Abu Thlama is one of Bahrain’s top dive sites and one of the best beaches in Bahrain and, because of its distance from the shore, is considered one of the few that has not been affected by the land reclamation that has killed the coral reefs.
Located nearly 80 km north of Muharraq, you can find a broad variety of tropical fish species, including clown fish as well as magnificent corals, in Abu Thlama beach. This is also one of the deepest diving sites in Bahrain, with depths ranging between 9 and 30 meters beneath the water surface.
The best time to visit Abu Thlama is in the summer mainly from May to November, because the dive boat cannot sail in the rough water.
This site is located near Abu Thlama, 50 km north of Muharraq. Fasht Najwah is one of the most visited dive sites in Bahrain, and is actually the most populated site with fish species.
