  • Stay overnight at a hotel in Karachi.

Note:  Keep in mind that the ship breaking yard is a hazardous area, so it’s important to follow safety guidelines and wear appropriate clothing and gear. All foreigners wishing to explore any region of Baluchistan need an NOC (No objection certificate) before they depart for their journey, which can be obtained at least 10-15 days before they make their travel plan. The NOC can only be obtained on valid passports with valid Pakistani visas. 


  • Named after a small fishing village with around 10,000 inhabitants in Balochistan’s Lasbela District, the beautiful coast of Gadani beach is surrounded by rocky cliffs near Cape Monze beach and estuary of the hub river. The beach is located 50 kilometres northwest of Karachi and serves as a perfect picnic spot, beckoning for you to lie back and marvel at the sight of the open waters of the Arabian Sea, while having your toes dug in the silky sand on the shore. Thanks to the nearby presence of Gadani Ship-breaking yard, which is Pakistan’s largest and oldest graveyard of ships, the coast is fascinatingly lined with rusting wreckage of ship hulls and mighty vessels that once ruled the sea.
  • Some exciting things to do on and near Gadani Beach include:
  • Have a mouth-watering serving of seawater fish at a local restaurant
  • Ride camels, enjoy boat rides or go on a fishing escapade
