      Bahrain is home to a rich pearl diving culture. For centuries, Bahrain was the Arabian Gulf’s pearling capital, with the active and prosperous city of Muharraq serving as a base for the largest number of pearl divers and fleet of pearling vessels. Occupying nearly 35,000 hectares and populated by over a billion oysters, Bahrain’s oyster beds are also home to diverse marine species such as corals, anemones, sea stars and fish.
