With a very well planned area, this is definitively a place to go, you can find several attractions and temporary expositions and events that cover a wide range of interests. On the other hand, the traffic and a few unfinished/ongoing constructions may be the down side of this place.

We went there many times with kids, there's a lovely pedestrianised promenade where kids can ride their bikes. It's a nice place for a leisurely stroll. However, it can be too quiet if you like a street buzz. Also there's a luck of affordable eateries for casual dining, as most of the restaurants whilst good (e.g. Sokar Pasha) they are... More

If you are new or even a resident in Doha, you must visit Katara. It is a great place where you can enjoy the beach view and nice food. I recommend going to Katara in December until April so you can enjoy the pleasant weather. A place everyone and all ages.

If you are in Doha this is must see place. The range of restaurants means you will have a decision to make when it comes to picking which menu you want. Must SEE... and Must VISIT

In a few years when they finish this, it will be pretty spectacular. Variety of shops and restaurants and a beach (use for a fee). Nice place for a picnic or stroll. See it before it gets nuts.

Vistied on an early afternoon which was an ideal time to see the beach and the views around the coast. An array of restaurants and shops built on the traditional style are complement by an amphitheater and a nice promenade by the sea. Cultural events take place in the area as well as small exhibitions

Although you may see some similar places specifically in gulf countries, this place has been done with a special taste the I couldn't find it anywhere else. It is a must visited.

Here you will experience the wonderful results of traditional Arabic touch in an iconic architectural success. The turquoise blue beach with the middle east type finishings on your sides and the majestic theatre on the back will paint that picture that will make you miss Qatar. I am hoping to go back when the Katara project is completed
