Outdoor Activies

Amid the swaying palms, shimmering waters and beautiful beaches, Amwaj Islands offers many opportunities for residents and visitors alike to pursue the simple pleasures in life or get involved in more exciting recreational pastimes.

While many activities revolve around watersports such as diving and beach life, Amwaj offers much more for those who enjoy the outdoors and nature. Thoughtful landscaping and miles of walkways and cycle routes make traversing the islands a pleasure on foot or by bike. An evening stroll or an early morning run brings beautiful views, simple pleasures and great health benefits. With low traffic, excellent road surfaces and fresh air, it’s no wonder that Amwaj has fast become a favourite of many for outdoor training, exercise and recreation.

The Lagoon
Take a stroll around The Lagoon complex at the heart of Amwaj and you're sure to find something to keep you occupied. Cafés, restaurants, shops, boutiques and more stay open late into the evening year round, providing a great place to meet, socialise and explore. You and your children can even hire bikes and trikes for a fun ride around!

Amwaj Marina Market
During the cooler months, an eclectic market can be found at The Lagoon one weekend each month, offering an array of unusual items. With over 70 stalls, the market offers everything from artwork to vintage items, accessories, jewellery, cupcakes and more. Bringing to Bahrain a taste of the quirky markets of London and Europe, the Amwaj Marina Market makes a fantastic family day out.

The Al Azizia Bird Kingdom
