2-Hour Doha Corniche Walk and Dhow Cruise
Ranked #3 of 111 things to do in Doha
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We walked the Corniche from Dhow Harbour to Downtown Doha (the skyscraper bit) in March.It's about 4 kms. There are lots of boats who will take you on a 1 hour trip around the harbour and up close to the skyscrapers.We paid QR250 for 3 of us and it was well worth it (You need at least 15 people to hire a Dhow).Trouble is we got pestered by every other boat owner on the Corniche after we got off.There are kids play areas and outdoor gym equipment as you go around the bend and a restaurant just before you reach the skyscrapers. There are also toilets and a water vending machine (just QR1 a bottle).The skyscrapers are nearly all empty and there are no ice cream or drinks stalls in that bit, or anywhere to eat or drink that is (apart from the expensive hotels).But we killed a good afternoon there.

Corniche is the heart of Doha city. It has more than 5km walking stretch. There is a childrens park at the end and the Al Bida Park is just opposite of the Corniche. There is sufficient parking available along the Corniche road. I advise do not miss the place while you are in Doha.

Great for long stroll, lots of joggers, you can see the amazing Doha skyline and watch the old boats out in the water. You will see the fishing trawlers as well. You can take a boat to Palm island for 25QAR per person. Sunset is amazing here especially with the skyline

If you want to walk or even run for exercise, this is awesome place. Also classical old boat ride if you want to enjoy a slow moving boat to see water around you.

Still more can be done by building small snack bars around. Do not miss it
