In a step towards increasing the capacity of their growing populations, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries have been following a trend of using their coastal lines and shallow waters to create artificial islands. Those destinations do not serve only as a solution to the population, but they have also been growing as tourist attractions. In that sense, Durrat Al Bahrain comes as one of the top attractions in the region.

Located 40 kilometers south of the Kingdom of Bahrain’s capital Al Manama, Durrat Al Bahrain is the kingdom’s third-largest artificial island. This $6bn project spans more than 21 square kilometers in the form of a series of 14 islands that have a mesmerizing aerial view: including six atolls, five fish-shaped islands, and two crescent-shaped islands.

With over thousands of grandiose residential and business spaces, luxury hotels and spa resorts, parks and recreation areas, mosques, international schools, top retail malls and restaurants, a 400-berth marina, and an 18-hole championship golf course, it is practically a world on its own. One will never run out of things to do here.

To help you make up your mind, here are top 10 things to do in order to enjoy the best of the Durrat Al Bahrain.
