Khor Al Adaid
Khor Al Adaid is an inlet of the Persian Gulf located in Al Wakrah Municipality in southeast Qatar, on the border with Saudi Arabia. It is known to local English speakers as the “Inland Sea” and is one of just three places in the world where the sea meets the sand dunes. It has a lagoon system that is unparalleled elsewhere in the world. This big tidal embayment is connected with the Arabian Gulf and by a deep and narrow channel which is approximately 10 kilometres long.
Al Thakeera Beach
Al Thakeera Beach is located about 35-40 km from Doha and makes an ideal location for swimming, sunbathing or spending a laid-back day at the beach. The beach offers serene views of Qatar’s largest and oldest dense mangroves reserves.
There’re many benches and play areas at this location, which makes this place ideal for an excursion with your family. What’s more, at Al Thakira’s shore, you have a stunning view of one of the largest mangrove reserves in Qatar.
Fuwairit Beach is located in the city of Al Ghariya in the northeast of Qatar. The beach is famous for the turtles that lay eggs here from April to July every year, and the beach is closed to tourists during this period. The Qatar Sea Turtle Conservation Campaign was initiated by the Ministry of Environment to protect sea turtles.
For those of you who want to enjoy the clear turquoise sea of Qatar on a remote location away from the city, Fuwairit Beach is where you want to go.
Zekreet Beach (also known as Ras Abrouq Beach) is located towards the off coast of Dukkan and is about 90 km from Doha. The beach is secluded and isolated, with no paved routes or facilities, making it undiscovered by the masses.
The limestone escarpment featuring cliffs, pillars, and rocks makes the topography unusual. The sedimentary rocks along the shoreline and huge mushroom-shaped structures made from limestone offer an arresting and ethereal site
Umm Bab Beach
Umm Bab Beach is a stretch of white sand on Qatar’s western coast. The beach is often quiet or deserted because of its remote location, making it a nice spot for sunbathing or swimming.
Umm Bab is a unique palm tree beach in the west of Qatar. Strange, but local tourists are not common here. It seems that they are not excited by the opportunity to relax in the palm shadow near the sea. So this excellent beach is usually deserted, which makes it even better.
Inland Sea Beach
The Inland Sea is one of the finest places to visit in Qatar and is the spot where three sand dunes meet in the world. It has an unparalleled lagoon system in other parts of the world. This huge tidal bay is connected to the Persian Gulf through a deep and narrow channel. It is about 10 kilometers long.
The beaches at the Inland Sea are really beautiful and a popular place for tourists, visitors, and locals. You can enjoy the silky sand and crystal clear water at Khor Al Adaid. This is the ideal place for camping, stargazing, fishing, and enjoying the unspoiled desert nature.
