Best Time to Travel

Bahrain has a tropical desert climate characterised by two seasons: The exceedingly hot summer from May through to October and the winter from November to April. Average temperatures may vary little but the best time of the year for a holiday in Bahrain, is between mid-November and mid-March. This is when the Bahrain weather is hot and the evenings are pleasantly cool. Avoid visiting in the summer as the humidity makes conditions extreme and bear in mind dust and sand storms can whip up in the spring. They’re infrequent but can limit your activity.
