Al Raha Canal Route

In the Al Rahah beach area, there’s a pleasant path along Al Raha Creek that makes for a nice run of 11-12 km out and back. There are numerous shopping centers in the area, but the route along the water is fairly scenic.

At the eastern end, start at Waitrose supermarket. It’s 3 km to Al Bandar Island and nearly 6 km to the Al Raha Beach Hotel. One can also take short jaunts out to the several islands that are right off the path, connected by short pedestrian bridges.

Essentials
  • Up to 11-12 km out and back, depending on length chosen
  • Fairly flat
  • East End: Waitrose Supermarket; West End: Al Raha Beach Hotel
