    hi there just wanting to know if there are any beaches that westerners can sunbath on,I go to the hotels sometimes but would just love to do a normal beach

    1. Hi Anon, if you are a male you can go just about anywhere however as a female(without nerves of steel) then I would stick to the hotel clubs. Hope someone else can be more helpful.

    2. In kuwait is not allowed men with shorts above their knees neither women with bikini or some thing similar in public beaches.

    3. Hmmm better tell the men that they don't seem to be aware. And a woman in a bikini on a public beach here would have to be out of her mind.

    hello..i just got a call from LOYAC for the summer program i applied too. I am an indian and am 21 years old. however i am a but reluctant to appear in the interview as i fear discrimination, (i feel i might be rejected on the basis, sad but true in Kuwait). I just wanted to ask if any expats have interned through loyac and how was their experience.

  4. Hi,
