The Qatar Peninsula in the Persian Gulf is quickly growing into a desert adventures heaven with several incredible dunes for sand surfing, dune bashing, and camel riding. The so-called “Inland Sea” is the most popular spot for sandboarding, with majestic sandhills facing the Arabian Sea.

Qatar is also one of the few places where you can experience sandboarding on singing dunes, of which only a handful exist in the entire world. If you are visiting or living in Qatar, you can’t miss the experience of going on a desert safari tour with sandboarding.

Khawr al Udayd is a settlement and inlet of the Persian Gulf located in Al Wakrah Municipality in southeast Qatar, on the border with Saudi Arabia. It is known to local English speakers as the “Inland Sea“. This location is a true hidden gem with sand dunes spilling into the waters of the Arabian Sea.

Makes for some incredible sandboarding rides with spectacular views and is one of the most suggestive adventure sports in the country. Khor Al Adaid is sited about an hour’s drive south of Doha.

Qatar is one of the few countries in the world where you can find “singing” or “booming” sand dunes, a rare natural phenomenon that causes the shifting sand of the dunes to make a very audible sound.

The dunes “sing” on very windy days when the sand is completely dry, so it’s best to avoid visiting the place when the weather is humid and for a few weeks after rain. Sandboarding on these dunes can also facilitate this acoustic phenomenon as it causes sand particles to vibrate. There is a group of crescent-shaped sand dunes located approximately 40 km southwest of Doha.

Now here's a thing, sandboarding in Qatar isn't just a lively desert experience but it's a lot more than that. In fact, this is an activity that can be much more fun than one can possibly imagine. Wondering what makes it better in Qatar?

Well, the nation is home to some of the world's most amazing desert landscapes which provide perfect conditions for travelers to come and enjoy the activity. So, if you're planning to enjoy sandboarding in Qatar, well, there's no reason to think twice.
