Zikreet Fort ruins

This fort ruin lies on the Zikreet beach, some 6 km off Doha – Dukhan highway. To reach this fort, follow Doha – Dukhan Highway until you see Zikreet interchange sign, about 7 km before Dukhan. Turn right and follow 5.5-km asphalted road (measured from roundabout at turnoff) straight all the way to a village (marked by a mosque on the left and Arabic tents on the right). Continue your driving beyond asphalted road and follow any one of the (desert) tracks that lead you to the fort ruins. The ruins are located about 100-200m from the shore.
