Much if the province's territory is used for olive and date farming; the Wadi Sarhan area in particular is known for its high concentration of fertile farmlands. Lush greenery starts to disperse the closer one travels towards the An Nafud desert, where an abundance of activities awaits - from camping out in the sands to catching the morning rays of the rising sun to engaging in exotic desert sports such as sand surfing and duning, riding camels and jeep racing. Among the most sought-after historic sights of Al-Jawf are the Za'abal Castle and Al-Dhel’ quarter of Sakakah, as well as the open-air ruins of Dumat Al-Jandal and the mysterious rocks of Al-Rajajil, whose original designation remains unknown to this day. Those looking to explore the region's fauna may find the Hurrat Al Hurrah Reserve of particular interest - located on migratory birds' natural migration path, the area is a real find for bird-watchers.
The province's two major cities of interest are conveniently located only a few kilometers away from each other. Sakakah, the capital, borders on Dumat Al-Jandal (an ancient open-air town of ruins) in the north-west. In Sakakah, do not miss the panoramic views from atop Za'abal Castle, and possibly make time for a trip to Dumat Al-Jandal lake located nearby.
The cultural environment in Saudi Arabia is highly conservative. Religious law forbids the sale or consumption of alcohol throughout Saudi Arabia, so there are no bars or nightclubs. Instead evening social activities are centred on shopping or dining out in one of the region’s many restaurants or cafés whilst indulging in a delicious mocktail (a mix of fresh fruit juices) or strong Arabic coffee.
Like most Saudi destinations, Al-Jawf Region is home to authentic markets where bargaining is most welcome as well as fixed-price stores and boutiques. When in the area, do not miss Aljouf Plaza located in Sakakah - it is the province's largest shopping center and event venue. Local crafts to shop for include Badu weaving, rugs, carpets, and, of course, olives and products made of olive derivatives.
