Saudi Arabia Satellite Map

Saudi Arabia occupies an area of 2,149,690 square kilometers (830,000 sq mi) and is the 13th-largest state in the world. In comparison, it’s smaller than Algeria but larger than Iran. The landscape is one of the driest in the world.

For example, this includes Rub’ al Khali in the southeastern part of the country, which is the world’s largest contiguous sand desert. But it’s a mix of salt flats, gravel plains with a few lakes, wadis, and permanent streams. Less than 7% of Saudi Arabia is suitable for arable land.

It lies between 16°N and 33°N latitudes so the climate is mostly arid and semi-arid along its southwest coast. Overall, the temperature is hot during the day and low at night.
