Pearl Diving in Bahrain
In Arabic, Bahrain means "two seas"—the first being the Persian Gulf and the second the sweetwater springs bubbling up from under the 400 square kilometers of oyster beds surrounding the island. Such a unique biosphere of fresh and salt water has imbued local pearls with their distinctively Bahraini luster. If you discover one while out on a dive (Into the Blue Dive Center comes recommended), it’s yours to treasure.
