Khor Al-Adaid is a dramatic tide and coast system located in southeastern Qatar.

Also known as “The Inland Sea,” the region represents a remarkable landscape made up of large mobile dunes, a tidal embayment system, recently discovered “salt hummocks”, stony deserts, elevated mesas, rocky outcrops, and other geological features.

The scenery in this largely uninhabited area is enhanced by diverse native terrestrial flora and fauna alongside a varied and sensitive marine ecosystem that includes turtles, dugongs, and other species.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.

Unusual Local Feature

Unique Lagoon System

World Heritage Sites says: “Khor Al-Adaid area, also known regionally as the ‘Inland Sea', is located in the south-east of the State of Qatar. The area presents a remarkable landscape formed by a globally unique combination of geological and geomorphological features. These features themselves create a diverse scenery of exceptional, undeveloped natural beauty, in what remains predominantly a ‘wilderness area'. Each landscape unit on its own, notably the Arabian Gulf, large mobile dunes, the tidal embayment system, inland and coastal sabkha, recently discovered "salt hummocks", stony deserts, elevated mesas and rocky outcrops, as well as the transition between each of them, contribute to the unique character of Qatar's southern territory.”
Ocean Wildlife
This is a largely uninhabited area, defined by diverse native terrestrial flora and fauna alongside a varied and sensitive marine ecosystem. The diverse water quality and bottom substrates create an exceptional variety of aquatic and semi-aquatic habitats of considerable importance for some endangered marine species, particularly turtles and dugongs.
