"Duba, Saudi Arabia" Duba by TinKan

Duba Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 13 photos

The town of Duba is located on the North-Western coast of Saudi Arabia on the Red Sea. It is not much of a town and has only a few houses, a gas station, a propane store and an antenna farm.

The people that do live here make their living from the sea by placing nets in the small bays located around the area.

In the north of Saudi, this town is the place that all dive sites are marked from. Each dive site that we go to is known as 13k, 23k 33k where that signifies the kilometers north of the town that you turn off the road to head to the beach. The beach is about 3 to 10 kilometers from the main road and can only be gotten to by a four wheel drive truck. So each of the sites are secluded.

Take a look at the tips to see some of the pictures that I had taken with an old underwater camera that I had.

There is more to come about this town on the Red Sea once I find the pictures.

    I remember Duba! Which beach was the best? 14 North? Too bad the cost of the trip was so high. When were you in Tabuk, TinKan?

    Duba is the beach to go if u are in Tabuk, Saudi Arabia. Tabuk is near Jordan. It also a place to buy fresh fish and wade on its waters to feel the historical Red Sea!

    Does anyone know if it is possible to sneak around the corner to Aqaba in Jordan without all the silly visa stuff?
