Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, deputy premier, minister of defense and chairman of the Public Investment Fund (PIF), announced the launch of an international tourism project in the Kingdom, called the Red Sea Project on Monday.
This project will be built in one of the world’s most beautiful and diverse natural spots, in cooperation with the world’s largest hotel companies. Exclusive and beautiful resorts will be built on more than 50 natural islands between the cities of Umluj and Al-Wajh, just a few kilometers from one of the Kingdom’s protected reserves and extinct volcanoes in Harrat Al-Rahat area.
The project will be a leading coastal destination, located on a number of Virgin Islands in the Red Sea. A few minutes from the main beach, visitors will be able to discover hidden treasures in the Red Sea area, including a nature reserve finding out the diverse flora and fauna in the area.
Adventure enthusiasts will find a lot to explore in the extinct volcanoes located next to the project area, and diving enthusiasts can explore abundant coral reefs in the surrounding waters.
With tourism becoming the most important economic sectors in Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, the Red Sea project will contribute to a qualitative shift in the concept of tourism and hospitality.
Heritage sites will also be restored on a scientific basis for visitors. The new project aims to promote international tourism by opening the Red Sea wonders to the world in order to identify its treasures and embark on new adventures that will attract tourists locally, regionally and internationally.
