To truly become an important tourist destination, Qatar must overhaul its many beaches, the Central Municipal Council has said.

Trash, pollution and inaccessibility due to a large number of rocks are among the biggest reasons families steer clear of local beaches, officials told Al Watan.

The changing demographic of visitors also plays a role, council member Said bin Ali al Marri said. Qatar Tribune translates:

“The country’s urban growth has led to an increasing number of expatriates, especially singles to visit beaches in Al Wakrah and Mesaieed for entertainment, making citizens and families more reluctant.”

In Al Wakrah, the smell of dead fish constantly washing ashore – especially near the fishing port – has also become a nuisance.

Despite these conditions, the summer heat typically prompts thousands of Qatar residents to pay a visit to the shore, whether that be in Simaisma, Dukhan, Shamal, Fuwayrit, or of course, Sealine.

To make their visits more enjoyable – and attract more Qataris to the beaches – CMC members recommended adding trash bins to high-traffic areas and devising a beach development plan.
