Qatar is known for its spectacular architectural marvels as well as its natural wonders. There is so much beauty here that it is highly recommended that you take a break from your busy life and visit Qatar. Even though the country is primarily a desert, after the rain it turns into a green haven.

Don’t miss out on visiting the unmatched terrains, flora and fauna mentioned below!

Ras Abrouq Rock Formations

These are limestone rock foundations sculpted by the wind and they look like gigantic mushrooms. This is a pretty isolated area, but boasts of spectacular sandy beaches and a wild deer reserve.

Dahl Al Misfir Cave

These caves have become the landmark of the Rawdat Rasid area of Qatar. This fascinating 40 feet deep cave often gives off a phosphorescent glow because of the enormous deposits of gypsum. These gypsum deposits also give rise to a geological phenomenon known as desert roses (clusters of rough rose-shaped gypsum crystals).

Al Thakira Mangroves

In the midst of the impenetrable desert lies the Al Thakira Mangrove – a burst of greenery against the shimmery desert. This large patch of vegetation attracts bird of various species including herons and flamingos. You can also kayak around the mangrove and enjoy the view.

Qatar’s Beaches

With more than 560 kms of coastline, Qatar is a beach-lover’s paradise. The water around is rich in marine life and boasts of species such as sea turtles, lion fish, dolphins and even whales. Al Ghariya, Maroona, and Fuwairit beaches offer an excellent spot for campers and picnickers.

Khor Al Adaid

The Khor Al Adaid or the Inland Sea is one of Qatar’s most impressive natural wonders. It is located about 60 kms away from Doha. This UNESCO recognised heritage site is actually a natural reserve with its own ecosystem. It is inaccessible by road and can only be reached by crossing the rolling dunes. This is also one of few places on this earth where the sea makes its way into the desert. It is also a great place to camp.

There is so much natural beauty in Qatar that you need to ensure you experience every one of them. Book your tickets well in advance and don’t forget to load your travel card. However, Qatar also boasts of easy availability of money transfer service providers, so money transfers or forex will never be an issue.

Don’t forget to pack your sunscreens and scarves to protect your head from the heat. Happy Travelling!
