Narar Island

Narara is one of the beaches covered by the National Park. It is about 60 km away from Jamnagar, off the Jamnagar-Dwaraka highway. We made an early dash to Narara thanks to my miscalculation of the tide timings.

Marine National Park in the Gulf of Kutch is one of the very few of its kind in India. It is located in the southern part of Gulf of Kutch in Jamnagar district (Gujarat). It consists of several islands and is filled with sandy beaches, coral reefs and mangroves. Pirotan island is the best known (relatively speaking !) of the lot.

This is one of the rare places in the world where one can look at corals without having to dive down into the water. One just has to walk in the water, when the tide ebbs, in about 1 to 2 feet of water and watch this facinating underwater world of corals.
