Oyster Rocks

Ever wondered what the rock like structure is, if standing at the sea view, facing the sea ???
It’s the “Oyster Rocks”.
Ride on boats can be taken from Kemari. The service is offered by KPT.
An amazing place, an under-water cave, reachable in low tides. The boat sails inside the dark tunnel and crystal like rocks can be seen on lighting up a torch. A fun place to hang around with friends.

I living in Karachi, for the last 10 years, did not know about this place.And now that I know, I feel more in love with Karachi.

    Better be careful about getting out of that cave before the tide comes marching in. Don’t have very fond memories of a similar incident on the Gharo / Dhabeji marshlands.
    By the way lets see when they sell these rocks off to some arab entity to be converted into a private resort.

    I am visiting Karachi and I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I could buy a hookah/shisha for relatively cheap? Thanks.

    Adil, the islands in question are different than these.. You can hardly put anything on those rocks worth calling resort.

    Unaiza,

    Thanks, for the info. I definitely going to take that ride and let the family and friend know about this new found fun in Karachi.

    Like Mansoror, i too think that the rocks cannot be made inhabitable, the islands are a completly different story.Nice work unazia, i too was unaware about these caves.These miracles of nature are definetly worth a visit but more detail in your post would have been helpful

    AMBER-There is a place next to Damascus where you can Sheesh’s ..i can’t say anything about the cheap part..how old are you exactly ?

    ~Orkid~

    @ Amber: yes “Dhuandar” is the place where u can get sheeshas, its near Damscus.


  9. danny (unregistered) on November 5th, 2006 @ 7:54 am

    Thanks for the post. How much are tickets? Do you know the timings?


  10. Anathema (unregistered) on November 5th, 2006 @ 1:00 pm

    Sheeshas are available at all placecs, not dhuandar alone. u can get them at major supermarkets too.

    prices differ depending on shape, size and attachment qualities.


  11. mansoor (unregistered) on November 5th, 2006 @ 2:10 pm

    the ticket prices are whatever u can haggle with the boatpeople, and the timings are whenever its low tide. Just be sure to get out before high tide comes rolling in :D

    @mansoor
    i’ve been to those rocks and despite their lack of potential to be converted into a private report style spot, i still feel that our ever willing authorities might sell it if there is some party willing to contest it into a sort of club or something. Btw the view from the hilltop is awesome.

    @ Orkid ::

    “i too think that the rocks cannot be made inhabitable”

    I think you meant “habitable.”


  14. UZi (unregistered) on November 5th, 2006 @ 9:45 pm

  15. Faisal siddiqui (unregistered) on November 7th, 2006 @ 2:44 am

    i actually used to go scuba diving out there. well i have once or twice. there’s a few boat/ship wrecks just south of there which are sort of fun to dive. i don’t know how bad the water quality is now. i dived about twelve years ago in those parts. it wasn’t too great back then. the better diving spots are at cape monz in balochistan and towards churna island.
