This site is one of the main birding locations in the region and has good wader habitat holding the highest concentration of shorebirds along the Saudi Red Sea coast. The site is easily viewed from the cornice road and in the early morning the sun is behind the observer allowing good viewing conditions. We birded the coast from the cetre of Jizan a short distance to the south, but did not go too far due to the issues near the Yemen boarder.

The Corniche is also good for birds other than shorebirds with Black-crowned Sparrow Lark, , Spur-winged , , and Pink-backed all photographed.

The only waders photographed were and .
