Arad Fort Tours and Activities

1 Review

Strategically located overlooking a number of sea passages, Arad Fort is one of Bahrain's most important fortified castles, and is a classic example of Islamic fort architecture in the 15th and 16th centuries. It used to guard a separate island of its own, but the fort has since been connected to Muharraq Island.

Arad Fort was used as a defensive fortress throughout various phases of Bahrain’s history, and was the site of many conflicts, including the country’s occupation by the Portuguese in the 16th century. It has undergone various construction phases throughout the years and is now open to the public to visit, as well as playing host to a number of seasonal festivals.

History and military buffs, as well as those interested in architecture, will be particularly enchanted, with three archeological layers of the fort to explore. Among the site, there’s a trench, two wells, a canal, plus lookout towers at each of the fort’s four corners with passages that connect them.

A visit to Arad Fort can be combined with other attractions in the area to make for a fun and informative day out for all ages. A full day tour to discover the highlights of Bahrain might include visiting Al Fateh Grand Mosque, the Bahrain National Museum, Al Areen Wildlife Park, and Bahrain International Circuit.

Discover a different view of Bahrain! You meet us at Amwaj Marina, full of expectation of the adventure that lies ahead. We welcome you aboard, cast off the lines and set off into blue. Our tour heads south past Bahrain's new waterside developments and onto Bahrain's Sheikh Khalifa Port. Heading northwards again we journey under the Sh. Khalifa Bin Salman bridge to see the centuries old Arad Fort and Bahrain traditional dhow building yards. We cross under the Sh. Hamed bridge - which, in the 1940s was a swing bridge opening to trading dhows traveling from Mina Salman through to Mina Manama. We then view an area that is home to Bahrain's local inshore fisherman before traveling under the Sheikh Isa Causeway and into Bahrain's northern open waters. We travel east past the Diyar Al Muharraq development before turning into Amwaj Islands and home again to our marina. You will return to shore with great memories and photos of a unique day out.
