This is a little know marine national park on the outskirts of Jamnagar in Gujarat on the way to Dwarka. 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

Wear hat and comfortable shoes that can get wet. Bring water, food, and bug spray. Requires stamina to walk across the mudflats to the edge of water (~2-3 hours). The walk through the intertidal area at low tide is completely fascinating with lots of small sea life. But designated trails need to be laid out to protect the marine habitat,... More

It is a marine national park not to be missed. Very educative but you should always take a certified guide else the trip will be a waste. You will have to take permission from forest department and buy a ticket available at the entrance. Start as early as possible in the morning because as the sun goes up it becomes... More
