"Island Fisherfolk" Top 5 Page for this destination Mumbai Off The Beaten Path Tip by keeweechic

Mumbai Off The Beaten Path: 106 reviews and 172 photos


The island only takes up 6 sq miles. As you approach Elephanta island you will see a small fishing village near the waters edge. This is one of only three on the island. All three have no electricity and no running water. Those that do not make their livelihood out of fishing are obviously involved in the tourism aspect of the island.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
