Owner description: This beautiful white mosque seems to emerge from the sea.

We found this beautiful Mosque by the Red Sea cost on the North Corniche a very refreshing stop for our prayers on time. Well proportioned design on stilts in the sea offers a magnificent sunset view if you are there in time for the prayer. However, it is so far from the city that one would not be inclined to make this an item sightseeing. Facilities are quite sufficient for the number of visitors on normal days but can become a limitation on weekends. overall a fine place on the city's map!!!!!!!!!

It's an average Saudi mosque. Mid-century modern architecture with a Middle Eastern twist to it. There are definitely more magnificent mosques in Jeddah than this. What is special about it is that it's located right on the Red Sea. But it's also in the far north of the city, far from the center. A good place to stop on the way to the airport or Red Sea Mall, but not worth a trip by itself. Like all mosques in Saudi, non-Muslims are not allowed to enter.

It is a mosque built on stilts in the bay. It is beautiful with a picturesque background. I wouldn't cross the city just to see it, but if you are nearby is worth walking over.

This is one of my favorite places to perform Jumua salaat.
Excellent masjid for men. Ladies section available, but my wife did complain that it was quite small and not so pleasant.
Outside seating is available for those who wish to brave the Jeddah heat and humidity.
Overall, a must see and a wonderful place to perform salaat 
