For a city that has nothing much to offer than shopping malls and eateries this is a place that is worth visiting at least once.

The perfect place to take your children to during the weekend and away from gadgets. The aquarium has lots of interesting specimens and are sure to bring out a lot of questions! Let your children run around the marina while you can have a refreshing walk.

The center itself is a good place for one or two visits but they have a long walking area by the sea good for open air walking and for kids to have fun. The walking area is good during the year but not summer.

The best beach side in Kuwait because of its length. Every time, if I want to jog, walk or even cycle it's my number one place
