The Pearl-Qatar is 32 kilometers of new coastline extending into the Persian Gulf. It is so named because Doha began as a pearl fishing village in the 1800s. The Pearl-Qatar is built on one of the country’s historical pearl diving sites.
Construction of the Pearl-Qatar began in 2004. Once completed, it will contain over 19,000 residences that will include townhouses, luxury apartments, beachfront homes, luxury hotels, shopping, fine dining, marinas, and entertainment.
The string of nine artificial islands to the east is called Isola Dana. These private islands each have a personal beach and protected harbor for yachts. Based on the 2019 image, it appears that so far four of these islands have been developed.
