Kubbar (Kobar) Island requires a boat to reach the island, though there are groups that arrange yachts on occasion. The island is deserted, so bring your own food, drinks, music, etc. The coast guard patrols the island so it is surprisingly clean. There is not much to do on the island itself. Bring your snorkeling gear and you can see... More

You obviously need a boat to visit this island but once there, it is just a place to relax. There are no facilities just groups sitting on the beach, eating, swimming and having fun. The island is very small but it has been cleaned up in recent times and is mainly litter free and clean now. The water is clear... More

The island is beautiful. The water yet is clean, there are a lot of birds there, baby birds and bird eggs. But the biggest problem are the people that leave garbage scatter on the beach and sea. Please, don't trow away in sea your garbage and YOUR CIGARRETE.

Although very crowded on weekends, one can go to this Island in weekdays and enjoy some peace of mind and the clear water. Take everything indeed with you as some reviewers mentioned before me. Worth the journey.

It is fun getaway to rent a boat with friends or family and make a day trip to Kobar. It is not too far and the water is nicer, cleaner and some fish can be seen. The island itself is just a tiny sand pit, so not much to see there but it is definitely great to do something different... More

The island is very small and has absolutely nothing. You can only reach this island if you have a private boat or join a group tour. It's peaceful, and the water is CLEAN.

It is only worth going there if you have your own boat. The island is small and empty. Please dont shoot down any bird they are mostly migratory and breed on the island. Also please dont anchor on the reef. There is already serious damage done due to achors and nets. Conserve the biodiversity there.
