Bahrain weather overview

High temperatures and humidity make life in Bahrain a misery in the summer months when conditions are so hot and sticky there is a danger of heat exhaustion for the unwary.

Winter temperatures are more comfortable, making this a better time to visit, although nights can be chilly and cold winds can gust in from Iran. Rainfall is sparse and occurs mainly in the winter months.

What to pack for Bahrain weather

If you must go in summer, take very light, loose, absorbent clothing, keep your head covered out of doors - and thank God for air conditioning! Take slightly warmer clothing in the winter months.
