Galactic Core Bay has an unhindered view of the water, making it perfect for sunset-over-the-ocean type shots.
This is despite the fact that the peak season for capturing the galaxy from Qatar’s geographical location won’t begin until the end of April.
With proper framing, one can combine the beauty of the wild sea waves, the bridge over the sea, stars and at the right time of the year, a strikingly beautiful Milky Way rising above the horizon – and it’s all in Qatar.
There are no roads that lead to Galactic Core Bay, and it takes about 30 minutes of treacherous off-roading that will likely shave a few years off of your 4×4. For this reason alone, we advise going in a group with at least two 4×4 vehicles just to be on the safe side.
This place needs a special mention just because of its perfect location to get some stunning photographs. As the name suggests, this is a great place to capture the galactic core of the Milky Way. Located at the north-west part of the country, this place is uninhabited and you also get unhindered views. Make sure to carry your torches and lights and since there are no paved roads here, it is better to go using a 4×4, according to Google Reviews.
