 Jamnagar  is  situated  in  India’s  first  Marine  National  Sanctuary  covering  an  area  of  approx  450  sq  km.  in  Gulf  on  Kutch.
 There  are  many  small  islands  where  Corals  and  other  Marine  life  is  easily  visible.
 It  is  said  to  be  one  of  the  few  places  where  at  low  tide  you  can  walk  far  into  the  sea  and  observe  Corals.
 One  of  such  Islands  is  “Narara  Island”  situated  50  km  from  Jamnagar.
 I  made  a  visit  to  this  place  along  with  some  friends  and  it  was  a  heavenly  experience.
 The  best  thing  about  this  island  is  that  during  low  tide  you  can  drive  down  to  the  island  and  you  don’t  have  to  take  the  boat.
 The  first  step  in  making  this  trip  is  getting  permission  from  forest  dept,.
 We  got  this  permission  and  came  to  know  that  they  depute  a  forest  guard  to  accompany  you.
 At  first  we  did  not  like  this  unwanted  intrusion,  but  it  later  on  proved  to  be  a  good  thing.
 The  trip  can  only  be  arranged  during  low  tide  conditions,  also  you  have  to  get  back  before  tide  starts  turning  or  else  you  might  get  struck.
 Accordingly  we  instructed  to  report  at  11:30  am  on  Sunday  19-4-2009.
 We  reached  there  right  on  time,  myself  and  two  friends.

 We  are  given  strict  instruction  by  the  guard
 Do  not  try  to  collect  anything  as  it  is  a  restricted  area.
 Do  not  wander  off.
 As  you  will  be  walking  amongst  corals  it  was  important  that  you  do  not  step  on  anything.
 As  he  was  getting  ready  we  took  some  snaps  of  surroundings.

PATH  TO  THE  PARADISE:  contd:

 
 We  Started  on  our  Trek,  and  had  no  idea  about  the  distance  to  be  covered,  the  sea  at  low  tide  goes  back.  nearly  1.5  km  so  we  had  to  cover  a  lot  of  distance.
 
 We  started  from  here

PATH  TO  THE  PARADISE:  contd:

 
 And  walked,  walked,  walked,walked,walked,walked
 When  I  was  sure  I  had  reached  Pakistan(which  is  near),  and  murderous  glares  from  my  conned  friend's,
 I  turned  back  and  took  a  picture  of  the  way  we  had  came.
 The  “X”  marks  the  corresponding  spot  in  the  picture  above  this  one.
 The  tree  in  pictures  are  mangroves  and  represent  the  High  tide  line.
 The  spot  from  where  this  picture  was  taken  is  not  even  near  to  sea  at  low  tide
