It is generally flat with the highest point the 134 m Mountain of Smoke (Jabal ad Dukhan). With total area of 665 km2, it is an arid archipelago of 33 islands, originally. But due to land reclamation, the number of islands has now increased to 84 and area has increased to around 780 Km2. It is the site for the ancient Dimlun civilization.
The Bahrain Island, the Muharraq Island, the Hawar, Umm anNasan, and the Sitrah are the largest islands. Most of the rainfall of about 72 mm occurs only in winters. Precipitation is minimal and irregular. Locally called Shamal wind, from Saudi Arabia transported by northwesterly winds reduces visibility.
