Kish Island is a flat land devoid of any significant natural
elevation. Its highest point, located in the eastern part, is about 45
meters above sea level. Therefore, the shores extend to the sea with a
relatively easy slope.
There are shallow scars in the land itself which is the result of
erosion by the flow of surface water during the winter - time's heavy
rain falls. However, the island's beaches, coming about mainly due to
the sea's direction and its waves, can be divided into two distinct
1- Rocky reefs in the western and northern section
2- Flat sandy beaches in the southern and mainly eastern section
Conducted by the National Iranian Oil Company, a geological topography
has identified the types of rocks the same as the Bakhtiari
conglomerate in southern part of Iran. The topography and ensuing
study dated formation of the island even before the Jurassic period.
