Palm Tree Island
Best View of Doha from the Sea
Palm Tree Island, a sandbar in the middle of Doha Bay located a short boat ride from the city, provides unobstructed views of the corniche and its landmarks, including iconic buildings such as The Sheraton to the right and the Museum of Islamic Art to the left. There is nothing on the island to see or do. Only a palm tree, hence the name of the sandbar. But you don’t go there for entertainment, you go there for solitude and to capture the city at dusk, when Doha looks like the sun has set it ablaze before disappearing into the horizon.
