Oh, how I hate Ogair. It’s still dilapidated looking but, I haven’t been there since last year so it may have undergone another face-lift.
The only advantage is how empty it is as compared to Halfmoon. I was dying to know where my modest friend (Saudi, not ex-pat) acquired the tan-lines across her shoulders and that’s when she let the location of her secret abaya-free swimming spot out- Ogair, after fajr, mid-week.
Where is Ogair beach? I always ended up going to Obhur beach in Jeddah, Great beaches, awesome snorkelling.
SSW: Ogair is the way it is because Ahssa Municipality, an official body known for its incompetence, is the one responsible to take care of it. It was my first time there, and I can see they’ve been working to improve it but it is still far from being acceptable.
As you said, it’s empty compared Halfmoon, and I like that because I’m not a fan of big crowds. Plus, it’s only half-an-hour drive from Hofuf so that makes it easier when you suddenly feel you want to see the sea without much thinking or preparation.
Mansour: Ogair used to be a main seaport on the Gulf but it is no longer used.
Looks like a great beach! And very empty! :)
Pardon me for being geographically challenged regarding that area of the world, but what body of water does that beach encompass?
