we had.
It's just another top places to go in Jeddah - Saudi Arabia during summer. Thanks for visiting once again and God bless.
