Karachi is the excellent example of cosmopolitan. Despite of the recent acts of violence, Karachi is well populated by foreign tourists for both recreational and knowledge purposes. At what places to pay a visit in Karachi? What to miss and not to? Where to go and where not go? Let’s check the three hard to skip destinations in Karachi.
Centrally located in Karachi, is the mausoleum of founder of Pakistan Muhammad Ali Jinnah. It is the essence and pride of Karachi. It is been converted to a recreational park with lush green meadows, shaded benches, numerous cafes and outlets of eatables and a laid ground. The mausoleum itself is a white-bricked building secured by navy-guards.
Sea View – Clifton Beach
If you miss Sea View, believe me, you have visited nothing in Karachi. It is the most beautiful and eye-catching public beach. It has sheltered areas and well-built huts to camp in and enjoy the beach vista in front especially the tranquil sunsets. Sea View also presents the 2nd highest jet fountain of the world. Boats are available to go deep in the sea and have a closer of the splendid fountain.
Visit to Manora Island in the harbor of Karachi, is an obligatory visit. Its military base is open for general public and tourists. The light house is amazing to see, which was built more than 100 years ago. You can rent a boat to sail in the deep waters, fares are very minimal here. The well-known Kemari Port is a 15 minute boat ride from Manora.
It’s called Gulpiyuri Beach, and is relatively isolated, so it is preserved almost intact. Gulpiyuri is a beach that curiously, is inland among green meadows. The explanation is that in a coastline of cliffs of karst origin, the sea was able to dig a cave inward while a collision (as a sinkhole) left a hole of about 100 meters from the coast and connected with the sea.
The cave then connects with the sand and the “interior beach” which is truly an enviable beauty. The Gulpiyuri beach is accessible from the beach of San Antolin, halfway between Ribadesella and Llanes, and north of the Town of Ships.
If you see it in one of the brochures used to promote the Whitsunday Islands in Australia , you’d think an image is manipulated, especially by their colors and shades. And yet, it is said that the view from the balcony entrance to the Bay Area is one of the most beautiful scenic beaches in the world. The Whitehaven beach is the main attraction of the islands, an area of 4.5 kilometers of fine sand, white and bright, as well as being perfect and unique in that it does not burn your feet when exposed to sunlight, thanks to its mineral composition.
Whitehaven is known for its natural beauty, on an island only accessible by tour boats. To make matters worse, the beach is renowned for its conservation and environmental policies. To enjoy, we leave you with images of the place:
