I went several times on diving trips, there's not too much to see or to do. If you are on a speed boat, it takes about 45 minutes to get in there.....jump in the water, enjoy diving and come back. That is it.

location south kuwait it would be better if you came from fahahel or abudalh harbour or from chalet . amazing island. clear water. very good for swimming. excellent for scuba diving, this island far from radical muslim control and noisy people eyes. in my opinion rent yacht or speed boat will be excellent choice for one day out of city.
