Watch the sunset while kayaking on Purple Island, Qatar, and marvel as the colors of the sun reflect off the water, with equipment and guides to help make your experience accessible.

After meeting your guides at Al Meera, in an all-terrain vehicle, you will drive up and down dunes as admire the northwest coast of Qatar. Later on, you will arrive at the Al Thakhira mangrove reserve, where, unlike the previous landscape, you will be surrounded by vegetation and a particular fauna including flamingos! If you ask in advance, you can request your guides to give you a tour of the ecology of the mangrove forest.

On Purple Island, you will have the Kayak experience, where guides will be available to teach and assist you if needed, and where an amphibious wheelchair will be at your disposal. Here you will be able to wander around on your own, take pictures and admire the scenery.

On your return, you will be taken back to the initial meeting point.
