Celebrate Africa in Qatar this September

Celebrate Africa in Qatar this September

12 Sep 2013

If you’re looking for something different to do this weekend, why not go to an African festival on the beach?

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!
