Tired of malls and busy city. It’s time to get some sand Habibi!
And when you say adventure in desert, you would definitely thought about sand dunes! and Qatar have it, in Mesaieed aka Sealine.
FACTS ABOUT QATAR SAND DUNES:
- Qatar’s sand dunes is located in the southern portion of Mesaieed. However, people used to call it sealine, though the “sealine: word is actually a beach resort.
- Did you know that the dunes on the eastern coast are known as ‘singing sands‘ because of the sounds they produce . (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesaieed)
THINGS YOU SHOULD BRING WITH YOU:
It would be advisable if you have your own car for your convenience, If you’re new in Qatar you have probably noticed that everyone has their own cars. Public Utility Vehicles are not mainstream in GCC countries.
If you are planning to go, you should at least be with your friends and family. I went there 2 days ago, from Doha to Sealine it took us around 20-30 mins. It was around 5 p. m. and the weather was pretty much perfect.
You could also rent quad bikes, four wheel drives , Atv’s and 4×4 SUV’s and of course camel ride.
Of course who would forget their cellular phones? two reasons are enough!
B. Picture/Video taking- Being fascinated is not enough at least bring home with you captured memories of breathtaking view and experience.
3. WATER and FOOD
If you would be staying for long, especially during the summer, do not forget to bring with you snacks and tons of water. Stay Hydrated Habibi!
But if you haven’t bring anything, there’s a grocery store just right beside the Sealine Beach Resort.
4. EXTRA CLOTHES
For sure you would want to feel the sand and the salt water around, just to make sure bring with you extra clothes just in case you got showered with sand or you suddenly decided to dip in the water.
5. WEAR SLIPPERS
If you think wearing heels would make you look good, I swear i would be laughing at you. Get yourself a comfortable slippers/flip flop so could walk freely over the sand.
6. BRING SUNBLOCK
Do not forget to bring sunblock. Though its not necessary if you are going there at night, I still recommend this based from my own experience, my face got really dry the next day and it was bit flaky later on.
7. There are no bathroom facilities so be prepared
So yeah, that’s the basic thing you just need to remember before going there, and it would vary depending on the circumstances.
