Iran - Persian Gulf (Chapter)
This is the Persian Gulf chapter from Lonely Planet’s Iran guidebook.
Few geographical descriptors are as evocative – and as controversial – as the Persian Gulf. Those interested in eco- and cultural tourism will love Qeshm Island, but the rest of the region offers little to the traveller other than long, hot journeys.
- spend a day cycling around Kish Island
- explore the biodiverse waters of the Harra Sea Forest
- marvel at the sculptural Chahkooh Canyon in Qeshm’s extraordinary Geopark
- restaurants and accommodation
Coverage includes: Kish Island, Bandar e-Lengeh, Bandar Abbas, Qeshm Island and Hormoz Island.
