An innovative interpretation of the region’s architectural heritage, this purpose-built development’s impressive theatres, galleries and performance venues stage a lively year-round programme of concerts, shows and exhibitions.

Among the most famous of these is the Doha Film Institute’s Ajyal Youth Film Festival, which takes place in November each year. The Institute also showcases a programme of indoor and outdoor film screenings throughout the year.

Visitors can also find other recreational attractions, including top class restaurants offering a variety of cuisines, and a spacious, well-maintained public beach with water sports. Visitors will also find much to enjoy over a night time stroll along the promenade, with its expansive views of Doha’s skyline, as well as a rich array of seaside food stalls and markets.

Visiting times: we would recommend tourists visit Katara between 11am-2pm and 5pm-11pm
