Rich in culture and history, the Kingdom of Bahrain – whose name means two seas – is an archipelago of 33 islands which form the only island-state in the Arab world. The main island of Bahrain lies in the Arabian Gulf about halfway between Saudi Arabia to the west and Qatar to the east. Bahrain Island is the largest archipelago, around 30 miles from north to south and 10 miles from east to west. Causeways and bridges connect it to Muharraq, the second largest island where the international airport is located and Sitra, the industrial centre. The King Fahad Causeway, which opened in 1986, has made Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, and beyond directly and easily accessible by road from Bahrain.

Bahrain is also an exciting place for water sports enthusiasts. In addition, the Formula 1 Grand Prix has placed Bahrain on the list of international motor racing circuits. This stunning new racetrack is just a 45-minute drive away.
