Celebrate Africa in Qatar this September
Enjoy African music and culture on the beach this weekend

Dance, fashion and hip-hop beats are on the agenda as Sealine Beach Resort hosts a month-long celebration of Africa.

Each Friday in September, the resort is featuring different aspects of African culture. Head along on 13 or 20 September for cultural and contemporary dance performances, a colourful fashion show, masquerades and more. Then, on Friday 27 September, the fun continues with an international DJ from Nigeria who will entertain the crowd with genuine African hip-hop tunes from dusk onwards.

If you haven’t been there before, Sealine Beach Resort is one of the best easy weekend getaway destinations in Qatar, a beautifully relaxed coastal oasis just a 45-minute drive south of Doha.

Pack your swimming gear to take advantage of the numerous beach activities on offer, such as jet-skiing, water skiing, windsurfing and snorkelling. Or, if you’re feeling like capturing a Doha moment to post on Facebook or Instagram, why not take a ride on one of the camels for hire along the beachfront?

Whatever you get up to, have a fab weekend!
