Hengam is an island along the southern coast of Qeshm, approximately 10km long and 5km wide. The island can be accessed from the harbour of Shibderaz. Here boats bring tourists to Hengam island. It is easy to see dolphins in the sea between Hengam island and Qeshm. The original inhabitants of Hengam relocated to the U.A.E. after the Iranian revolution, so that now the area is populated by Iranians who moved in after that. There is a nice beach and a small market in the spot where the tourist boats arrive.
