Fed by saltwater from the Red Sea, King Fahd's Fountain represents one of the tallest fountains in the world, shooting into the sky a single plume of water. Visible across Jeddah, the fountain was completed in 1985, donated to the city by King Fahd. The iconic landmark is visible from many vantage points, but remains most impressive when viewed from the shoreline. Head to the water's edge and see the sheer force of the single fountain jet, lit up as the sun goes down for that picture-perfect moment.

  • The fountain is illuminated at night and quite a sight. The fountain can be seen from the Corniche off the Al Hamra section of Jeddah. Our hotel was located with a clear view of this Jeddah landmark.
