Island’s newest water sports attraction


Marassi Al Bahrain’s popular beachfront area, Marassi Beach, is now home to a cable wake park, brought to Bahrain from Germany, where water sports fans can hone their wakeboarding, knee-boarding or water-skiing skills in a safe environment. The cable park will be operated by local water sports gurus from Bahrain Wake, who will be on hand to assist users at all time during their sessions. The cable-wake park joins Bahrain’s biggest floating waterpark, measuring 35m by 50m and featuring trampolines, pyramid slides, climbing obstacles and dive-through tunnels. The aquatic playground was specially ordered for Marassi Beach, and is fun for the whole family, especially in the hotter weather.


Mr Daniel Hammond, General Manager Eagle Hills Bahrain, commented: “With these two water-based activities, plus our extended F&B and children’s playground, Marassi Beach is now the best venue for a fun family day out in Bahrain. The set up and equipment used in the cable wake park is one of a kind in Bahrain and has the highest standards of safety and operation. Experienced boarders will love the obstacles and jumps in the park, whilst beginner adrenaline-seekers will also be able to test their skills in wake or knee boarding and skiing. We will be manning the park with professional staff at all times, and lifeguards are on hand covering the whole beach and the floating water-park during beach opening hours.”


Marassi Al Bahrain’s two-kilometre beach, with a brand-new waterfront retail and food and beverage promenade, is currently open to the public with a full range of services and facilities including changing and prayer rooms and a children’s playground, operating every day from 9am to 6pm.
