“A little treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

A difficult thing to find but when you get there it is a great find. More so when the sun is setting. Sadly there is little respect for this landmark and the tree has been the victim of lots of hideous graffiti. It is also climbed on and the weight of 10 adults posing for photos means that branches have been broken and damaged. One day someone will learn to value what little this Island has left and preserve what is left.

“Its a tree, and its alive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Despite the permanent presence of a 'security' guy, its a shame its become untidy, daubed with graffiti and buried in litter. Apart from that, it's one of the things you 'must' see in Bahrain.

“Tree of life?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

It was exciting going out into the desert to see the tree of life in Bahrain. However, the tree looked like it was on it's last legs but very peculiar how the tree is so big and green in the middle of all the sand...

“A long way to go to be disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

The idea of a single tree growing in the desert is worth a visit, but on close examination the tree has been targeted by the graffiti mob. There is nothing but the tree to see for miles, no shade, no coffee bar just a single track road. Fine to visit as it is on the way to the racetrack or Grand Prix Circuit, but otherwise not worth the effort

“Dont waster your time..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Nothing much to write about. Except that there is a tree right in the middle of the desert. No facilites are around for anything. Just the tree in the middle of the desert. Complete waste of time to travel that far..
