Pearl of the Persian Gulf and a beautiful and spectacular island with an area of ​​90 square kilometers south of Iran whose coral reefs and crystal clear waters attract more than 2 million tourists annually. This island, like others in the Persian Gulf, especially those located in the Strait of Hormuz, has a semi-equatorial climate with tropical vegetation. On this island is the underground city of Kariz, which covers an area of ​​10,000 square meters and is 2,500 years old. Sixteen meters below the ground, this city has an 8 meter ceiling and corals and oysters with a 500 million year old birth certificate. The Iranian government has struggled to develop it by launching massive construction projects to make Kish a rival to Doha and Dubai. In fact, Kish is one of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s standard free trade zones. Recreational facilities on this island include coral beaches, sandy beaches, parks, gardens, zoo, bird garden, pleasure boats and the Greek ship.

The 80-day effort to rescue it proved ineffective and it was recognized as the property of the Iranian shipping company. The Greek ship in the crystal clear waters of the Persian Gulf has created a picturesque landscape.
