The Marine National Park is an amazing hidden treasure - hardly talked about - hardly advertised. Maybe its good that way - to avoid interference by hordes of visitors. Was able to see some beautiful marine life there. Maybe the place could be better maintained.

To start with, there is infact a lot of confusion about the marine national park in gujarat. There is very little information available on the internet. Even the pamphlet they give at the office is in gujarati language. Basically MNP is the group of nearly 40 islands located in the gulf of kutch in the district of jamnagar. These islands... More

Narara Marine Park (approx. 50+kms from Jamnagar city) is a very good place to see the rich marine biodiversity. Unfortunately, this place is rarely spoken about in the print media or by the state level tour operators. Ideal time to visit this place is during the winters. Please check the timings of the tide before starting your beach/floor walk. It’s... More

We visited there on the December of 2005 as a part of our zoological excursion. Our initial plans were to go to the Pirotan island but because of some unavoidable reasons eventually we went to Narara sea bed. It is around 30 mins from the Jamnagar city. The sea beach is exposed at times of low tide which leaves behind... More

the kids and us loved the experience. did feel some guilt that we as visitors may inadvertently cause environmental damage by walking all over the corals. be careful where you step and leave it as you found it.

My visit to the National Park was totally unplanned and hence I was in for quiet a surprise. On arrival, I was told that one has to walk in ankle deep water and so they suggested I wear any kind of shoes that will protect ones feet from the sharp corals strewn around. If possible one should try and wear... More
