The Avenues, Manama (must see)

The Avenues is a remarkable waterfront shopping center located in Manama.The construction of The Avenues began in September 2014 and was initially scheduled to be completed by February 2017. However, due to design changes, it was opened to the public on 29 October 2017.

The Avenues aims to provide a family-friendly environment that attracts family tourism to Bahrain. It features several outdoor jogging tracks, playgrounds, a gym, waterfront restaurants, cafes, arcades, a souq, and cinemas. The development also includes 75,000 m2 (810,000 sq ft) of gardens, public parks, and a 40m wide promenade. The total leasable area is 38,000 m2 (410,000 sq ft), accounting for 15% of the entire development area. The mall offers parking facilities that can accommodate up to 1,400 vehicles.

The developers decided to limit the mall's vertical height to one floor due to its close proximity to iconic landmarks. Additionally, the mall features a water taxi service that transports passengers to and from the development from various jetties around Bahrain.
