Best Time to Visit Bahrain

Bahrain has a tropical desert climate characterised by two seasons. The exceedingly hot summer runs from May through to October, and winter descends 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, but the evenings are pleasantly cool. It''s best to avoid visiting in summer as the humidity makes conditions extreme. It's also worth bearing in mind that sand storms can whip up in the spring – they’re infrequent, but can limit your activity.
