Galali (Arabic: قلالي) is a small area in the Kingdom of Bahrain, located on Muharraq Island, north of Muharraq City. Galali used to be the farthest north point of Bahrain before the development of the manmade artificial islands of Amwaj Islands.
Around 2000 people used to live in Galali (1991 census). Today, Galali is 16 times bigger than it was 25 years ago because of reclamation of sea.
Between 1920-1925 many people got infected with plague that was the reason that led to the migration of population and make it empty, but after several years they have come back.
Galali refers to a group of cliffs in dialectal Arabic.
