Best View of the Desert and the Northeast CoastFuwairit Beach has the crystalline waters of the gulf meeting the powdery sand of the desert, making this part of the country an ideal place to capture the beauty of Qatar’s desert landscape. This beach, located sixty miles north of Doha, has a long stretch of powdery, white sand, clear blue shallow water that gets deeper very gradually, and a shoreline scattered with colorful seashells. It is a northeast-facing desert beach which makes it one of the best places in Qatar to watch the sunrise. Go for a swim, make sand castles, soak up some sun, lay on the beach, and let the gentle waters of the bay wash your worries away.
