  • This is best site for exploring the marine diversity, mangrove ecosystem, coral ecosystem and coastal ecosystem. It is easily approachable from the good road network and easily accessible. Their is a good informative illustration and two interpretation center to gain your knowledge about marine ecosystem. Their is a highly informative nature interpreter, they have good knowledge about marine life and they conserve all type ecosystem.
  • Please check tide timings before visiting. You can contact forest department. If timing is good you can see Vivid water creatures. Though need some more development from government but Worth visiting.
  • It's one of best place to visit specially for sea creatures. First of all make sure to figure out perfect timing for tide. You can only go there in low tide. And it's totally possible to spot most of sea creatures. You also need to find a guide there. I have visited this place before 2 days but i was late and there was no any guide available. So that my visit was not more existing. If you really wanna see sea life then reach there at 6 AM. And be carefully come back before high tide, there is totally possibility of accident. You have to carry these things - shorts, full sleeve t-shirt, sunscreen lotion, cap, sunglasses, for footwear waterproof shoes will be better, don't wear chhapal or sandal for safety reasons. I just fall in love with this place. I'm gonna visit again with proper timing.
  • Very beautiful and lesser known place one should visit if you love marine life. Make sure you check high tide before you visit or call the representative there as it is only allow during low tide.
  • Just one sentence : "If you have not seen Narara Reef, then your Gujarat Tour is incomplete" Never ever even think of skipping this place in your GJ itinerary. It is out of the world experience. You can't get this experience in any other place in India. It is terrifically unique. The tourism office is well managed. The guides are good. The aquatics is some thing unique. Go till the end of the reef, for around a couple of kilometers; and you can even experience Octopus. I will give 6* for this place.

Where to stay in Jamnagar

Jamnagar's reputation as an oil hub has overshadowed its tourism potential, so the city receives few tourists and doesn't offer a particularly broad selection of accommodations. Those on offer--primarily mid-range to luxurious hotels--lie in a few clusters, one just north of the lake, and the other farther north in the district of Vijay Nagar Society. A handful of very basic options can be found scattered around the city center.
