Doha’s longest hotel private beach is right here (400m long). The health club wet area includes an inhalation room and an infra-red room. This beach is popular for water sports such as jet-skiing, kayaking and speed-boating. There are not one, but four outdoor pools and two additional pools for children.

Walk on the beach and then take a dip in the pool. It’s beautifully constructed and it’s perfect for a whole day of chilling. There are amazing restaurants such as Mykonos to grab a bite at when you want a break.

Sheraton Grand Doha
The beach views from Doha’s iconic landmark are pretty stunning. And there have been times when they’ve installed an inflatable water park and obstacle course. Just saying. There’s a pool café called Pool Café (very original) for relaxed lunches with lush landscaping and crystal blue waters on the horizon.

Right across a smooth stone deck is The St. Regis’ Olympic-size swimming pool, also the biggest pool in Doha, with sprawling beach views.
