Al Jazayir Beach, Zallaq

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.

Al Jazayir Beach (also known as Zallaq Beach), is a public beach located in Zallaq on the western coast of Bahrain. It is a memorable beach for me, as it’s also one of the first getaways I’ve been to since coming to the island.

It’s a bit of a long drive going there, going past the Bahrain International Circuit, Al Areen Wildlife Park & Reserve, keep going and going until you reach the Sailing Club and finally you’d reach the stretch of blue waters and golden sands.🙂

There’s a playground for kids in one area and several large sheds scattered (we used one during an early morning barbecue).

Like boy scouts we brought everything (no convenience stores at sight pramis) – marinated meats, charcoal, cooked rice, salads, sandwiches, water, juices, soft drinks, paper cups, cutleries, paper plates, paper towels, name it! :) Buboy and Dwight managed to set up a makeshift barbecue grill.

After eating, went for a stroll at the beach to burn some of the calories.🙂

Water is shallow (I was really enjoying “walking” in the water as it’s only up to my knees but when I turned around I realized I was so far already. I got scared and walked back! Fast. LOL.)

Also note that the beach bed can be rocky at many parts, so we wore crocs / slippers. Masakit sa talampakan, pramis. Try mo.🙂

Ngapala, this is a public beach nga so everyone is expected to wear modest swim clothes. No, you cannot wear your bikini here without risking arrest. So it’s an excuse for us chubby ones to make tampisaw in the water in our shirt and long shorts. Yay!🙂

Another time we went in the late afternoon to experience on the other hand the Sunset. Siempre, for me, all sunsets are lovely. Hehe. I just love sunsets. Especially at the beach.

There were so many people that time (it was Eid holiday) so we didn’t use any of the sheds and went to the far end. Mga anti social! Hehe. Just kidding. We just wanted to have some privacy.🙂

We set up tents and beach mats and waited for sunset until moonrise. We had dinner by the beach with cool breeze. Talk about natural air conditioning hehehe.

However after we packed up, we noticed the winds were getting stronger and then we saw lightning. No thunder sound though, I think. O baka bingi lang talaga ako.

It was my first time to experience a thunderstorm in Bahrain and I didn’t know if I’d be amazed or scared. For about an hour we waited inside the beach’s restrooms until the rains and strong winds subside before we drove home. Kalokang experience!

All in all, I love this beach. I just hope everyone does his/her share to preserve it.

Let’s keep it clean. Stop littering! Kaya nga may mga giant garbage skips all around. Okidoks?🙂
