Al Thakhira Reserve


Al Dakhira was designated as a natural reserve in accordance with Decision No. 6 for the year 2006. Located in northeast Qatar, 64 kilometers from Doha, the reserve’s marine section includes the small island of Um Far and natural mangroves, while the land part consists of gravel pits (Hammad), sabkhas (salt and calcareous) and valleys. The reserve has rich marine biodiversity and Avicenna/Avicenna marina evergreens. It is almost the only place where trees grow naturally.
