The Pearl-Qatar lighting up is a magical sight, like the stars lighting up the night sky. The colors are reflected in the water, shimmering and adding to the enchantment of the view.

There is no better way to end the day than to take a stroll around the Pearl Island. The stresses and strains of the day evaporate as soon as you start this gentle exercise that helps both mind and body to relax. You slow down and look all around you as you walk along the wide, open promenades which stretch out and curve round the waterside so that your perspective is constantly changing.

The flat terraces on the waterside all the way round The Pearl-Qatar make the walk easy and pleasurable - and there is so much to see and enjoy. The Venetian beauty of the architecture, the trees and the magnificent yachts moored at the marina.

To glance around the Pearl Island, is to look into the future. Who, amongst the fishermen and pearl divers in their dhows from days gone past, could have imagined that one day this Island would rise from the sea with its circle of towers reaching up to the sky?

Looking at the stunning landscape makes us want to learn more. What is the inspiration behind the design of the buildings? What are the names of the trees? But it's also a time to rest your mind and simply appreciate the stillness of the night.

The plazas attract more people now and their presence around the restaurants adds to the ambience of the Pearl. But it is still spacious and peaceful as you meander along by the water's edge and admire the elegance of the Italianate buildings.

This is the perfect time of year for walking. It's refreshing to be outside, away from the hustle and bustle of the city and the traffic, and walk along the edge of the water, cooling and calming, gently lapping against the boats and the quayside. And it's so restful that even though you only meant to go a little way, you keep walking.

And in the evening, as dusk falls, the edges of the high rise buildings set against the evening sky, soften and the colors fade and change.

The Pearl-Qatar lighting up is a magical sight, like the stars lighting up the night sky. The colors are reflected in the water, shimmering and adding to the enchantment of the view. Now you feel rested – and perhaps inclined to relax in one of the many restaurants for a warm mug of coffee or even a cold iced beverage to watch the rest of the night pass by.
