Explore Marjan Island

Man-made Marjan Island (Coral Island in English) feels like a little slice of paradise. The cooling breeze drifts off the sea, children play on the white sandy beach, and fishermen dip their lines into the waters of the Gulf to see what they can catch for their evening barbecue. Well-maintained gardens offer lots of great spots for a picnic, while the 360 degree sea views provide the perfect backdrop to a sleepy afternoon.

Despite the island’s secluded and relaxed atmosphere, it’s just a short boat ride from The Corniche and Dammam city centre. In the evenings, there are great views of the glittering lights of the city and the illuminated Corniche Road, making it the perfect spot for an evening picnic. For the best views climb to the top of the island’s iconic lighthouse: by day the views are fantastic, but by night they’re even better.

Take a boat trip
The most popular way to reach Marjan Island is by boat, with sea ferries running regularly between the island and The Corniche. Boat trips from Marjan Island offer the opportunity to see more of the coast, and to see the city centre from a different angle. The island is connected to Dammam Pier on the mainland by road, so if prefer not to take a boat you can still visit the island easily.

Meet the dolphins
There is plenty of excitement for all ages at Marjan Island’s amusement park, Dolphin Village. The theme park is located near a road entrance, which leads down to the pier. Animal activities are at the heart of the park: sea lion and dolphin shows take place twice daily, and once the show finishes you can grab a selfie with a dolphin. There’s also a small zoo with monkeys, ostriches, and rabbits and a medium-sized aquarium. Like all good amusement parks, Marjan Island also has some thrilling fairground rides.

After a long day of enjoying yourself on the island, it doesn’t take long to get back to our Park Inn by Radisson Dammam. Return by boat, or with a leisurely wander along the pier.
