Great Place to relax

A nice pace to relax with clean water and nice sandy beach. Although the water is very calm with very little wave action, still its a good escape from the heat. Nice restaurant... read more

As British ex-pats, we've been going to the lovely Al Dar island about four times a year, for the last four years, always taking visiting family / friends as a treat and have watched and experienced the island develop more recently. It's previously been an absolute fail-safe place to please everyone and we've always all relaxed and had a genuinely... More

The island itself is a 5-10 minute boat ride from the Sitra port. On arriving we are met with staff who's English is not great. We check in and then, despite being advertised differently we have to walk the length of the island with a baby, pram, cooler and 2 bags. The staff member showing us took 1 bag and... More

Nice restaurant with good food and beverage. Entry fee for public beach is 5BD with additional rental fee if you want lounge chairs. Private huts/chalets can also be booked... More

Of all the beaches i explored on my bahrain trip. Al dar had been the best. You can book your private chalet if dont want to be surrounded by too many young brats. Its noce calm and beautiful places with jet skiying and kayaking facilities. I would recommend to everyone 👍

I was expecting a better beach and more clean island. full of rocks and grass however still acceptable compared to most of beaches in Bahrain. during month of Ramadan you not allowed to drink or eat and the restaurant is closed till sunset.

This is one of Bahrain’s most secluded places! You can rent a villa or a cottage for 2 or group. It is a very nice place. Great during summer for family or group of friends. The entrance fee is affordable. You will enjoy the 10-15 minute-boat ride going to the island, the nice view and the quite place. You can... More

Much needed place due to the fact that there is no easy beach access on the island of Bahrain. Despite being short-staffed, they are pretty helpful & they try their best. Whether it's for relaxation, some fun under the sun, or throwing a private party at the beach, this place will accommodate your needs. Food is ok-to-good at a very... More
