This post is part of a series on Bahrain’s tourist attractions, notable places of interest, and just about everything I love about the island. Bahrain has been home to me since May 2007.
Amwaj Islands (Arabic: جزر أمواج; translated: Juzur Amwaj) is a group of manmade islands located at the northeast of Bahrain, near the coast of Muharraq Island. The islands consist of residential and commercial areas as well as a marina which also hosts boat shows and exhibitions.
While it’s not exactly a public beach, crowds flock on some of the open parts especially during weekends for barbecue picnics, swimming, various water activities (jet skis, kite surfing) or simply laze by the beach.
We celebrated last Easter with family and friends hosted by USN Capt. Richardsson and Ma’am Rita at their lovely beachfront home in Amwaj. It was a fun filled day with yummy food and team building games where everyone eagerly participated.
Easter egg hunt for the kiddos, paddle boating, kayak race, water balloon catching and the finale – Tug of War (our team won!) Everyone was cheering for the teams they were rooting for. It was a tiring day, but sure we all went home with big smiles on our faces.
