Excellent facilities such as gazebos and umbrellas provide welcome shade; children’s playgrounds keep the little ones busy, while a volleyball court, a soccer pitch, restrooms and barbecue facilities make the journey from Doha worthwhile. Play ball, fly a kite, or simply stroll along the wide beach which starts off golden in colour and gets lighter and softer as you approach the sea.

The shallow water makes the beach area safe for children. They will enjoy seeing a crab or three in the sand, feeling tiny fish swimming around their toes and finding plenty of seashells to chuck in their bucket.

Highlights of your visit

  • Beach facilities

  • Playgrounds

  • Exquisite views

Behind the beach there is a promenade lined with restaurants and cafés. Choose from traditional Arabic cuisine, Indian, Italian, American or more. Alternatively, bring your own supplies and enjoy a beach barbecue.

There are several reasons why Al Wakrah has become one of the most popular family beaches for Qataris and tourists. Offering a laid-back ambience and delightful vistas, it is a magical escape from city life. Come and spend quality time admiring nature and indulging in a myriad of rewarding activities.

The name Wakrah derives from the Arabic word ‘wakar’, which roughly translates to ‘bird's nest’.
