Well.. don’t worry, we have got you covered for the weekends. Here are the top 4 beaches of Pakistan that you must visit during your summer weekends to just sit back, relax and enjoy the soothing waves!
Nestled by the Makran Coastal region, the Ormara beach has been an enthralling beach, for its historical significance as well as a recreational harbor. Once a battle-field between local tribesmen and foreigners, the beach has now become an absolute delight for the people who want to enjoy their summer retreat to the fullest. From massive bonfires to playing volleyball set against the azure strip of the Makran coast, the Ormara beach is the most promising escape from your daily grind.
Set across the Lasbela district of Balochistan, the beach overlooks a picturesque landscape that is endlessly soothing. Known as the port of gold, Sonmiani is the perfect destination for enjoying a summer retreat. Just watch out for the white jellyfish in the fine beach sand, otherwise it doesn’t sting to be here!
If you wish to reimagine the folklore of the Arabian Nights, Astola beach is the destination for you. The golden sand dunes dotted by small buildings overlook the crystal blue water of the beach which makes it so picture-perfect. This hidden gem of Pakistan is Gram-worthy for sure!
Stretched across the South-West of Karachi, the beach got its name from the pits that the rare green turtles dig in the sand to lay their eggs. Except for the monsoon season, the beach provides the best escape from the bustling city life, as it has a host of amazing huts for the perfect weekend getaway!
With so many spots to visit this summer, grab your sunscreen and sunglasses, because the beach awaits!
