We visited Katara beach and Cultural Village as part of a city tour (with driver) that our hotel organised for us when we had to overnight in Doha due to a missed connection to Australia by Qatar airlines (late arrival from London).
The driver recommended it to us, but so doe the staff at the hotel.
The driver dropped us off, but we were collected by a young fellow in a golf buggy and he drove us around the various building and facilities (so you don't have to walk around in the heat). We were there in the early afternoon, and it was pretty hot (and consequently, the place was pretty deserted and much didn't seem to open).
You could tell that it would really come into its own in the evenings, when it was cooler.
The beach looked okay, but was empty.
Quite interesting to see. The golf buggy was a grand idea!

This place represents amazing Arab culture at its best. A beautiful beachfront location, great views, a dozen different restaurants. Recommended.

It was an awesome opportunity to see an institution putting great efforts in ensuring the world cultures are sustained. That indeed the world is a home to everyone irrespective of cultural backgrounds. The tradition helps us to forge the future by borrowing from the past, gelling with the today to forge the tomorrow.
Kudos to the home of cultural exhibitions and festivals. A place worth visiting.

Love to visit this place (and doing it often). Every month you can find nice art exhibitions of local and international artists. Katara bringing festivals (Cultural diversity, Burger festival, Coffee festival, Falcon and Hunting fest). An incredible number of activities (Music, Art, Hunting).

Katara is a park near the Pearl. It houses cultural centers and foundatons in Doha - Visual Arts Center, Qatar Music Academy, Art Center, Falconry association, and many others. In Oct 2018 Katara harbors seasonal evants and festivals - now it is Cultural Diversity Festival which will last till Mar 2019. Access is free. Jazz Festival is scheduled for Nov.
Katara accommodates several street caffees and high food restaurants. International cuisine is offered. In good weather restaurants offer open air tables and tents at sea front. The visitors may opt for short boat trip on dhow. Family beach is open until sunset. Only families are admitted.
The complex is attarctive for its architechture that simulates old oriental city lost in desert. Streets are shodowed with tents to protect visitors form sun.

To enjoy the place, visit in winter. The village is built along the sea. The architecture is taken from the Qatari old culture. The wide walking area and nice sea view is remarkable. Many local and international events are organized there. Whatever food you like, you will find a resturant or kiosk. It is a place for everyone to enjoy, relax and has good experience.

We wanted to check out the Al Jazeera experience at the Al Jazeera Media Cafe, which appeared to offer some experiences with the AJ operation.

There was an empty studio but the overall impression was that nothing was happening, we saw only two patrons in an empty and dank facility. The souvenir shop offered a sparse and unimpressive range of goods.

We drove around the complex and can only say that, like its website, the whole operation is “under development.”
