Banana island are u sure.
Banana Island? Haven't heard of such a place.Is it in Qatar?
If someone knows about it, do share it with me
Banana Island is an apparently artificial island created during dredging of Doha Port many years ago, and is being eroded gradually now.
Its about 3 km East of the Northern tip of the new airport on the right hand side of Doha Port. Nothing special really, just a recognisable spot in a featureless sea. Main advantages are that you can swim without a large audience in deep water.
Banana Island is a few KMs out to sea from Doha - you can still see the new airport development from the Island. You'll be able to find it on Google Earth/Maps.
It's a tiny, curved island. Nice for swimming. There's no entertainment there, though they have put up lots of parasols/umbrellas and provided bins. It can get busy during peak times such as holidays.
