Go Kayaking
This white mangrove forest is accessible by kayak from the Al-Thakira Marina in the northern town of Al-Khor. This network of channels is home to an unexpected variety of birds, including flamingos and a new species of sea slug. It’s an easy paddle accessible to the inexperienced and with the reward of a stop at a mangrove secluded beach. Entalek ( and Paddle Qatar ( are two eco-adventure tour companies offering organized mangrove kayaking expeditions.
