Qatar’s love for beaches remains unparalleled as it is a geographically placed in a unique position offering oceanic views on three sides. With this, the latest new beach—Ras bu Abboud beach—is a great new addition to the country’s repertoire of scenic beaches. Also known as the 974 beach, Ras bu Abboud beach has been a part of a development project by Ashghal’s Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads & Public Places in Qatar along with the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy. The beach is also set to welcome residents and fans during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ and beyond.

Main attractions

The beach is well-equipped with facilities including restaurants, kiosks, outdoor showers, and even water sport activities.
