5 beaches in Qatar to visit on Eid 2022
Eid- Al-Fitr 2022 is all set to be a much joyous and widely-enjoyed event in Qatar. With relaxed restrictions in all public places and a nice four-day-long holiday for nearly everyone, the festival will witness many people enjoying a myriad range of activities, including Qatar Tourism’s first-ever Eid Al-Fitr festival. However, given the still bearable and pleasant weather, families are also gearing up to head to their favorite beaches with family and friends for a day away from the city. The Ministry of Municipality (A Baladiya) has also announced the preparation of several family beaches for Eid al-Fitr celebrations. Bachelors and other corporate workers are not allowed to enter family beaches.
We’ve compiled a list of five beaches you can visit for Eid 2022 and enjoy a pleasant afternoon or evening on the Eid weekend.
Sealine beach, Mesaieed
Not only does Sealine beach offer a stunning sand-to-sea panoramic experience, but it is also a great place to watch a beautiful sunset tinged with beautiful yellow, pink, and orange gradients. This is a family beach and there are also a host of activities available for everyone. You can opt for dune-bashing, quad-biking, or even fishing post-sunset. There is also a separate section of the beach which is open to the general public including bachelors too. A great option would also be to do a barbecue evening with your loved ones.

There is ample parking space and all the necessary facilities of toilets, showers, BBQ stands, and even a playground for children make it an ideal spot for a beach escape.
Dukhan public beach is situated on the western coast of Qatar and is nearly 80 km from the heart of Doha.
