We arrived here in the late morning and it was just so-so. It wasn't floating at all but built on the edge of the Dead sea. The beach were made from large stones not from sand so you can't play around much either.

This is just a mosque with some of the building protruding over the sea wall on stilts. Nothing floating about it...There are better mosques further up north along the coastline....

The perfect time to be at the mosque. My other half was disappointed that it wasn't really floating. I could imagine how it would feel with thrashing waves and the call of prayer going off.

Not especially nice, not especially big, not especially within a nice location... But at sunset, Whaow! Worth spending 30 min of your time in Jeddah for sure.

Needs some serious TLC, exterior looks unkempt, surrounding area pretty grim, not very clean. My wife was reading the information board and was told, not asked, to leave by a bad mannered taxi driver.
