Create an itinerary including Wadi Dayqah Dam
Nature and man-made infrastructure harmoniously coexist at Wadi Dayqah Dam, which provides much of the region's drinking water. Completed in 2012, the dam collects vast amounts of the mountain rainfall, controlling the flow of water to the distant villages below. Take a picnic and sit in the lush parkland by the 8 km (5 mi) reservoir, which boasts a capacity of 100 million cu m (3.5 billion cu ft) of fresh rainwater. Drive to the 75 m (246 ft) heights of the dam for a scenic view of the surrounding amber limestone mountains and valleys. Using our international travel planner, Qurayyat attractions like Wadi Dayqah Dam can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • A quiet spot, 20KM off the main road, this picnic location has some breathtaking views. There's a simple restaurant, several park benches, and toilets. It's possible to walk over the top of the dam...

  • The dam is still closed due to covid 19 measures.
  • A good place to enjoy in fresh water below the dam and beautiful garden above the dam. A perfect place to do picnic or family outings. However the flowing water canal below the Dam has been closed for public.
