Purple Island

Did You Know?

Although Qatar is a desert, it has a diverse range of flora and fauna. Purple Island is an example of this. Located 40km from Doha near the town of Al Khor, Purple Island is a fish-shaped island dotted with several low limestone cliffs throughout it and a mangrove forest that has a range of fish, shellfish as well as birds, including pink flamingoes which transit through Qatar during their seasonal migration
