Farasan Island for a week end

Yes, you can


Thank you for offering to answer some questions.
We are planning on visiting the Island together with our 3 children and would lik eot know if there is a company that organizes day out on a boat to explore the island and do some snorkeling? Do they provide the snorkeling equipment?
Many thanks

unfortunately, there's no companies for that, but there is local people who does that, if you need more information or contact details, i'll provide it to you.

can i get rent a car in Farsan island for one day.?

dear sir,

i don't think there is car rental companies.

hi sir, is it possible to just camp in the shoreline of the islands? we don't have a car nor hotel bookings, but we have a tent. we do this in rabigh area and the coast guards are totally OK with it and even check on us everytime. we are wondering if it's the same with farasan?
thank you.

Yeah, it's okay to go and camp, there's no issues

I would like to Farasan Island for a weekend with some friends. May someone share the contact of those apartments or a way to book them?

Thank you in advance

Hi guys, sorry to revive this thread but I'm planning on visiting Farasan soon, however, from the following website: https://lm.mot.gov.sa/Main.aspx I am unable to book my car.  Can anyone help?

Secondly, if it can't be done online, how easy will it be to do it from the office?  Can I book my and my wife's ticket online and then add the car from the office?

Finally, if I don't take the car, are taxis available at the farasan side?  Can I book a taxi or a guide for 3 hours?

Thank you for all your help in advance.

Usually the car booking is full at office, you might get a ticket at chance but that might also be of after 1 to 2 days
There r no taxis at the island, only private taxis with arabic only drivers but your hotel might be able to help in that regard

Hi guys,

For everyone looking for information, found this pretty recent article on the ferry and the Farasan Island:
