This was a disappointing trip into the country. On the way I tried quad biking in the dunes and found the vendors rude unhelpful, the quad bikes were old and not at the standard I would expect and the dunes were littered with rubbish. When I went further to Half Moon beach the shelters were dirty and poorly maintained and... More

Few days back,I visited this beach which is a beautiful beach with many features. You can find BBQ place,children play ground,white sand beach and more over deep blue green sea. Water is calm here,people can swim here freely. Only disappointment is,some places is full with trashes and not much clean as expected.

The beach is clean, well maintained and decorated. In the way to the half-moon beach you will find a hill of sand and you can watch the cars claiming this mountains of sands. There is also a place where you can rent four wheelers and drive around on sand including sand hills.

People need to change their behaviour and work for environment protection as well. Leaving wrappers and empty packets behind not only spoils the natural beauty but also hazardous to marine life. Thrown drink bottles and other junk along the shore line earn you curses only. Its peaceful and if weather is suitable, its nice place to BBQ and spend some... More

Overall did not seem to be much interesting. Nothing much one can do at half moon beach. Not much eateries around where one can go and have good food.

This a famous beach outlet some 20 km from Al Khobar. Reviews are subjective, and from my perspective this would be that last place to visit, poor facilities and services all around (not talking about private beaches), which could be considered good due to lack of other options.

First of all, it trashes a long ride to reach the beach. Second of all, there's not a single mosque or petrol pumb near the beach. And the beach is usually occupied by families who come to eat, so its dirty. I don't think I'll ever go there again.

I have visited Al-Khobar city 1 year ago. I went to Half-moon beach. It is a wonderful beach and it's so good for swimming. Also there you can see a lot of crazy drivers are creeping up the sands. On the Half-moon you can try ridding a house. In my opinion I recommend this place to vista for Who is... More
