A popular port for locals & expats alike

One of the Persian Gulf’s important trading centers, the port of Al Manamah (or Manama as it is often referred to) is the capital of Bahrain and home to a very diverse population, with Portuguese, Middle Eastern, and British influences evident throughout the centuries.

It’s also home to one of the largest mosques in the world (Al-Fateh Mosque), the UNESCO World Heritage site of Bahrain Fort with excavations that date back to 3000 BC, and the Tree of Life, a famed lone tree that thrives in the middle of a dry desert, making it a complete mystery to modern science.

Outdoor activities here include dolphin watching, scuba and pearl diving, and bird watching; and with alcohol permitted in Bahrain, Al Manamah—and its accompanying nightlife—is a popular destination for locals and expats alike.
