Photographer's Note

Hengam Island is located at south of Qeshm Island and in the Persian Gulf. Hengam Island is 36.6 km wide with the truncated cone shape. The island is generally Calcareous and generally low lying. The highest point on the island is Nakas Mountain that is about 106 meters. The distance between Hengam Island and Qeshm Island is about 2 km through the sea.

The primary economic activity is fishing, though there is some tourism and sightseeing on the Island. From the beach, many aquatic animals such as turtles, dolphins, corals, and sharks can be seen.

Most people travel to this island from the Qeshm island and by the motor boats as you see in the shot the one which took us there. This beach is also called silvery beach, because of the black parts you see in the coast which glitter under the sunlight. However, those bright spots are made of iron!
