So if you want to include activities such as Diving, Shuttle riding, Fly boards or any kind of water sports into your trip to Iran, consider putting the “Qeshm island” on your top destinations list.
This island is located in the south of Iran in Hormozgan province.
it is the largest island in the Persian Gulf and has many diverse beaches. Qeshm’s area is 1491 square meters and it is interesting to know that this number doubles the total area of Bahrain!
Qeshm island’s resorts are perfectly designed for both families with kids, spending a fun holiday and young adventurers.
Also good choice for romantic getaways!
Mostly the numbers of rooms are under 200 and they have average quality but Luckily in the past 5 years there’s been huge investments in accommodations of Qeshm island so if you’re used to luxury hotels or the 5-star hotels standards you will have at least 2-3 choices there. there’s also cheap options for backpackers like hotel-apartment or boutique hotels which we’ll review in the following.
My recommendation is that to choose the nearest hotel or hustle or whatever type of resort you prefer to have easier access to the Persian Gulf beach or shopping malls and not to waste time or money on transportation!
