VISIT PURPLE ISLAND /-a-t-/ AL KHOR
PLAN ONE DAY OUTING TO PURPLE ISLAND - AL KHOR -QATAR
Drive to Al Khor
Go through pass Al Khor town, following the signs to Al Thakhira (nearby town). You will pass second last roundabout (Rasgas/Industrial Area R/A) that branched left to Ras Laffan. Go through to Al Thakhira.
Pass the first right turn sign-posted to Al Khor Hospital, continue towards Al Thakhira.
The last roundabout is giving you access to Al Khor Community. Ignore this and continue in the direction of Al Thakhira.
At about 2.5km from Rasgas R/A, take the right-hand turn, and go about 5.2 kilometers following this asphalt road. You’ll see on your right a big water tank tower, part of Al Khor Community, with Qatargas and RasGas logo.
At the intersection to the left, ignore this and go further 200m to find out turn-off to off road leading to the island. At the moment there is a small board indicating signage to Flower Each Spring camp.
Follow firm and obvious track encircle mangrove area. As you’re approaching the island causeway you will find one big building on your left.
Approximately 2 kilometers from asphalt road turn-off you will arrive at the start of causeway. Park your car here or a further few meters. If you arrive at Flower Each Spring camp, you’ve gone too far. The causeway is on your rear-right.

Is it ok to have picnic here?
This is awsome place! with the mangroves and the water.. felt like being back home! Kids enjoyed playing with water. We even caught some shrimps, which did not last a day after bringing back to doha!
Nothing much on the island! just for a fun walk and hangout!
well.. it will not be ideal in hot summer!
During summer it is not exactly okay, as u need to walk quite a distance with kids it is bit difficult, but depends on person to person,
is it fine to visit in summer?
cars will also survive no need of 4 X 4 vehicle.
ordinary car will survive...
Is this area only accessible with 4x4?
