Al Hudayda (often spelt Al Hodeidah) is a small city in Yemen.

It is the principal port of Yemen on the Red Sea coast. Tourism is not a big industry, so there are relatively few facilities for visitors.

Get in[edit]

The city is located 225 km from Sana'a and 225 km from Ta'izz, 294 km from Jizan, 14 km from Al-Kathib.

There are regular flights from Sana'a, which take about half an hour. The road from Sana'a is not in good condition.

Get around[edit]


  • Mosques






There are very few good hotels in the town. The only real exception is the Hodeidah Land Resort. There are a number of small hotels in the city centre, but they are poor by any international standards.

  • 1 Hodeidah Land Resort, Off Sana'a Street. Pleasant hotel just outside the main town. Has a number of villas arranged in a circle, some of which have their own private pools. Wireless internet is available.
