A must visit for people interested in nature. Find out the visit timings from Hotel President, Jamnagar. Visiting here depends on tide timings which change daily. Remember to wear shoes and carry water and snacks.

The first one in India where you can have the privilege to experience the joy of spotting sea life by merely walking in the sea. In most countries spotting an octopus in its natural habitat is possible only through scuba... More
