How to find cheap flights to Bahrain
Despite non-official talks between the two countries, Bahrain remains a forbidden fruit for Israeli traveler. If you hold a foreign passport, you can look for cheap flights to Bahrain from Tel Aviv via connecting flights, usually via Istanbul operated by Pegasus Airlines and Turkish Airlines, or via Amman operated by Royal Jordanian. Israeli passport holders can have a stopover in Bahrain but are not allowed to leave the airport.

5,000 years of history are offered in Bahrain, with three forts that have been meticulously restored and that are now open to the public, along with a museum that contains many artifacts ranging from the ancient Dilmun periods through to the Islamic era.
You’ll be thrilled to know that alcohol is legal in Bahrain, meaning there is a relatively relaxed culture, lively social scene, and some pretty good shops. There are also great beaches, offering the warm waters of the Arabian Gulf and plenty of activities such as sailing and scuba diving. You can cool yourself down at the beaches of Bahrain and the iconic human-made Palm Islands, Palm Jumeirah or Palm Jebel Ali. Palm Jumeirah offers a variety of hotels, restaurants, and beaches for visitors.
