Behold water lovers! Qatar welcomes the good weather season with brand new beaches across the country’s best coastal shores.
Keen on a new staycation spot? Say no more! Qatar has added more beach-and-chill spots to its list with three new openings expected next month.
The latest additions come just less than two months away from the kick-off of the much-awaited FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which is expected to bring over one million visitors to the country.
Luckily, with such a high number of people comes the demand for more entertainment options, and Qatar seems to be welcoming one opening after the other ahead of the mega tournament.
New coastal spots and resorts seem to be the focus for the month of October, and here are the top openings beach-goers should keep an eye for.
Thrill: Fuwairit Kite Beach Resort
The Gulf nation is set to open its very first kitesurfing resort on its northern coast next month—and it has everything a kitesurfer needs for a perfect toeside backflip.
Located an easy hour drive north of Hamad International Airport, Fuwairit Kite Beach Resort will open with a vision of becoming a global home of kitesurfing thanks to its flat lagoon, warm water, and ideal wind conditions – for nine months of the year.
The resort has a total of 50 rooms, 32 of which boast king-size beds and eight twin beds. For those eying a family vacation, the resort offers eight interconnected rooms to accommodate families of four or five,
To top that off, 40 of the rooms have beach views, with a hammock and an outside seating area for a guaranteed relaxation experience.
For anyone looking to try kitesurfing, the resort will be providing lessons as well as the full gear for an all-inclusive experience. Since the wind in the area is ideal during this time, learning is best done between September of this year and April or May.
The resort also has a guest house, fitness centre, beach volleyball court, beach football field, yoga pavilion that can be used as an event space, and an upcoming outdoor movie theatre.
Family: B12 Beach Club
This new beach spot might be a family favourite soon enough.
