Kish Island

Welcome to Iran’s Sunshine Coast, or Iran’s Costa del Sol. However you label it, say hello to this attractive island that, since the 1970s, has become a beach resort where visitors can swim, shop and sample a laid-back and relatively liberated local lifestyle. Iran’s most hedonistic spot, Kish is booming. Hotels, apartment blocks and retail complexes (it enjoys free-trade-zone status) dominate the once-empty desert landscape and domestic tourist numbers are on the rise, especially in winter, when it’s freezing cold on the mainland.
Kish is largely attracted by foreign tourists, too. That’s great, because a visit here is a great way to experience Iran from an altogether different perspective.

About Kish island

Kish has a very hot climate due to geographical and regional conditions. In fact, summers on this island are very long and sometimes reach up to 95% humidity. In Kish you will rarely see rain except in winter and in the form of rainstorms. Therefore, it can be said that the best month to travel and stay in Kish is between January and May, where you can escape the cold in other parts of the country and seek refuge in the cool air of Kish.
Interesting thing about Kish climate is that the oxygen on the island is pure that even pulmonary patients do not need to use oxygen capsules and this feature is only available in five locations around the world.
The average annual temperature of this beautiful island is about 24 degrees Celsius. Most of the island’s vegetation is composed of palm trees, although native to the trees are Persian Kahur, Eucalyptus, Acacia and Albizia lebbeck. Most of the vegetation and trees in this area are resistant against heat and dehydration.

History of Kish Island

It is said that since the Achaemenid era, the island has been under Iranian control, with the spread of Islam in the region. The Umayyad Arab caliphs dominated the island of Kish until 249 AH. The Persians took control of the whole Persian gulf region under Al-Bouyeh regime, and this continued until the Timurid Mongols. The golden age of Kish Island was the time of the Seljuks, when it became the largest trading center of the Persian Gulf.
But a bit later, a tripe called “Qiasareh” came to power in Kish – Originally poor people who lived on piracy and day by day fortified economic foundations of their government.
These rulers were descendants of a person called “Qays” – A reason to call the island “Qays”.
With the assassination of “King Sultan” – the last ruler of Qiasareh – their reign on the island got over.

In 912 AH Kish was occupied by the Portuguese, but at the end of 1031 AH, Shah Abbas’s regent, Imam Ghuli Khan, seized all the islands of the Persian Gulf along with Bahrain. Then Kish was recognized as one of the Iranian islands again.
Kish Island was selected as the first free economic zone in Iran in 1982 and is now one of the most active free zones of the country. One of the goals of Kish Island is the development of tourism and commerce in the region; in addition to its historical attractions, the island has been equipped with numerous hotels and entertainment centers.
