    The Corniche is Beautiful Both During the Day and at Night
    The Corniche of Doha is beautiful and is a great place to go for a stroll. Keep in mind that it is 4 miles long stretching from West Bay to the MIA Park but you can just pick a portion and still enjoy. I think the southern half provides the best views. The skyline of Doha is stunning especially at night and can be best seen from the southern half of the Corniche. The views out to the water are also beautiful including the traditional dhow boats in the harbor. I wish we had saved time to take a dhow ride as this would have been fun and quite scenic. We visited the Corniche while in town for the World Cup both during the day and after dark. Daytime temperatures were comfortable in November. I enjoyed both times as each provided different experiences.

    FIFA World Cup 2023 - Explore Qatar
    This was an excellent experience seeing the Doha Skyline at nighttime!!! I strongly recommend this place for those travelling to Qatar and want to explore a new country. Qatar is a wonderful country to visit in the Middle East.

    Great pedestrian area stretching around the harbour. Exciting at night with everyone out and about.
    Lovely looking pedestrian area away from the road that stretches around the harbour. Walk, run, cycle and hire a scooter. There are dedicated paths but be careful and watch for people coming at you, especially at night when more people come out. Great place for families and very safe. Close to the city buildings that light up at night making the area look so exciting. Along with walkways you have green spaces for sitting or sit on the harbour wall. This is the place to also find the boat trips that run mostly at night. A few coffee shops and places to grab a snack dotted about too. Smart and clean.

    Nice Waterfront
    The Corniche is about a 6'7km long crescent shaped waterfront Road in Doha. For me, the nicest part is the area in front of Souk Waqif where you get amazing views of the Dhow Harbour and the city skyline. The best vantage point for me is the FIFA World Cup countdown Monument, a plaza that just out off the corniche out over the water. Beautiful views there by day or night.

    A Must-Visit Gem
    Doha's Corniche is a fantastic place that perfectly blends nature and modern city vibes. The long, beautiful pathway along the sea is great for walks and bike rides, and it's surrounded by well-kept greenery. You can take a break on benches, enjoy the sea breeze, and admire the stunning views of the Gulf and Doha's skyline.

    Interesting waterfront
    We visited the Corniche as a stop on the Discover Qatar tour. The Corniche is the part that faces the sea. It has livelier areas and quieter zones. You can also see the Museum of Islamic Arts. I suppose it depends on the temperature, but it seems like a pleasant place for a stroll or a run.

    Lots of things to see and do here
    Theee are lots to see and do here. One can walk along the corniche, focusing on certain areas only as it is a long area. What I did was to hire a driver and his car and we periodically stopped along the way to take pictures of various attractions such as the Pearl Monumnent, the dock where the local boats are parked, various sculptures, high rise buildings, etc. Early in the mornings and late in the afternoons are the best times to do these.

    A lovely stroll
    We loved walking the cornice and we walked from one end to the other. It was fun watching the events on the waterfront, the boats and the families out fishing. There isn’t a lot of shade so take sunscreen and a hat.

    Doha Bay's Relaxing Corniche
    Set by the beautiful Doha Bay, the Corniche in Qatar is like a peaceful oasis in the midst of city life. Stretching for miles, this waterfront spot combines modern wonders with the serene backdrop of the Arabian Gulf. Qatar's dedication to cleanliness is evident here, with well-kept paths, comfy benches, and cozy rest spots that make it a welcoming place for everyone to enjoy the beauty around them.

    Get your steps up and camera out
    I enjoyed a looooong walk along the whole corniche. There are runners and cyclists and Museums along the way with fantastic views and tourist attractions like the World Cup flags and countries with information. You can fish and take boat rides on the Dhow's and visit some parks along the way. The traffic is busy but the walkways are safe.

The Corniche in Doha, Qatar, is a beautiful waterfront stretch that offers some of the best views in the city. It's a great place to take a relaxing walk, go for a jog, or just sit and enjoy the scenery. The path is lined with green spaces, benches, and some interesting art pieces, making it a favorite spot for both locals and tourists. Whether you're there for a morning run or an evening stroll, the Corniche is a must-visit for soaking in the beauty of Doha.

Quite a lengthy walk, best done on a cool day. Spoilt at times with pesky hawkers trying to suggest the requirement of a boat or having photographs taken by them, but most were easily dissuaded by being told their offerings were unwelcome and subsequently ignored.
It provides nice views of the harbour and modern buildings.

If you see a "list of things to do in Doha" and you read something like "walk to your heart's content" on the Corniche, you might scoff a bit because it's not really like that.

You can walk by seeing the skyscrapers, of course, when the sun is losing its strength.

It is not different from many other cities by the sea.
You can just see it. It could be called something like the X coastal walkway.

My criticism is not to Doha but to those who write exaggeratedly here.

Doha is definitely a must-see city.

Lovely place to stroll, run, bike, scooter. Beaut views of the Doha skyline. See the dhows as well and/or take a ride around the harbor on one. Even in April, midday, it wasn't too hot to take a walk along the Corniche because of the sea breeze, but the sun is quite strong, so cover up or wear sunscreen.

This is a four mile long promenade along the seashore. If the weather is not too hot then it is a lovely place to take in the views and ambiance of this busy metropolis.
To reach the Corniche waters edge you need to cross over what I thought was a very busy coastal link six lane fast moving highway . There are pedestrian walkways both underground as well as at ground level assisted by traffic lights.
Paying homage to it’s past there is a huge fountain in the shape of an open oyster shell with a pearl figure. I thought that this wa worth a look see.

We were passing by, three adults stayed in the hotel for the night in one room.
The room had two beds, after check-in the staff provided another bed, the room has everything, the breakfast is good, the hotel is not far from the airport

The location of the hotel is convenient, in the evening you can visit cafes and restaurants within walking distance
