The largest island in the Persian Gulf is probably the most attractive island for tourists. If we consider Kish as the center of recreational facilities in the south of Iran , Qeshm is also the center of natural attractions in the south. The sights of Qeshm are so spectacular and beautiful that we can say little about its sights. Some sights need to be seen rather than described, such as Qeshm and the surrounding islands.

Qeshm has been occupied by the navy of colonial powers such as Portugal for many years. Remaining tools and structures of the Portuguese navy, in addition to their natural value, have also given the island historical value.

Qeshm, in addition to beautiful nature and pristine sights, has attractive shopping centers where with a little research and search you can buy quality goods at a reasonable price. What could be better than this?

If you travel to Qeshm, be sure to travel to the surrounding islands by renting fast boats native to the island and do not miss seeing them. The highlight of the islands around Qeshm is the amazing island of Hormoz and Hengam. These two beautiful islands of the Persian Gulf with their amazing soil will delight every tourist. Viewing the mangrove forests and diving are other entertainments of Qeshm that you should not miss on your trip to this island. Portuguese forts, salt caves, local markets and restaurants, Hengam Silver Beach and the colorful island of Hormuz are some of the famous sights of Qeshm.
