What’s the Purple Island:

  • A mere 45-minute' drive from Doha, located near Al Khor.
  • In the past, Purple Island in Qatar was used as a fishing & pearl diving site by the local people of Qatar.
  • The name of the island is due to the fact that it was used as a dye production site which was purple from the shells of murex snails on the island.
  • The history of Purple Island dates back to the second millennium BC
  • A gateway to tranquillity where one can unwind and relax away from the city’s liveliness. Amidst a natural serene setting
  • Offers utmost satisfaction to all the nature lovers for seclusion & to spend some time away from noisy city life.
  • Green in colour, which is quite contrary to its name & surrounded by stunning greenery and exotic wildlife, including fossils.
  • A blissful ambience with abundant mangroves makes this place nature’s delight and perfect to spend a day in the lap of nature.
  • The best time to visit is at high tide.
