Al Dar Islands Bahrain, Manama

3.7
#1 of 9 in Outdoors in Bahrain
Relax on the sands of Al Dar Islands Bahrain, a small island off the coast of Sitra and a popular weekend getaway for locals, known for its laid-back atmosphere and beaches. The island lies just minutes away from Sitra, so you can easily reach it via boats that depart from the port every day. Rent a beach hut or sunbathe on the warm sands, and take a dip in the waters of the Persian gulf. Amenities are plenty, including a number of restaurants, BBQ grills, showers, and a variety of watersports options, such as jet skis, boating, and scuba diving.

  • Nice place. Should carry our own food and can enjoy with family n kids. Beach is nice for kids swimming but problem is stones prick in the beach. Kids area has small pool where they can enjoy. Jet Ski boating and banana boat riding is fantastic. The chalets are very good, clean and maintained. Good scenery in the evening and could enjoy the whole day. Staff are very friendly and very cooperative. If going with family better to take your own food so that you can enjoy very well. Over all superb destination for a family outing.
  • A nice place if you’re looking to grill out with family and friends. Other than that, the island is rather small and full of sharp pebbles. Not a good place if you’re looking for a sandy beach.
  • الجزيرة هادئة ولكن تحتاج الى الكثير من النظافة، وزيادة الانشطة، كما ان اسعارها مبالغ فيها سعر الانتقال من المرسى الى الجزيرة ٨ دينار ( ٢١ دولار) كما ان اسعار المياة الضعف بالجزيرة ( ينصح باخذ ما يلزمكم من متء وعصائر ومأكولات ) فالمطعمين ع الجزيرة اكلهم متوسط
  • How to reach here? Anyone, please advise.
  • Highly recommended for a romantic getaway , or for a more sociable daytrip with friends.
