Welcome to Failaka Island

Alas, recent history has deemed otherwise. First, Iraqi forces established a heavily fortified base on Failaka, paying scant regard to the relics over which they strewed their hardware, and then Allied personnel were billeted there, with equally pitiful regard for antiquities.

Thanks to the new resort, the island is once again open to visitors and is beginning to assume its rightful importance at last, although it will be some time before access to the archaeological sites will be possible.
