Film City
Qatar's Film City In the desert of the Brouq or Zekreet peninsula, not far from the sea, you'll find a real ghost town. It is a purely artificial city. It was built for an Arabic TV series. Wildlife in the neighborhood (Oryx and ostriches) is one of the most picturesque places to discover.

Zekreet Beach
Zekreet fort Qatar The landscape of the Zekreet peninsula has a unique and fascinating geology. Salt flats, rocks and open desert plateau dominate this scenery. There are no sand dunes here, weird rock formations and great views over the blue waters of the gulf.

The BirZekreet limestone escarpment is a desert bleachy, the blustery has a seductive rocks, revealing pillars, big limestone mushroom and weird shapes as it projects from cliffs. The beach is located in the heart of the city and is close to the beach. The beach rocks with natural curves give us a concept of meticulous carving done by some great artist.
