  • Bahrain Beaches

    Being an island it seems only fitting for Bahrain to have a choice of beaches, public and private, for expats to go to and relax in the sun. Bahrain is known as being a liberal Gulf country however when it comes to the public beach there are certain dress code restrictions. It is acceptable for men to wear long shorts to the beach. Speedos are discouraged. Women should keep covered on the public beach and wear what they would normally wear to a mall, hence keep their shoulders and knees covered

  • Parks & Gardens in Bahrain

    Traditionally going to the park has always been a relaxing thing to do, no matter where you are from. People can go to the park on their own for a little bit of outdoor quiet time, or you can go with a loved one or the whole family for a multitude of reasons including a plain walk, to sit and talk, to play a game of checkers or to have a picnic. It is no different in Bahrain.
