Found in: Islands of Kuwait
Shuwaikh Island , also known as Qurain Island, and Akkaz Island, is a former island of Kuwait within Kuwait bay. As an island, it resided about 1 kilometer away from the coast and was roughly 12,000 square meters in size. Shuwaikh Island is an archeological site with pieces dating back to 2000 B.C.. The "island" is now joined to the Shuwaikh industrial area as an extension via land bridge and therefore no longer exists as an island.
