Opened in 1986, the 15.5 mile King Fahad Causeway is one of the most expensive bridges, which connects the large city of Khobar in the royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with the island of Bahrain.


This giant cultural landmark worth $1billion links Saudi Arabia with Bahrain, and is one of the longest bridges between the two nations. Unveiled in 1986, the causeway helped end the separation of 25,000 year separation between the two nations.

King Fahad Causeway is actually a combination of several bridges and dams. The five bridges that were completed as part of this project had a combined length of 12,430 meters. The huge stretch of roads was completed with cubic meters of concrete and heavy duty reinforced steel.

The Causeway actually comprises three parts, once extending from Khobar to man-made island of Saudi Arabia close to Bahrain border. Another one begins from this artificial island to Umm-al-Nasan, and the third one joins Umm-al-Nasan to main island of Bahrain.

Visitors are not permitted entry into Saudi Arabia without a visa usually, but they can drive to the midpoint of the causeway and enjoy the wonderful view across both countries from the restaurant tower.
