Pakistan is famous for its rich historical and cultural heritage, but not many know that the coastline of Pakistan has its fine share of spectacular beaches.
In fact, you will find a slew of spectacular beaches in the provinces of Baluchistan and Sindh. Come, have a look at the top three beaches in Pakistan.
Clifton beach, also known as Seaview, is the most popular beach in Pakistan. Situated near the Dolmen Mall Clifton in Karachi, it is a great place for recreation. With camel rides, monkey shows, and lots of restaurants, it is a family-friendly place for picnics and social gatherings. In 2003, the area was affected by an oil-spill which deteriorated the charm, yet it still remains a great spot for evening strollers, tourists and a social point for the locals.
French Beach, situated between Paradise Point and Hawkes Bay is located near a small fishing village. The villagers have set up about 90 huts here that are available for rent. The beach is rockier than most of the other nearby beaches and the waters are cleaner than at the Clifton beach. The beach is perfect for various water-sports activities such as scuba diving, snorkelling and surfing. Most of these activities are carried out in the monsoon as the weather is favourable during July to September. As there aren’t many places to eat at, visitors should carry their food and drink.
Situated in West Karachi, it is another famous tourist spot in the area. Unlike the Clifton Beach, the waters at at Sandspit are much calmer from fall to spring every year. October through March is the ideal time to visit the place. On your visit you will also be able to see various types of marine creatures such as crabs and marine algae on the beach. The calm and quiet surroundings of the beach make it an ideal place to unwind at. In fact, the beach is one of the best places for sunbathing.
