Sea anemone

About the Walk

Colourful sea sponges, different types of snails and sea anemones, hermit crabs that use seashells as homes, and even corals. You can expect to find all these beautiful creatures at a blue, coastal destination, but they’re right here, at the watery, concretised edge of Mumbai city. At this bustling urban jungle’s doorstep, lies an entire forgotten marine world.

Join us for a shore walk that will introduce you to a side of Mumbai that you’ve probably never seen before.

A little distance from one of the most crowded beaches in Mumbai, lies a rocky shore full of hidden gems, revealed by the retreating tide. A walk at Juhu Koliwada yields many surprises, including octopus, anemone, brittle star, molluscs, sponges and even the occasional starfish.
