As a conservative Islamic countries, there are things that foreigners should be aware of before going to beaches in Kuwait. Here are quick points to keep in mind:
Bikinis: Bikinis aren’t allowed in public beaches. However many private hotels allow it. So before going, make sure to ask the hotel about regulations.
Public show of affection: While it may seem common in Western countries to cuddle and kiss in public, such acts usually not acceptable around Kuwait. So keep that in mind while on the beach. Even private ones could cause issue if they consider it inappropriate.
No Alcohol: Alcohol is not allowed in Kuwait, and this also applies to private hotel beaches.
