Kuwait Beaches

Kuwait boasts a beautiful setting on the Persian Gulf, with some of the Middle East’s most spectacular coastline. For both residents and travellers in the country, Kuwait beaches offer a great place to relax by picturesque waters.

The best beaches in Kuwait

One of Kuwait’s best beaches is Messilah Beach. This private stretch of sand is among the country’s biggest, offering pure white sands and beckoning azure waters. Messilah Beach is particularly popular with families, and children and adults flock to its many swimming pools every weekend.

For holidaymakers travelling with friends, Al Oqeila Beach may be more appealing. This beach offers barbeque facilities, so you can enjoy an al fresco meal as the sun sets over the Persian Gulf. Away from Kuwait City, take a ferry to Failaka Island and visit Wanasa Beach, at Failaka Heritage Village. This blissful beach is ideal for people who want a day trip away from the mainland, and the attractions of the heritage village offer plenty to do away from the beach too.

Water sports and boat trips

The Persian Gulf is home to a diversity of marine life and scuba diving trips can be arranged by many operators in Kuwait. Beginners can visit Aqua City and take scuba diving lessons before venturing into the water.

Boat trips offer another great way to explore the coastline. Charter a yacht in the capital and sail up the country’s coast for an adventurous way to see the capital. Special boat rides on traditional dhows also offer interactive insight into Kuwait’s maritime heritage.
