Qatar Tourism announces the opening of the West Bay Beach, B12 Beach Blub and Doha Sands – three new family-friendly beach clubs located in the heart of Doha overlooking Qatar’s naturally beautiful coastline.

The beaches were officially inaugurated this week at a stylish sunset opening ceremony led by Qatar Tourism Chairman and Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, HE Akbar Al Baker and Hamad International Airport Chief Operating Officer, Engineer Badr Al Meer.


Each beach offers a host of amenities for everyone:

  • Volleyball court, purpose-built fan zone and food court (West Bay Beach)
  • 600 sun loungers, water sports activities, all-day dining and children’s playground (B12 Beach Club)
  • 1,000 sun loungers, concert stage and quick-service food outlets (Doha Sands)

With unforgettable experiences for all, the three new beaches are primed to be sought-after destinations for families and tourists during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ and beyond.  West Bay Beach, B12 Beach Club and Doha Sands additionally position Doha as a unique and desirable capital city with so many beach destination options at convenient and easily accessible locations.

HE Akbar Al Baker said they continue to expand their offerings at Qatar Tourism to cater to every kind of traveller, at every kind of budget. He said that as the country strives to welcome six million visitors a year by 2030, strong additions such as these beach destinations show the world that everyone is welcome in Qatar.

The newly inaugurated beaches fall under Qatar Tourism’s West Bay Beach Project, which sees an extensive new development in the heart of Doha covering 40,000 square metres of premium beachfront.
