Arad Fort, Al Muharraq

(3/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Explore Arad Fort, a 15th-century fortress built to monitor and protect the island. Today, it represents a great spot to take a strol, enjoy the views, have a drink, and take some artistic photos. Stroll around the site and reflect on the traditional architecture, which wasn’t altered during the fort's restoration in the 20th century; no modern materials, like cement, were used. See the four circular towers on the fort's corners, and peer down into the now disused moat outside the gates. From time to time, the fort serves as a venue for concerts and local festivals.

  • The Arad fort is compared with the qalat fort a lot less. At the time of our visit there were large construction parts on site what the view of the fort took away. Be fine to combine with the Mall Seef mal Muharraq

  • The fort to see in Bahrain is Bahrain Fort, to the west of Manama. This one is a poor substitute. The views are far from rewarding, especially as it is difficult to see through the knee-high windows. ...  more »
  • Old Fort, high walls, around excavated. Not much else. The way many areas were shown on us, where new land is obtained by you from dredging the ocean floor. It kinda destroyed the flora and fauna. But one American companies engaged, again to fix it???

  • Amazing place! Tour guide was very helpful and gave interesting information on the background history. Personally loved it very much. Only drawback was the super hot weather!
  • A nice location but the surrounding area clashes with the natural look. Dangerous elevated areas with no safety railings.
  • The view is beautiful, but there is nothing to see!! if your going there just for the Fort it will be time wast, but if you go there and then reach another place near it it will be ok
  • See the fort and enjoy the waterfront park. Good venue - hosts many of the "Spring of Culture" events. Seef Mall Muharraq is a neighbour.
  • Cool place to hang out after you finish hanging around seef maal
