A Walking Tour of Manama

Old Homes & Fresh Bread

If you're looking to explore some of the beautifully restored houses in Manama then try this mini walking tour. You can turn it into a full day of exploring or do it in about 90 minutes, up to you!

Start: Merchant House

I like to start most of my Manama explorations here, where one can enjoy the elegantly renovated boutique hotel, sip on a drink or enjoy a bite on the rooftop, utilize their valet parking then head into the Manama Souk area.

Tip: Make sure to use the bathroom here so you aren’t trying to find somewhere in the Souk.

Stop 1: Manamat Gosaibi

Open google maps and search Manamat Gosaibi, the walk will take about ten minutes to reach this wonderfully restored former home of the Gosaibi Family. Be wowed upon entering with a wild canopy of bamboo flanking either side of a steep staircase, made even more awe inspiring with the smart use of mirrors to reflect the green shoots as well as catch the light.

On the right-hand side enter a 'cafe which is not a cafe' - which is how the staff explained it to me. You think you are seeing a cute cafe, with gorgeous interiors and a chance for a light refreshment, but it is not what it seems (this did confuse ma a little! I won't lie!). On the left of the ground floor walk through a few rooms and learn more about the family and its founder. Poetry echoes through the rooms as you get to learn about the achievements of the family's forefather, a poet, intellectual and statesmen.

Walk upstairs to learn more about this legacy, whilst also admiring the stunning rooftop calligraphy installation that leaves a beautiful shadow imprint on the floor.

Tip: It will cost BD 2 to enter and save your ticket, as this allows you to visit the next house (and more if you want) throughout the day with the single ticket.

Stop 2: Snack time

If you know Fifi, you know food! Right opposite Manamat Gosaibi is a traditional bakery (khabaz) serving up freshly made bread. Order a double cheese bread, watching as they stuff it and then bake it in the fire pit before handing it to you.  Makes sure to have some change handy as your impromptu snack will cost under 500 fils and they rarely have change for big notes. Relish every bite as you head to your next stop.

Stop 3: Khalaf House

Continue for a further ten-minute walk (with trusty google maps guiding you) to another former family home, restored to contemporary glory.

Khalaf House is the former home of one of Bahrain's leading pearling merchants, Mohammad Salman Khalaf. Here you will discover a more traditional renovation style, with the courtyard in the centre and rooms to the sides on two floors.

Go through room by room to learn more in each area. One room hosts old pearling tools; including nose clips, measuring bowls and shucks; to another room with antique travelling papers and visas signed from merchant visits to Bombay and Karachi nearly a hundred years ago. While, another room holds the original bed and armoire of the house, while another shows portrait of other established Bahraini merchants.

Tip: Many of these houses are closed on a Friday, so do check for timings and try to go in the week (before or after they close for lunch)

Once you are finished at Khalaf House, either head back to Merchant House for more restorative drinks or head into the Souk for a wander around, shop and bite.

Eat: A meal at Bahraini favourite, Hajis.

5 great walking trails to try in bahrain.

 alt=

Bahrain crams a lot of variety into its tiny borders, and there is no better way to get to know this tiny country than to go for a walk.

Bahrain Bay

Around Bahrain Bay are vast waterfront roads and paths. Enjoy the stunning view of the city either day or night. When the development isn’t rife with food festivals, live performances and all sorts of entertainment, it’s a great venue for a run or walk.

Bahrain Fort

Bahrain Fort has mystery, drama, and possibly one of the best sunset views in the Kingdom. Easily one of the most popular sites in the Kingdom, it’s also a place where you can get a good walk. Make your way to the site museum; upon learning about the fort’s history, head to the grounds for a beautiful stroll. 

Arad Walkway

In Arad, there is a very pleasant off-road run around the Dohat Arad Lagoon and the Arad Fort Beach Park. There are three sections to this run: This 3-km loop around the lagoon is famous for having scenic views of the bay and green spaces.

Pearling Path Trail

The Pearling Path is a 3.5km stretch in the old alleyways of Muharraq. Bask yourself in the historic trail and learn more about the ancient pearl industry firsthand. Traverse all the way from the famous Bin Matar House to the Kurar House.

Sitra Walkway

Sitra Walkway is a leisure zone featuring a two-kilometre walkway and green spaces. It is also the starting point for Bahrain’s famous mangroves tour. If the walk isn’t enough, you can make your way and explore this one of a kind destination.
