Khor Al Udeid, Doha

4.4
#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.

  • Family retreat, a must do, sand-dune bashing, camel rides, camping, scenic views and more! I'm a local guy, so I do sand dune bashing quite often. One cannot begin to describe the trip to Khour Al-Ude...  more »
  • We hire a company a 4 x 4 trip to the desert and it was a very nice experience. At the beginning they left us at a camp where we took tea and ride a camel. More afternoon began the adventure through the desert until you reach the sea... a beautiful place since they gather the dunes with beach and on the other side you get see mountains of Sudi Arabia.

  • It seems to me a very good trip, I picked up from 14:00 and so I could see the sunset. Take you to the point where it faces already this Saudi Arabia and only a language of sea separates it. I booked directly from the double tree Hilton where I stayed and for 2 people left me by 780 Qr. The driver was called Abdullah Mohammad and driving really well through the dunes.
