Get set for lighthouse tourist destinations in India, Mumbai to have the first!

Kanhoji Angre Lighthouse

The Ministry of Tourism and the Ministry of Shipping have jointly started to develop three lighthouses that they have identified into tourist destinations — Kanhoji Angre in Mumbai, the Dolphin’s Nose in Vishakhapatnam and Mahabalipuram lighthouse about 40 km south of Chennai. The first to be launched would be, of course, the one in Mumbai! The ministry runs 180 lighthouses along the coastline of India. They are important navigational tools for ships, but they can become important tourist destinations and of the three identified, India’s first will be developed just off the coast of Mumbai. It’s a unique lighthouse and you have to sail to the island that makes it attractive for tourists. It’s a historical island with a fort built around it by Kanhoji Angre. Mumbai is one of the best coastal cities and this is the most underutilised asset we have.
