Abu Subh Beach
Located near Budaiya, Abu Subh Beach (also known as Diraz Beach) is a great spot for families and children. The beach has loads of different stalls and food trucks lining it and has a playground for kids. Runners and dog-walkers are also a common sight.
Al Jazayer Beach
Al Jazayer Beach is Bahrain’s biggest beach and draws a lot of people especially during the weekends. It is quite a drive from the Bahrain’s center but is near other tourist spots like Bahrain International Circuit and Al Areen Wildlife & Park reserve. Visiting it alongside the other spots would make the drive super worthwhile.

You can head to this small stretch of sand and blue waters when you visit or take a tour at Arad Fort. It’s not a popular spot for swimming but you can always have a lovely stroll or quick dip of your feet in the waters. It’s also near Bahrain’s center so malls and stores are only a short drive away.
Budaiya Beach Park
Budaiya Beach park is another family friendly destination that has a children’s park, a ball park, and lots of food stalls. The beach usually gets crowded during the weekends but you’ll always find a spot in its wide stretch of sand. The beach has clear clean waters and is the perfect spot for a sunset view.
This beach near Seef isn’t visited for swimming, but it gets crowded nonetheless for the view and the regulars it has. Karbabad beach has a lot of entertainment at night, ranging from numerous food stalls to large bouncy castles. In the morning, quad bikes and horse riders are what you’ll see often.
