Bahrain, although blessed being surrounded by crystal clear seas lacked a proper berthing facility for boats. The idea to build a proper Marina was initiated by boating enthusiasts to fulfill this need, and a committee was formed to bring such a plan to reality.
The present site was located and work began on this ambitious project. Originally a desolate watery bed complete with sinking barges, was covered into a strong land mass by dredging, and a site suitable to build on came into existence. No efforts was spared and on November 11, 1981 the Marina Club was inaugurated with an initial membership of 520 members.
The modern facilities offered by the Marina Club have ensured its popularity right from the beginning , but the club has not rested on its laurels, always striving to improve and enhance the many amenities offered.
In 1989, the Health Club was introduced with the latest fitness machines to keep in tune with the demands of today’s health conscious generation.
