Less than 15 minutes away by boat, Palm Tree Island (Al Nakhil) is essentially a sandbar in the middle of Doha Bay. This retreat is best enjoyed by visitors relaxing on its gorgeous beaches with a cold drink in hand and a barbecue in the making. The island also boasts beautifully landscaped gardens, good restaurants and no traffic! Kids will love a visit to Palm Tree Island, where they will be allowed to run around and play in the sun and the surf, and adults can venture further from shore or enjoy jet skis and other water sports. A wonderful Doha tourist attraction for families, be sure to plan at least one daytrip to Palm Tree Island while on holiday in Qatar.
