Sirik has great tourism and economic potential

The coastal city of Sirik, located in the eastern part of Hormuzgan Province, is keeping up with the Oman Sea’s Coastal Development Plan. The government has recognized the tourism potential of this region and is taking steps to develop it.
With a population of 53,000, it is one of the six coastal towns of Hormuzgan Province. Due to its proximity to the Sea of Oman and the Strait of Hormuz, it has the potential to become a tourism hub and the golden gateway to beautiful beaches.
This town has unique beaches, beautiful landscapes, natural and divine views, and suitable welfare facilities and equipment, making it one of the important tourist destinations in Hormuzgan Province.
Sirik is surrounded by 76 villages under its supervision. Due to its geographical location and suitable coastal and marine conditions, Sirik has the potential to develop tourism, export and import sectors, especially considering its proximity to the countries bordering the Persian Gulf. This development can create favorable social and cultural conditions for economic prosperity, not only for the people of the region but also for many people in other parts of the country.
Speaking in an interview with IRNA, Abbas Raeisi, deputy head of Hormuzgan Province’s Cultural Heritage, Tourism, and Handicrafts Organization for tourism affairs, said that lighting of 400 meters of beaches in Sirik’s City Park has been provided.
He added that the eastern coasts of Hormuzgan Province, especially Sirik, are easily accessible to tourists due to being alongside the main road.
He said that creating a tourism infrastructure can have a significant impact on the economy and employment in the region. By investing in the tourism infrastructure, steps can be taken to improve the quality of life for residents and promote economic growth.
Sirik County is set to have the second-largest port in Hormuzgan Province, after Shahid Rajaee Port. This development is expected to have a significant impact on the economy and employment in the region.
This port would have commercial, fishing, and tourism applications. The projects for the construction of internal and external access routes in the east of Hormuzgan Province have progressed by 91%. This development is a positive sign for the growing economic transactions and the prosperity of maritime trade in the region. The construction of access routes will improve the transportation infrastructure and facilitate the movement of goods and people.
