Khor Al Udeid, Doha

4.5
#1 of 20 in Outdoors in Qatar
A protected natural oasis surrounded by looming slopes of sand, Khor Al Udeid allows you to enjoy a bit of beach life in the heart of the desert. Soaring dunes reaching 40 m (131.2 ft) extend down toward a bay of azure blue waters fed by the Arabian Gulf, quietly lapping the white sand shore. A diversity of animal life populates the diverse desertscape, including the Arabian gazelle, Arabian oryx, and osprey. Explore by tour van or quad bike, or, once you get there, hop on a camel. When you need to cool down, splash into the clear, calm bay for a rejuvenating swim. There is little shade on the beach so bring an umbrella, plenty of sunscreen, and water. Put Khor Al Udeid into our Doha road trip planning tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
