Writing specifically about Katara Beach which is located within this village. It’s a nice public beach for a dip in the Persian Gulf. This is not Ipanema so there’s a strict dress code - no speedos for guys, you’ll need board shorts or similar; no bikinis or even a one-piece for ladies, you’ll need your elbows down to your knees covered. Respect this as Qatar has a conservative dress code. Certainly guys will need to put a shirt back on when leaving the beach to go for a shower. Free for couples (for a few more days) and then there’s a QAR100 charge for guys (might not be strictly enforced - talk nicely to the attendants). Accompanied ladies and kids are free. Clean change-room with free hot showers available across the road. There are water slides and various water activities available (for a charge) which will keep the kids happy. Chairs with beach umbrellas also freely available. The beach itself has coarse white sand and is patrolled by life guards. You can swim out about a hundred meters to the perimeter buoys. During the afternoon, it was quiet probably as the sun beats down pretty hard. A few diehards were around working on their tan. I’d imagine the place gets pretty crowded towards evening. Easily accessible with Uber and there’s free WiFi throughout most of Katara Beach and the village. Restaurants and other attractions are also around and there’s a free shuttle service with golf buggies frequenting the village to get around - just hail them to stop and tell the driver where you’d like to go. Great touches and it’s worth visiting for a Doha beach experience.
