Located off the coast of Kuwait City’s promenade, Green Island is an artificial island in Kuwait. Opened in February 1988, the island is a popular tourist attraction, stretching over an area of 785,000 square metres (8.5 million square feet). The idea for the island was to offer an escape from the usual desert scenery. Here, you can take part in a number of activities including biking, walking and even scuba diving. And if you feel the need to sit back and take a break from the hustle and bustle, you can simply sit along the coastline, which offers a great view of the city.
