Qatar is a great place to unwind in the warm sunshine. Around the country’s coastline are many unspoiled tracts of clean sandy beach and Doha itself boasts the well-tended facilities of Katara Public Beach. 

Other notable parks include the open area at the start of the Corniche near the Sheraton Hotel and Al Bidda Park. A number of parks in Doha also come with free WiFi, outdoor gym equipment and are within close proximity of coffee shops and eateries. 

For most visitors, the hotel pool – or, in some cases, private hotel beach - is likely to be the first port of call. All major hotels have well-appointed pool areas, often in stunning garden settings with comfortable seating, the perfect place to lie back and take a well-earned break.
