Kubbar Island

Kubbar is a sandy island of Kuwait in the Persian Gulf, covered with shrub. It is located roughly 30 kilometers off the southern coast of Kuwait and 29 kilometres off the coast of Failaka. The island is nearly circular, with a diameter of 370 to 380 meters, corresponding to an area of about 11 ha. It is sandy, with low coasts and sparsely vegetated. The island is inhabited by various forms of wildlife.

Kubbar is surrounded by coral reefs and is therefore popular with scuba divers.

The coral reefs in this region are included in the regular ongoing voluntary work of the renowned award-winning Kuwait Dive Team (KDT), a group voted by United Nations as the best in the world.
