Put Doha in the rear-view mirror and journey further into Qatar. Some of the beaches here are first class: there are deep and sloping sandy banks that give way to sparkling turquoise waters. The nation has been improving access to its best beaches and having a car means that you can enjoy harder-to-reach sands. There are many activities on offer in and under the waves, including kite-surfing, scuba diving and jet-skiing.
