The ancient city of Dammam is the capital of the Eastern Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With hot summers (temperatures often reach 50°C) and warm winters, it's a great destination to visit any time of the year.
Book your flights to Dammam with British Airways from London Heathrow to wonder through the majestic landmarks of Dammam.
Oil was first discovered here in the 1940's, and the region is now the most oil-rich country in the world. Today, Dammam is a modern centre for industry and the headquarters of the Saudi Arabian oil industry. The city and surrounding areas are served by the King Fahd International Airport, about 20km to the northwest of the city.
Public transport is limited and hiring a car is recommended. Taxis cost around 10-20 SR for trips within the city.
Dammam has some wonderful beaches, just perfect for families or for relaxing in the sun. The striking modern art installations at the Dammam Corniche are a popular tourist attraction. Stretching from Aziziah Beach to Tarot Island, it's a truly beautiful seaside resort.
Take advantage of the great weather and head to Half Moon Bay, one of the most popular beaches in the region and fantastic for water sports. With two amusement parks to entertain, it's a perfect way to spend the day. Or, climb the lighthouse at Coral Island for a magnificent view of the Persian Gulf. It's also a great spot for fishing and there are lots of activities for everyone to enjoy.
There are few upmarket restaurants in the city but food is cheap and there are some delicious local dishes that you really should sample during your stay. Try the Nejdi Kabsa, a popular local dish, made with chicken or lamb.
