New beach at Bahrain Bay

A PUBLIC beach is part of a major integrated tourism project inaugurated in Bahrain Bay yesterday.

The Bahrain Bay Beach, which covers more than 170,000sqm, will stretch from the northern coast of Bahrain Bay to the south of Al Saya.

The Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA) hosted a foundation stone-laying ceremony, signalling the start of the massive project which will have a 600m beachfront.

The ceremony was held under the patronage of Industry, Commerce and Tourism Minister and BTEA chairman Zayed Alzayani.

Capital Governor Shaikh Hisham bin Abdulrahman Al Khalifa and other senior officials attended.

The massive infrastructure project is strategically located in one of the most developed urban areas in Bahrain, boasting unique luxurious residential, business and tourism buildings, in addition to community and public facilities.

The project is made up of five main allotments – a 200m public beach, to be developed by BTEA, accounting for 28 per cent of the overall area of the project.

The other four allotments house private tourism developments, each having a 100m beachfront, in addition to a zone for public facilities and 425 public parking spaces.

The four plots will include private beaches which will be developed respectively by Wyndham Hotel (9,137sqm); Gulf Hotel (10,391sqm), Tawfiq Al Alawi and Sons Holding (13,177sqm), while the fourth plot will be developed by Solimar Real Estate.

The four subdivisions will be designed to include tourism projects, including restaurants, cafes and entertainment venues.

The massive scheme is part the 2022-2026 tourism strategy in line with the government’s priorities to develop promising sectors, as announced in its roadmap for economic recovery. “The Bahrain Bay Beach reflects the government’s keenness on developing tourism as a key pillar of the economic recovery plan to boost the gross domestic growth and diversify revenues,” said Mr Alzayani.
