Are there any beaches in or around Doh? Public or only Hotel ones?

Dear November is a better timing to visit doha in terms of climate.
About your visa it depends on your nationality or the passport you are holding!
There are beaches for public, as in ( Wakra, Umsaeed , Dukhan ) are cities where you can enjoy the beach! even in Doha you can go to nearby intercontinental hotel area and use the beach over there.. people swim and some rent scooters as well :)

I will be in Doha in September during Ramadan. While not Muslim, I don't want to offend anyone. Can you tell me what not to wear? Since it will be hot, can I wear shorts? Can my husband wear shorts? What about sleeveless tops or tops with small sleeves? Will any restaurants be open after sundown?
Thanks so much for any help you can give me!!
Ramadan should be obeserved by the end of this week or beginning of next.
Re: Dressing. Apparently there has been some talk of authorities getting stricter on dress codes for women this year ... but nobody really knows. In any case, I'd definitely avoid any strapless tops and any bottoms that's above the knees. I reckon cap sleeeves will be alright as long as the top itself doesn't reveal too much cleavage.
It is not advisable for men to wear shorts but in all probability there will be some expats who will do that anyway.
Most restaurants will be closed during the day, but come break fast time, the malls and restaurants are unusually crowded and open way past their usual closing time.
Do avoid drinking during the day in public view. If you have to, do it discreetly in some place where no one can see you. And smoking during fasting is a definite no-no as well ... unless you're doing it in the comfort of your own hotel room.
Hope this info helps.
Thanks so much! Will shops and museums be open during the day during Ramadan? At what time would restaurants open for the break fast? I really appreciate your help!!
