Narara Reef

Narara Reef

Narara Reef located next to Vadinar village which is surrounded by oil terminals and jetties. When one enters the soiled road that head to Marine National Park, flocks of Flamingo and Pelican in old salt pan area attracts everyone. The marine ecosystem starts with salt marshes, mangroves and leads to intertidal zone which is enriched with numerous organisms like sea weeds, octopus, puffer fish, stingray, sea stars, sea cucumber, corals, anemones, crabs etc. It is a rocky shore and patch of sand with sea grass vegetation. The place also has a spectacular vista with birds feeding on fishes in the intertidal region. Since it is Protected Area, tourists are not allowed pick things like shells, stones, dead coral etc. and do not catch or disturb any marine creature, as they are already in stress.
