The most beautiful landscapes in Saudi Arabia

Although Saudi Arabia is home to much of the world’s largest sand desert, Rub ‘al Khali, its landscapes are not limited to arid dunes. You will find a varied topography of mountains, forests, coral reefs and beaches that would have nothing to envy them in the Caribbean.

To protect its precious landscapes, Saudi Arabia has launched a series of sustainability commitments under the Saudi Green Initiative (SGI). It involves, for example, planting 10 billion trees and transforming 30% of the national territory into protected areas for wildlife. Good news for environmentally conscious and adventurous tourists who dream of climbing, sand dunes and diving to discover the country.
