Park-Saheli-Marjan- Kish Island, Iran

Park-Saheli-Marjan- Kish Island, Iran

Persian Gulf, South of Iran

Kish Island has a unique situation in the strategic Persian Gulf region among tens of large and small islands. This island is so beautiful and attractive that it has become known as the Pearl of the Persian Gulf since ancient times.

Its calm coasts are covered with coral sands that shine in the sunlight, creating a unique and fascinating sight. The clear coastal waters allow one to view several meters deep into the sea and watch the beautiful movement of the fish. Diverse plants and native trees, as well as a pleasant climate seven months a year are among the outstanding characteristics of the island.

The island has attracted many tourists, travelers and writers throughout history due to these very characteristics. Among those who have written in praise of this island are Niarkhous, the Greek navy commander who traveled to Kish in 225 B.C., and wrote about its beautiful palm fields, Marco Polo, Ibn Batuta and Hamdullah Mostofi, as well as Ms. Fatemeh Al Ali the contemporary Kuwaiti writer who traveled to Kish in February 2002 and compared the island to a “gem on a king’s crown”.


Kish is lies between the 53 degrees and 53 minutes ,to 54 degrees and 4 minutes of the eastern longitude of the Greenwich Meridian, and 26 degrees and 29 minutes, and 26 degrees and 35 minutes of the northern latitude.

With an area of 90,547 square kilometers, the island is located only 18 km off the southern coast of the Islamic Republic of Iran. This beautiful oval-shaped island is 15 km long and seven km wide.

The map below shows the distance between Kish and a number of islands, ports, cities and the nearest country:

The distance from Kish to Tehran is 1052 km by air and 1600 km by land. Kish is at a distance of 1200 km from Isfahan, Iran’s historic and tourist destination city which attracts thousands of international visitors each year.


Kish is an almost flat island with an average altitude of 22 meters above the sea level. The highest region of the island (in the east) is 45 meters above the sea level. The island has shallow fissures formed as a result of erosion by heavy winter showers.



Kish has a warm and humid climate with an average temperature of 30 degrees Celsius. The weather is temperate and pleasant in fall, winter and two months into the spring.


The humidity is high in the majority of the months of the year. The humid season begins in mid April and continues for nine months.


Kish receives little and varying rainfall like in other parts of the Persian Gulf. The average annual rainfall in the island is 170 mm, 82 % of which falls in winter, 10 % in fall and the rest in spring and summer. The rain falls in the form of strong drizzle in spring and summer, and in small continuous drops in winter.


The native people of Kish are a combination of Iranians and Arab- Iranians of the country’s southern provinces, who had migrated to the island during its ancient times of prosperity. Thus they speak Farsi and Arabic. The complexion of the native people is dark and their physical characteristics are similar to those of the natives of the southern Iran. The majority of people are Sunni or Shiite Muslims who have established a strong link with each other throughout history.

Based on the census carried out in 2001, Kish has a population of 16501 comprising 4454 households. The increase in population is the result of the migration of Iranians from all parts of the country who come to work or invest in Kish. This has created considerable job opportunities and encouraged more migration to the island.

According to the programs envisaged for the Comprehensive Development Plan of Kish, in terms of urban infrastructure, public facilities and local resources, the island will be capable of providing for an estimated population of 200,000.

The island has a youthful population. Around 49.7% of the population is in the 25-64 age group, economically classified as active. The current population structure is a reflection of the inflow of job-seekers. With the ongoing development projects coming to fruition, the population structure is expected to normalize, approaching the patterns in other regions of the country.

When the ship was still in service this area was for use of First Class passengers only. On the port (left) side where you see the Past Times store there used to be the Cigar Shop, and just behind that was the First Class Library, now converted to two stores. On the starboard (right) side to the far edge of the photo was the area that used to be the flower shop, and right behind that is the former First Class Drawing Room.

The First Class Drawing Room was also used on Sunday's for Catholic services. While Church of England passengers could use the onboard chapel for services, Catholic First Class passengers would use the Drawing Room. The Drawing Room used to contain (and I believe still does although it's a store now) a partition that could be removed on Sundays to reveal a painting called "The Madonna of the Atlantic" for Catholic services.

But the Drawing Room has far more historic moment in its past.

According to one of our guides (and I haven't confirmed this, but the guy was a history grad student at the local university so I'm trusting him on this one :-) Winston Churchill often traveled on the Queen Mary, and used it several times to cross the Atlantic to the United States during the war years. These voyages were kept completely secret for reasons of security, of course, and when on board Churchill and his staff would use the Drawing Room as their offices for staying in touch with war events and conducting business.

So it was that was here in mid-voyage in 1944 that Churchill signed the order for the D-Day Invasion.
