But better check with tide charts (levels) and plan the visit as we need to walk in the shallow waters for almost 2 to 3 Km in the sea. Buy an entrance ticket and you can even a hire... More

The name of the place is Narara Marine national park. Check with the internet about high tide and low tide timings. Wear some sandals or slippers as the water levels are high till ankle. You will have to walk almost 2 kms into the sea to see the actual aquatic life. Reach early and hire a guide immediately because without... More

You will definitely get to see corals, sponges, mud skipper, crabs, shells, sea cucumber and much more. If lucky enough, you get to see octopus, puffer fish and sea anemone too.

Narara..This place is around 90 kms far from Jamnagar, Gujarat. The connectivity is an issue, if you depend on public transport. I recommend you to go by your own vehicle or hire some vehicle. The forest department office which issues permission opens at 09:00 am. INR 50 is the entry fee per person and INR 200 is for still camera.... More

It's called Narara island few kms away from Jamnagar. Beautiful marine national park and something unique that you can see beautiful coral and marine life without going under water as you just have to walk as the water is just about a 50cm. To and fro about 5/6 km and take approximately 3 hrs. Make sure you were crocks or... More
