Sewri Jetty is an industrial hub located along the eastern waterfront in Mumbai. The area is characterized by its rather unattractive dock, lined with huge container ships, and smoke-belching industrial units. Numerous ships also come there repairs and renovations, such as steel renewal, and will set sail once restored.
The real highlight there is the flamingos, which migrate from the Little Rann of Kutch, in Gujarat during the winter. Witness this unexpected phenomena against a unique backdrop of ships and cargo carriers in various states of repair. The flamingos start arriving in late November and stay until late March. The best time to see them is two hours before high tide. If you don't mind an early start, try and get there before sunrise.
Where: Sewri is one of the stations on the Mumbai Harbour train line. To get to Sewri Jetty and the mudflats, follow the road directly opposite the railway station (on the eastern side) to a T-intersection, then turn right. It's around 15-20 minutes walk.
