Bahrain Holidays

Bahrain presents an adventurous holiday full of contrasts. There are many ancient, archaeological monuments to explore across the islands, including museums and three UNESCO World Heritage sites. Alternatively, there are outdoor activities to enjoy such as scuba diving and visiting beautiful sandy beaches. The tourist hubs around the main island of Al Bahrayn feature sophisticated, purpose-built hotels. Bahrain is ideal for shopping, either in local markets or ultra-modern shopping malls full of designer brands. After dark, illuminations give the city a magical atmosphere, while restaurants and nightclubs offer first-class cuisine and live music.
