Essentials in Bahrain
Beaches: Thanks to the stunning weather year-round the beaches are the biggest draw for visitors. Sailing and scuba diving are both extremely popular.
Tree of Life: It may be a trek with your Bahrain car hire to get here, but it's worth it. It's a lone tree in the middle of the desert amidst the oil wells. The fun is in seeing the pure oddity of it with nothing else around.
Hawar Islands: These islands just off the coast are extremely special for their unique environment and endangered birds who call them home. It's a particular place of interest for bird-watchers.
