  5. Umm Al-Qamari Island, known as Saudi Arabia's natural reserve, is managed by the national center for wildlife development. The island got its name from the large number of gambling birds that may be seen during the migration season. The migration season is when birds begin flocking in February of each year, lay eggs until they hatch in March and May, and then continue their migration to the African coast in the summer months after caring for new chicks.

    During fishing trips, Qunfudhah inhabitants consider the island to be a notable destination. It takes 45 minutes to drive from Qunfudhah city to the coast. Many coral reefs dot the island, diversifying the abundant fish population. The white sand that identifies the island is tinted by the shoreline that is carried by the waves and thrown on the coast.

    The island's marine organisms, birds, and plants form an important ecosystem. Birds such as the eagle rely on the fish that swim in the island's seas for sustenance, while vegetation provides a perfect environment for building bird nests. There are numerous huge nests strewn about on trees and ledges. Furthermore, Umm Al-Qamari Island is regarded as an outstanding location for the diversity of natural life.
