The first time we tried to visit The Pearl in 2010, we were on a Mitsubishi L-200 4×4 (a pick up truck as they are called) and to our dismay, we were not allowed by the guard to enter the gate as pick up trucks are not allowed in this most glamorous address in Doha.
The Pearl is a Riviera-style man-made island developed in an exclusive environment in Doha,Qatar. The name “The Pearl” was chosen because the island was located on one of Qatar’s previous major pearl diving sites. It is the first land in Qatar to be available for freehold ownership by foreign nationals.
It has the world’s longest waterfront luxury retail walkway, a 3.5 kilometer marina-front pedestrian boardwalk “La Croisette”, which homes the international hospitality brands and high-end boutiques.
