The Qatari desert is a landscape of surreal beauty. The rolling sand dunes of Qatar's desert offer a striking beauty and serve as a popular destination for recreational safaris or to experience the breathtaking landscape. These dramatic dunes create an unparalleled backdrop.
The desert holds a significant place in the local culture and offers a surprising variety of activities. Whether you prefer a relaxing time in a tent, an exciting dune ride, or the exhilaration of parasailing, the desert is far from dull.
The remarkable 'Inland Sea,' also known as Khor Al Adaid and recognized by UNESCO, can be found to the south of the city. It stands as one of the few places on Earth where the sea encroaches into the desert. Surrounded by vast expanses of sand, this tidal embayment system is home to a range of native and protected plant and animal species, including ospreys, dugongs, and turtles.
