Bahrain Holidays

The small, Middle Eastern nation of Bahrain is made up of 33 islands strewn throughout the Arabian Gulf, the largest of which is where you’ll find most of the country’s fabulous luxury hotels and shopping. Bahrain is one of the most forward-thinking states in the region, welcoming modern travellers keen to immerse themselves in the culture – and the sun. There are stunning white beaches lapped by warm seas, air-conditioned malls, upscale restaurants and lively nightclubs, mostly centred in the capital city, Manama.

That said, there’s much more to a holiday in Bahrain than luxury experiences! The country is steeped in cultural heritage, from ancient mosques dating back to 700 AD to Bronze Age ruins. The pearl industry long played an important part in Bahrain’s economy, its history laid bare in old pearling towns like the UNESCO-stamped Muharraq, with its ornate houses and the Qal’at Bu Mahir fortress that are fascinating to explore. Action-seekers won’t be found wanting with watersports, a golf course and Formula One Grand Prix race track that you can visit; another reason why Bahrain is an unexpected gem in the Middle East.
