Qeshm from Iran, on the southern coasts, has formed the largest island in the Persian Gulf and the strait of Hormuz, towards the Makran sea and the Indian Ocean, which is located Along with the Hengam island in the south, is approximately at a distance of 26°-30` to 27°-5` north, and from the east to 55°-15` to 56°-20` to the east.
In addition to the Hengam Island, the satellite and other relatively large islands of Iran, such as Hormuz and Larak, in the immediate vicinity of Qeshm, form a part of the Iranian coast overlooking the Strait of Hormuz at the entrance to the Persian Gulf.
The Persian Gulf, with an area of 225,000 square kilometers, has different latitudes. Its minimum width is 180 kilometers and its maximum width is 300 kilometers. The length of the Persian Gulf from the mouth of Arvand River to the Strait of Hormuz is 900 kilometers.
The depth of the Persian Gulf is about 50 to 80 meters in the east and about 10 to 30 meters in the west. The deepest part of the Persian Gulf is a trench at a depth of 93 meters, located 15 kilometers south of the Greater Tunb Island. The Persian Gulf is one of the major centers for fish and pearl catchments, and is seen at the bottom of the vast massive coral reefs. Due to the continuation of the Zagros oilseed to the south, in the lower layers of the Persian Gulf there are significant oil and gas resources, a large part of which has been exploited. Because of the narrow width of the Strait of Hormuz, the Persian Gulf tide is always a little bit behind the tides of free seas.
Qeshm Island, about 110 km long, has the largest sea fish in the sea.
The area of Qeshm Island is approximately between 1536 and 1601 square kilometers, respectively, from the maximum to the lowest sea level, in particular at the time of the full tide, about 195 km2 can be added to the area.
The shortest distance from Qeshm Island to its motherland is 2400 ≠ 100 meters and through the coast of Laft in the middle of the island.
With its ancient history and its unique culture, Pars has a special significance, which shows the ancient works and traditions based on the Iranian knowledge of the island and the region.
Vegetation in the Qeshm area is mostly warm and salt-water, and mangrove forests make up the widest community with a vast area of the northern coasts of this island.
In terms of climate, Qeshm is a warm region (average annual heat of about 27 ° C), has a relatively dry land and low rainfall (an average of about 150 mm) but with high air humidity (an average of 74% throughout the year). In this area, the wind is mostly mild and sometimes more intense in a trend towards the northwest. Sea level changes in the roundabout distances around Qeshm Island are between 2 and 4 meters. The altitude of the waves is also on the east coast of Qeshm with a maximum of about 1 meter and on the south coast to about 3 meters and in some cases up to 5 M is predictable.
