A lunar-like landscape of limestone rock formations sculpted by the wind, Qatar’s west coast offers plenty of interest for both tourists and residents. The visually arresting area around Zikrit and the isolated Ras Abrouq peninsula is noted for its unspoiled sandy beaches, wild deer reserve and haunting lunar-like landscape of limestone rock formations sculpted by the wind into mushroom shapes.

Visitors may want to climb the rock formations for a better view of the Qatari peninsula. The area is also a popular spot with those who wish to enjoy picnics or camp overnight to take pictures of a spectacular sunrise or sunset.
