Entry to Katara Beach is now permitted on the purchase of a ticket, according to a notification by Katara - the Cultural Village Foundation.

The ticket prices vary depending on the age of visitors. These are as follows: QR50 for those aged 18 years and above, and QR25 for those aged 7 to 18 years. Entry is allowed for free for visitors aged below 7 years.

The rule, which was announced on social media, came into effect on Saturday.

The announcement came following the reopening of some of Katara's beach facilities on July 1 as part of the gradual lifting of Covid-19 restrictions in the country.

Katara had stressed that its beaches had been duly prepared to welcome visitors while taking into account the necessary health precautions and measures such as social distancing as well as disinfection of boats.

It has provided 130 sitting spots on Beach 3, 100 on Beach 4 and 50 on Beach 5. Each sitting place can accommodate up to six persons with a space of 3m between each spot. Swimming is allowed on beaches 3 and 4 until sunset. The jet ski ramp will be operational for personal jet skis from Monday, from 3pm until sunset.
