PUBLIC PLACES in DOHA
To reach this beach, take the Al Shamal (North) Road past the Al Khor turnoff and after 44 km, turn right at the Fuwairit sign; follow the road leading to a small village and as you reach the outskirts, turn left onto a rough track. Drive for 1.5 km along the small dune bordering the beach until you reach the unusual formations of eroded hills (jebel) that run down to the water’s edge. These small ‘cliffs’ border a fine sandy bay with coves that make ideal picnic spots. The strange shapes in the rock face, resembling Gruyere cheese, make for great photos.
