When one thinks of Saudi Arabia, "beach" is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. But there's much more to the country than camels and sand dunes, and it's time we realized that. 

Saudis have taken to Twitter to remind us of the kingdom's beaches - one beach in particular. 

This morning, the Twitter hashtag #املج_اجمل_شواطي_المملكة (Umluj is the most beautiful beach in the kingdom) was trending in the Saudi kingdom, with people sharing pictures of the beautiful Umluj beach in Tabuk, northwestern Saudi Arabia.

Here is why Saudis think Umluj is the kingdom's most appealing beach: 

It's hard to resist taking a picture of the ever-dramatic skies

Yup, definitely Instagram material

Palm trees in all their glory

Greece or Saudi Arabia?

The perfect spot for a day out

Bring your bikes!

Pack your snorkeling gear

And try some nature-inspired stunts

It will definitely get you saying "Take me back to Umluj"

Umluj has tough competition, though

It's far from being the only fascinating beach in the kingdom ...
