Beyt Dwarka is a famous religious Hindu pilgrim place. But besides that, it has much more to offer. The place is rich in a variety of winter migratory birds and marine life such as corals, sea anemones, crabs, puffer fish, star fish, jelly fish, octopuses, sea snakes and dolphins all of which are an integral part of the marine ecosystem that exists in Beyt Dwarka. It takes around 45 minutes via boat from Okha jetty to reach the island. It is a sandy belt in the Gulf of Kutch which is famous for its clear blue waters which are calm and safe. Wilderness India’s “Explore Life Underwater camp” to Beyt Dwarka will take you to this magical, beautiful, untouched and enchanting island.

The place is one of the very few islands on the western coast of India where you can see both the sun rise and sun set from the ocean. People who have seen this breath taking view, take along with them a life time memory.

The accommodation at the camp site will be in unique “jute” tent huts. The place is entirely untouched by civilisation and you will be all by yourself at the camp site.

 

Exploring the sea shore and daily trekking on different parts of the island.

Star gazing sessions with experts.

Trips to see the marine ecosystem – coral, sponge, sea snake, starfish, puffer fish, octopus, sea anemone and if lucky even DOLPHIN !

Daily group bath in the ocean before sunrise and enjoying the sunrise from the ocean.

Trekking to a nearby dandy hanuman temple with experts explaining about the history and importance of the temple.

Sandcastle making, camp fun and nature games.
