Karachi Off The Beaten Path: 53 reviews and 144 photos

Situated on the furthest end of Karachi approx. 35 km away, Mubarak Village is a 400 year old fishing village. The village itself is considered one of the oldest settlement of this fishing port.

The sea coast and the water are much cleaner than any beach in Karachi. However there are no huts or hotels here. Even entries may be restricted to visitors that the villagers may not know. This restriction came about when hundreds and thousands of revelers started coming to this village, disturbing their peaceful lives and leaving behind rubbish.

So the village elders decided to close entries to revelers; though it is open for regular fishermen, scuba diving enthusiasts, and families.

From Mubarak Village there is a great view of Chrurna Island about 2 km from the coast. Hub river delta is close to the Village and one can also see the Hubco power generation plant across the river.

Mubarak village is a launching pad for people who are interested in going out to open sea for sports fishing or to Churna Island for scuba diving. You can rent boats or launches from Mubarak Village or from a Sonehra Beach, few kilometers before the village.

How to get there: From Muripur road, you keep going straight past various shops till you reach a fork. The road going left (with a toll booth) takes you to towards Sandspit and Manora, and the road going right towards Hawksbay, French beach, Paradise point, Cape Monze and Nathiagali. Take right from this point till you reach a T. From here again take a right going towards French beach. Half a km from this T there is a road going towards Mubarak Village. From here it is an approx. half hour drive, and the road makes a very long U till you reach the village.

BEWARE: Only go on this road in day time, do not go alone, go with a group of friends or family members.
