Very beautiful, clean and the sounds of the waves remembering my country of origin. Walking in the cornisch road, not on week end it is full of people, but rather walk early in the morning for a jog or in late afternoon during sunset.

Prior to my visit, i researched and chanced on reviews and contrary to what is said from smell right to cleanliness, lets face it. It is a place of worship, a place with value, a place where pilgrims will visit as part of their Hajj tours. That much i can and will say. It was low tide on a hot... More

this is a very nice mosque on the sea however the surrounding area should be fitted out and very dirty due to people's incivility ... moreover next to a mosque it is very shocking

The name of the mosque is AL-Rahmat in Arabic in case you want to ask the taxi driver. It is good to visit the Corniche to see the sunset and of course the mosque. It is different hat other mosque since it has a very nice view on the sea and you can enjoy relaxing there while having the sunset,... More

An architectonic interesting mosque must make impression during rising tide that it floats in the sea. Some families are having picknics near this place suring sunsent. Anyway surroundings could be cleaner. Swimming is not recommended as it is an ansuitable swimming area.

We stop by this sea side on our way to Jeddah Airport. The sight of this mosque seem like floating on the Red Sea is amazing. It is beautifuly design and well decorated. Standing at this location, one can imagine the sea is parted in two by the Prophet Moses A.S long time ago to escape from his enemy. It... More
