Umm Bab clay quarry may not be conventionally beautiful, but it possesses stunning scenery that is not forgotten easily. After decades of digging, the quarry has become a largely barren landscape with deep canals and high ridges.
Umm Bab is primarily known for its beach, but it’s also home to a historic business. Back in 1965, Qatar National Cement Company started its operations here, and to date, it’s still operational.
