Umm Bab (Beach)
Umm Bab (Beach)(90 km. west of Doha) — Umm Bab is also known as “Palm Tree Beach” because of the small cluster of palms at the end of the road alongside the small breakwater. From Doha, take Salwa Rd, clocking 29 km from the industrial area and passing the Mukainis satellite earth station. Turn right and follow the road for a further 40 km until you reach the roundabout at the Umm Bab cement works. Go straight across and take the right-hand fork, passing a small ‘trading store’ on your right. As you crest a small hill, you will see the coast stretched out below and the a distinctive group of trees. Most people turn left at the trees and stop a little further on. The sand is deep, so proceed with caution.
