Qeshm Naz Islands

Naz Island, Qeshm Island, Hormozgan, Iran

About 30 km south of Qeshm city, there are a number of small and uninhabited islands that today are known as important attractions for tourists and are on the list of important sights of Qeshm Island.

These islands, known as Naz (Cute) Islands, are located about 1 km from the coast. The short distance of these islands from the shore has caused a land route to reach the islands when the sea water is low and it is possible to walk from the shore to the islands. But when the sea level rises, this route goes under water and the Naz islands become separate from the land.

Nobody lives on the Naz islands and today it is used as a tourist destination. On the beach and in the closest distance to the islands, amenities such as camel riding, paragliding, etc. have been created that can be used.

On one of the islands there are a number of small buildings built by the locals for the use of fishermen. Apart from these facilities, the rest of the islands remain untouched.

Visiting the islands in both tide modes has its own charms. In tide mode, you can enjoy walking on the beach to reach the islands, and in fashion mode, you can enjoy seeing the islands surrounded by the sea.

Naz islands have a rocky beach and the height of its walls is between 5 to 10 meters, and for this reason, in fashion, they show a beautiful view with the presence of roaring waves next to these walls.

The route to the Naz islands is short. With the help of the installed signs, you can reach the islands from Qeshm city in about half an hour drive. If the water level is low, it can take about 20 minutes from the car parking lot to the islands.
