The locals call it El Megrah because the island has a natural rock pier connecting it to the southern shore of lake Qaroun. However parts of this pier are visible only when the water level of the lake is low.


The island is considered a fishing post used by local fishermen.


The island is a perfect spot for picnics and bird watching with a marvelous view of the surrounding landscape.
