Very popular among Qataris and expats, dune bashing is a must-try activity in Qatar. Along the road that takes you straight to the Sealine Beach Resort are kilometres of dunes that are ideal for bashing. You’d find a stretch of quad bike stalls where you can rent one with your friends and hop on.
The waters of Gulf are home to some beautiful marine life. The Inland Sea at Udaid has an abundance of fish and is a sheltered area with small reefs.
Those looking for wreck diving should head to Al-Sharqi near Halool Island. Around the metal wreck submerged here there are lots of fish, including clown fish.
The above are just a few of the outdoor activities that you’d find in Qatar. Would you like to add any to our list? If so, drop a comment below.
