Khor Al Adaid
About 35 miles south of Doha, lies ones of Qatar’s most impressive natural wonders, Khor Al Adaid or the Inland Sea. A UNESCO recognized natural reserve with its own ecosystem, this is one of the few places in the world where the sea encroaches deep into the heart of the desert. Inaccessible by road, it can only be reached by 4x4 vehicle across rolling dunes. While here, visitors can try dune bashing, camel riding, sand boarding, watch the dramatic desert sunset, enjoy a moonlit barbeque under the stars or even overnight in a Desert Camp.
