Bahrain is an archipelago of 33 small islands in the Arabian Gulf midway between the Qatar peninsula and Saudi Arabia. Bahrain Island is pearl shaped land mass 48 km long and 16 km wide. Bahrain lies 24 km east of Saudi Arabia and 29 km west of Qatar.
The best time of year to travel to Bahrain is during the relatively mild weather of spring or autumn. Gentle breezes soften the high temperatures, and sunny skies are continuous. Summers in Bahrain are hot and humid, the humidity is dampened towards the end of the summer when the 'Al Barah', a dry northwesterly wind, blows in. The climate of Bahrain is generally dry, but low-pressure systems in winter can bring some rainfall.
