You can only access this mosque when the tide is down as the path to get there is completely submerged.
I've been here around 5 times on separate visits during my visits to Mumbai. It's full of locals (both Hindus and Muslims) many of whom climb the rocks at the back of the building. Be sure to walk around the whole place - despite the mayhem and crowds, you can find some respite around the back, where people are either praying in silence, or sitting on benches.
You'll find a lot of people (including the blind and disabled) lining the path to the Mosque, and also street vendors selling souvenirs and flowers and religious items. It's not a particularly pretty sight, and you may get haggled (though I find it much less than other places in India), plus there's a lot of rubbish dumped around the sea, but if you're in Mumbai you're presumably not there for the tranquility and fresh air!
If you go there at the right time you may be lucky enough to hear the blind Sufi singers which is quite beautiful to listen to.
Visit this place if you want to experience a holy Muslim site in the sea, and yet in the heart of Mumbai. It's quite a unique experience.
