Destination NSA Bahrain
The west inside the east
It's time to transfer. The last three months have been spent in cold, wet Bremerton, Washington, and you are hoping for something different - Warm weather, nice beaches, history-rich museums, lavish shopping and the occasional sand storm.
The desert sky is lined with buildings that twist, curve and soar like architectural space ships. Things you've only seen in movies are real life in Bahrain.
This island kingdom located east of Saudi Arabia is a gateway to the Eastern world. Places like the Maldives, Egypt and Jordan are all within reach.
Bahrain also offers one of the best places in the world for fine dining, boasts a brand new Formula 1 race track, two waterparks, a camel park, and shopping malls that are four stories tall with all the latest stores. Not to mention the deep discount on gold, diamonds and rare stones.
Naval Support Activity Bahrain is split into two sections.
NSA Bahrain 1 is paved with red smooth brick roads, and sandstone buildings. The station holds the largest K9 unit in the Navy. This side of the base also holds all the services Sailors need overseas, such as the NEX, MWR, CDC, and much more.
