Being a peninsula, Qatar is surrounded by the Arabian Gulf. With a vast coastline of about 700 kilometres, the country has many places or marinas where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful waters.
These marinas provide neatly laid paths that act as walking and leisure spaces to enjoy the breezy evenings or even a jog! The ILoveQatar.net (ILQ) has compiled a list of these places to explore. Check them out!
The Lusail Marina Promenade is a long strip with neatly laid paths, palm trees and water fountains. You can spend ample time here looking at the water, kids can have fun strolling and playing around, and you can also check out a food district or a drive-thru called the Lusail Marina Food Arena while you're there!
