Surrounded by water on three sides, Qatar is a peninsula in the Arabian Gulf with its only land border existing at the southern end where Qatar meets Saudi Arabia. The entire county is approximately 240 kilometres from north to south, and less than 160 kilometres wide.
Qatar enjoys sunshine just about everyday of the year. The average temperatures during the summer range from 42°C during the day and 18°C at night, while winter temperatures are 34°C during the day and 10°C at night.
Swimming in the Arabian Gulf or in the many hotel pools, water sports, desert and city tours, shopping – a perfect location for visitors to soak up the sunshine. Once the sun sets, go star-gazing in the clear night sky, enjoy a moonlight stroll along the Corniche, or view the skyline from Doha Bay on a traditional dhow.
This clean and pristine environment offers visitors ideal conditions to completely unwind and enjoy their time in Qatar.
