Even the great view from opposite shore, Can't access fountain area! I did not like the idea of not experience being near it to feel the water spray!

As per the local information, we understood there is no fixed time for the fountain to run. After few hours of wait, finally it worked. There are no dancing water, or colored lights or theme.

A totally different experience. It's great to witness such an awesome view of fountain within the sea and at the edge of most famous falastine street. Fountain is visible from half of the city as well as its a major landmark of Jeddah when you are arriving to Jeddah via airplane.

It's really nice to see though by night it's more charming. If one gets parking near, then it's a worth trip. Family picnic place

It is like a jet of water at the middle of the sea. What good is that? Difficult to park in the area due to the crowd.
