Kish Island
04.08.2010
Located in the Persian Gulf 19 km from mainland Iran, Kish has an area of around 91 km2 with an outer boundary of 40 km and a nearly elliptical shape. Due to its free trade zone status it is touted as a consumer's paradise, with numerous malls, shopping centers, tourist attractions, and resort hotels. Kish Island has been mentioned in history variously.

The coral coasts of Kish Island, a pearl across the turquoise waters of the Persian Gulf, have a special glow under the sunlight. The seawater near the coasts is so clear, that one can see the depths of the sea and all its aquatic life that are unique in their kind.
