Overview

Enjoy the majestic views of the west coast while exploring Zekreet Fort, which dates back to the late 18th or early 19th century, with four circular watchtowers for you to see an Umbrella-shaped Stone Hut nestled in its corner. Afterward, visit east-west / west-east by Richard Serra's sculpture in the desert. This breath-taking sculpture lies in Brouq's nature reserve, spanning over a kilometer and encompassing four steel plates, each standing over fourteen meters tall. Serra examined the land's topography and creatively enhanced the vast expanse in the desert to ensure a perfect alignment. It is a stunning and timeless creation.

Traveled to the west of Qatar with Amir as our guide. Fabulous experience as we move around in a nice vehicle with AC and get some nice photos of the landscapes. Amir also introduced some special features along the way, never got bored! Highly recommended if you want some different taste outside of Doha.

with Amir, trip to the West Coast
He talked about the history and interesting stories of Qatar. The journey was pleasant, except for the weather.
I experienced the natural environment of western part of Qatar. What used to be an ocean is now a desert. Blue sky but no clouds at all. The Arabian sea is although shallow but clean. Unforgettable.

West coast tour

The West Coast of Qatar is beautiful. We stoppen on our way at the Grand Mosque for pictures. We got to see the art work east wet/west east by Richard Serra near the dunes. Also the small town near Sekreet, where the wind made nice sculptures in the sand and rocks. We visiteer the beach and got to visit some Camels.
Amir was our nice guide, helpful and fun. Onasito Thiel & Angeline Thiel-Flemming from Aruba, Dutch Caribbean.
