We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Al Dar Islands from the moment we were speeding across the bay. The island is much smaller than we expected but has all the facilities we needed. We hired sun beds (surprised this cost isn't included in overall cost ) and had no problem finding an umbrella to shade under. We visited on a... More

Al dar is less than an hour away from centre of Bahrain. Need to take a trip to Sitra and take a ferry from there. The prices are a little high. The place is amazing which clean beaches, beach beds, where you can relax with your family or friends. For a day trip you could rent a bed for the... More

I have been hearing all the rave of how this is the spot to be during summertime as there are activities that are available in the island itself. So I was expecting a somewhat decent and fun experience. Unfortunately, it wasn't even close to that. Upon arrival to Sitra, you buy your tickets for access in the island. (entrance fee... More

Unbeleivably awful place. The shore is very nice but they simply don't take care of it. Not clean at all, ugly huts & full of mosquitos, the water not clean and the ambiance is bad. Thought it should be much better than this. The only good thing is the fast drive in sea taxi between Setra & the island.

Smooth trip to Al Dar with a motor boat. We didn't explored the whole island as it was too hot to just walk around, we wanted to get cool in the water. No chance to do that - the water was almost as hot as the air around us. But what would u expect - it's August in Bahrain! Everything... More

Exciting experience riding jet ski for half hour. Really very nice view enjoying the nature at the heart of Bahrain. Prices of activities are affordable.

The island is too small. No privacy, poor service, expensive. Not the place to go spend time and money.
