Riyadh Sand Dunes

The best time to go sand surfing in Riyadh is during winter, from October until March. For a full Arabian experience, you can enjoy sleeping under the stars on a desert camp, wake up to the smell and taste of a nice cup of traditional coffee, and then hit the dunes with your sandboard, off-road vehicle, or riding a camel.
