5 Fun-filled Things to do in Doha with Kids – A Family Getaway Like No Other!

Wondering if the kids will have much to do on a holiday to Doha? The good news is that the capital of Qatar does in fact, cater to the entire family with plenty to see, do and experience!


Have Fun at Aqua Park Qatar

Here's a great place to beat the heat and have a thrillingly good time while doing so! One of the most popular family attractions in Doha, Aqua Park Qatar was in fact, the country's first waterpark. It caters to both the young and the young at heart with plenty of slides, rides and play areas for all to enjoy. Among the highlights are the Boomerango, Stingray Surfing, Space Boat and the Pirates Bay aquatic play area. There are even a lazy river and a huge wave pool that provide more family fun.


Explore the Corniche

Covering a seven-kilometre stretch along Doha Bay, the Corniche is an ideal place to take the kids. The promenade area which is within easy reach of budget and 5 star hotels in Doha, is particularly popular with families though other parts are worth exploring too. One of the activities you can engage in is kite flying (depending on the conditions), while you will find play areas for kids too. Al Bidda Park and Rumaila Park can also be accessed as well as the Museum of Islamic Art, a great site to take older kids, especially those interested in art.


Engage in Water Sports

For the family who likes to take part in active pursuits, there are plenty of water sports in Doha to engage in. Banana boating is a fun activity the whole family can enjoy while heading out on double kayaks is a great way for parents and kids to share an adventure. Some properties the likes of Banana Island Resort Doha by Anantara offer unique experiences such as surfing at a surf pool with customisable waves! Other water sports to try include wakeboarding, stand-up paddleboarding, parasailing, windsurfing and water skiing.


Spend Time at Katara Beach

A part of the Katara Cultural Village, this public beach can be found in the heart of the city; it is an ideal place to soak up the sun, play games in the sand and spend a fun day out as a family. Well-known for the various water sports it has to offer, the beach even has inflatable play structures for kids. You will also find many restaurants and cafes close by providing all the drinks and food you will need.


Unwind at Aspire Park

One of the popular parks in Doha, Aspire Park is another family favourite. Located close to the 330-metre tall Aspire Tower, this expansive park covers an area of around 88 hectares and has plenty of space for a relaxed stroll or a family game of tag! There are areas for picnics along with playgrounds for kids and even cafes when in need of refreshments or a bite to eat. One of the key highlights at Aspire Park is its idyllic lake which attracts a variety of birdlife as well.
