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.

Kobar Island is one of those places only attainable by boat and/or Jet Ski, albeit the Jet Ski option will most likely leave you wishing you had a boat...

seriously.. I'd rather pay and travel anywhere than to just go there and stare at other people's boats that are staring back ... the island is nothing but and empty piece of land and there isn't much to do there.... what the hell

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.
