Be it day or night..be it summer or winter.this place in Mumbai is always crowded with tourists.Good place to visit if you like to sit by the sea however these days a lot hawkers steal your peace,go for a boat ride in the Arabian sea if you like to talk to the waves.

This a tourist attraction place most visited in Mumbai.. The place offers boat ride in ferries.. However, I will suggest that you book a ride with Gateway sailing club private ride.. I booked the seabird class ride.. which was a wind powered boat.. It was really amazing and romantic ride..

You can take a ferry to visit the world famous Elephanta Caves from here. The plague in front... More

You may be hit by the number of people trying to sell you photograph's here. You will struggle to get through this and they keep coming up. whilst some of the items are cheap they are not quality. I urge you to buy a piece or two as they are their bread and butter. this is really great piece of... More
