Welcome to Mesaieed
An industrialised town about 45km south of Doha, Mesaieed is not particularly attractive in itself, but its surrounding landscape offers some appealing adventures. The deep water at a nearby beach makes for some of the best swimming in Qatar, while the area's dunes are what desert-buggy and 4WD adventures are made of. Divers can take a trip with a Doha-based scuba-diving company to see four sunken GMC cars, which have turned into underwater reefs. There's also one popular resort here, favoured by expats wanting a getaway from the big city.
