Qatar has 563 kilometres of great sandy coastline, and this means Qatar has a lot to offer by way of sun and sand. Beaches in Qatar are great for getaways, especially during the weekends.

We decided to list five beaches in Qatar that you must visit.

So, here is our top five:

Khor Al Adaid

An inland sea to the south of Qatar, Khor Al Adaid has got a stunning beach with crystal clear water. However, Four-wheel-drive vehicles are necessary, and only experienced drivers should attempt the journey. Local tour operators also organize day trips and overnight camps in the area.

We recommend that you go there in multiple groups. If you know the terrain quite well, then nothing is stopping you from going alone!

Al Farkiah Beach- Al Khor  

Al Farkiah beach is located 44 kilometres away from Doha and it is in the municipality of Al Khor. One of the best features of this family beach is that it is close to the Mangroves.

In addition, you can also explore a few coral spots around the beach and spot a few fishes too.

However, the beach has a lot of muddy terrains, so do not forget to take spare clothes along with you. The greenery and unique location are worth a visit.

Fuwairit Beach

This beach affords an unusual sight of eroded hills meeting the water’s edge. The area has a fine sandy bay with coves that make good picnic spots. Also, look out for the beautiful and picturesque eroded hills in unusual formations. They make for great photographs during sunset.

Zekreet Beach

If you were prepared for a long 4x4 GPS drive to a beach, this is the place. Surrounded by stunning limestone formations, crystal clear but salty water, and perfectly clean beaches.

Absolutely no facilities. Get everything you need.

Al Ghariya Beach

Historically the location of a desert camp for the country’s scouting movement; this beach is now a common weekend getaway for campers. There is a beach resort as well as a popular sandy beach to the north.

You may not need a 4x4 SUV for this one, which makes it all the more convenient for many.
