The Inland Sea & the Desert

Sands & Water: LIFE !

Khor Al Adaid, also know as The Inland Sea, is one of Qatar’s greatest scenic treasures and is one of our top 10 places to visit in Qatar!!!

Here, the Persian Gulf has cut into Qatar’s southern landmass, separating Qatar from Saudi Arabia.

After the 10-kilometre-long inlet, two fantastically beautiful tidal sasins open up, with crescent-shaped, dazzling white sandy dunes reaching for the sky long their shores.


Desert rose is the same given for formations of crystal clusters made of gypsum or baryte and sand grains. The crystals form a circular array of flat plates, giving the rock a shape similar to a rose in full bloom.

The beauty of the desert rose lies in its multiple natural petals that grow in different directions to create unique light reflections. 

The interlocking disc of the National Museum of Qatar, currently under development, is inspired by the desert rose ‘natural crystal clusters.
