The Best View of the Desert
The Bir Zekreet area, located on the west coast of Qatar, 60 miles from Doha, boasts a landscape of prehistoric sites, geological formations and miles of unspoiled beach. The beach borders a picturesque half-moon bay flanked by an eerie escarpment with striking limestone mushroom-shaped geological formations. And if this weren’t enough to appreciate the beauty of the Qatari desert, a few minutes away from the escarpment and in the middle of nowhere, like a hallucination, stands Film City, an abandoned film set, that looks like a ghost town out of a Western movie.
