On a swelteringly hot day, the perfect activity for both children and adults in Bahrain is a trip to the Lost Paradise of Dilmun. The biggest waterpark in the Middle East, The Lost Paradise of Dilmun has a number of water rides and attractions catering for all ages, ranging from lazy rivers to high-speed waterslides, man-made waves to the interactive Dancing Fountain.

The park was designed to resemble Dilmun, an ancient kingdom in Bahrain that was said to contain the Garden of Eden. Guests can also relax by the pool in private cabanas. The park also has restaurants and souvenir shops. Though expensive by local standards and far from Manama (a 45-minute drive from downtown), the Lost Paradise of Dilmun is a great family excursion in Bahrain. Visitors should note that the park is only open during the summer. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

Address: Building 1663, Road 6227, Block 1062 Hawrat Ingah, Manama
