We are staying in the Diplomatic area and were hoping to visit the fort using the local bus. Any advice of bus numbers and where to get off the bus and walk would be appreciated. Thanks.
Thank you. We got the courtesy bus from our hotel Golden Tulip to the City Mall. It was a long walk about 50 mins but still worth it. Beautiful fort and a lovely location by the blue gulf.
not to sure where the diplomatic area is, but very poor public transport. you can take bus number 5 from Manama, then walk half an hour to the site. The fort is also easy to reach via car; it’s a 10-minute drive from central Manama and is well-signposted once outside the city
