The island is connected with the existing seawall of the island, which becomes the maritime gateway of the capital Manama. Outside the port, there is a long dike extending from the southeast of muharrag island and a breakwater extending from the northeast of Bahrain island. The port was built in the early 1960s. There is an 800m long arm shaped jetty in the southeast of the port area. There are 10 berths along the side, which can be used for berthing passing ships with draught of more than 9m. Orthogonal to the heel of the jetty is a large jetty extending to the northeast. On the southeast side of the jetty, there are six berths with length of 200m and water depth of 11m, four of which are used for groceries and two for containers. To the west of the two jetties is the coastal ship wharf with a water depth of 5.5-7.4 meters. In addition, there is a large boat harbor. There are shipyards in the south of the port area, which are built by Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Liberia, Iraq and the United Arab Emirates.
