Come to the Floating Mosque at sunset to enjoy magnificent views. This is best viewed outside the mosque. Also if you manage to catch it during high tide, the mosque literally looks like it is floating.

Nothing special, just a mosque on the ocean. From the photos I saw before visiting I was expecting a lot. But once I arrived it was not too much and I was quickly in a taxi to the next attraction.

the mosque is located above the sea so it seems like it floats on it. the view at night was really nice especially with all the city light on. there is not too much to see because it is a praying mosque and you cannot enter it especially at praying time.

Worth going to. Locals not sure where it is, go to the end of the Corniche past Starbucks and it is close there.

The name "Floating Mosque" is a misnomer. This beautiful mosque is built along the Corniche in North Jeddah. If you are heading to the city center from North Jeddah you will definitely pass by this mosque.

We found this beautiful Mosque by the Red Sea cost on the North Corniche a very refreshing stop for our prayers on time. Well proportioned design on stilts in the sea offers a magnificent sunset view if you are there in time for the prayer. However, it is so far from the city that one would not be inclined to... More
