Failaka Island, Kuwait City

(1.4/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
See the remains of churches from the Byzantine era at Failaka Island. You'll walk on the grounds where Mesopotamians walked 2,000 years BCE and see pottery dating from 7th century. Before the invasion of Iraq people lived on the island, but today what's left of their former homes are riddled with bullet holes. Witness ancient remains and imagine what life looked like before the war. On site, go to the restaurant and try some local dishes. You can also rent a boat and go sailing or fishing here. Use our Kuwait City vacation trip planner to add Failaka Island and other attractions to your Kuwait City vacation plans.
