The Al Wakrah Family Beach has emerged as a favourite getaway of Doha's citizens and residents, said Qatar Tribune. Ever since the Eid Al Adha festivities began, the beach ” located about 10 kilometres from Doha city and exclusively for families ” has been attracting droves of people. There are separate play areas for kids, toilets and shower facilities for visitors at the beach. Visitors could be seen swimming and playing football. A few indulged in barbequing, while some just lounged on the beach.

Speaking to Qatar Tribune, Razak, an Indian expat who visited the beach for the first time with his family, said:"We visited malls and other places on the first day of Eid Al Adha festivities. The activities were real fun. Today, we wanted to have a different kind of experience, and that's why we decided to come to the beach. At first, we had planned to visit Mesaeeid Beach but a friend informed us about the family beach. We like the experience here." 

Ehab, an Egyptian, who enjoyed barbequing, said the beach was an ideal place for barbeque because there is a free barbeque kitchen at the beach."I plan to come here more often. We have been here since 4pm and we are planning to go back home at 2am."
