This island is in Gujarat, not in the country or abroad. Open to the traveler

Pirotan Island, 16 nautical miles from Jamnagar, is surrounded by a marine forest of mangroves in addition to wonderful marine life.  There is a lighthouse on the island.  


 Pirotan is one of the two most popular and permitted tourist destinations out of the seven islands in the coastal area of ​​the National Park.  Prior permission of Gujarat Government Forest Department, Customs Department and Ports Department is required for permission.  

A flag-saddle was placed here for the guidance of ships in the 18th century.  Instead of a flagpole on the 19th, a 21 meter high lighthouse was constructed.  That lighthouse was replaced by another 6 meter high lighthouse (5 meters high) during the period of 18th to 19th.  On the 19th, the area around the lighthouse was declared a marine national park with a coral shelf spread over 5 sq. Km. 


A total of 195 visitors visited Piroton Island, 16 nautical miles from Jamnagar, in the two days after the ban was lifted four years later.  A group of 100 people arrived on the island on the first day on Sunday.  A further 95 tourists visited on Monday.  The entry to Piroton Island will be open for six days each month, as the tides of the sixth, seventh and eighth of the month of Sud and Vad are favorable. 

The burial of a person was banned on Pirotan Island in Jamnagar four years ago without the knowledge of the system.  Last month, the Home Minister and the Forest and Environment Minister were asked to allow tourists to visit Piroton Island for nature education camps, including the Nawanagar Nature Club.  From Gandhinagar, the forest department office has issued a circular to allow tourists to go to Piroton Island.  A total of 195 tourists visited the island in two days. 


 According to the Marine National Park Authority, the matter is in the process of being approved so that people can book online like Sasan in the coming days.  People can contact the Marine National Park's MNP.com website.
