Hormuz Island is one of the vastly fascinating islands of Iran in the Persian Gulf, which is laden with natural and historical attractions. This oval-shaped island with an area of 42 square kilometers is located near the Strait of Hormuz and 8 kilometers from Bandar Abbas.
This Island is one of the few indigenous places in Iran where tourists are not allowed to enter by vehicle, and for this reason, the nature of this island has remained very pristine and untouched.
Hormuz Island is known to most people for its red soil, but red soil is not what you just see on this island. Sightseeing and traveling on the silver, golden, white, and red sand of the island is a remarkable pleasure that you cannot experience anywhere in the world.
