Sealine is a lovely, understated, low-rise resort built on a beach just south of Mesaieed. It’s far enough away from the industrial area to be unaffected by the heavy industry, and the ring of glorious amber sand dunes doubles the resort’s entertainment opportunities. The beach shelves quite steeply, allowing for good swimming, and desert quad bikes can be hired from the resort to explore the local dunes, known as the ‘singing sands’. The latter are particularly beautiful at sunset, although purists may be disappointed by myriad bike tracks that spoil the dunes’ pristine curves. Day visitors are welcome to use the hotel facilities, including pools and the beach; camel and horse rides are available; and there is a clown to entertain the children, as well as activities like face painting. Admission costs QR25 for children and QR50 for adults from Sunday to Wednesday and QR75 and QR125 respectively from Thursday to Saturday. To reach Mesaieed from Doha, follow the road past the airport and through Al-Wakrah. A taxi to the resort from Doha costs around QR200.
