One of the top travel locations in Qatar for tourists and locals alike is Khor Al Adaid, often known as the 'Inland Sea.' One of only 3 locations in the world where the sea and sand dunes meet is Khor Al Adaid beach. Its lagoon system is unmatched anywhere else on the globe. This large tidal embayment is connected to the Arabian Gulf by a 10-kilometer-long, deep, and narrow waterway. Both Saudi Arabia and Qatar share the embayment, which has shorelines in both nations. 

People familiar with the location know that it is a haven of peace, adventure, and leisure. Its natural beauty is undisturbed and unadulterated. People who have been there once frequently return. 

When the weather becomes cooler and winter arrives, Khor Al Adaid is at its most picturesque. The best time to visit this Qatari landmark is from November through April.
