Durrat Al Bahrain
Durrat Al Bahrain is the largest artificial island in Bahrain after the Amwaj Islands. The US$ 6 billion project will consist of a series of 15 large artificial islands, covering an area of over 20,000,000 m2 (220,000,000 sq ft) once completed in mid-2015. It will comprise six atolls, five fish-shaped islands and two crescent-shaped islands.
The plans for the finished islands include five-star hotels, an 18-hole golf course, 12 bridges, and a marina. The marina will span three of the islands and will cover a land area of approximately 700,000 m2 (7,500,000 sq ft) with a cost of about US$ 1.3 billion.
The marina is a joint venture between Durrat Khaleej Al Bahrain and Tameer, one of the GCC region’s leading developers. The marina development is the first of its type and size in Bahrain and in the Middle East.
Today Durrat Al Bahrain is one of the most luxury places in Bahrain.
