One of the best fishing points in Karachi, Garho is a small fisherman’s village located near the coastal highway. After crossing the small town of gharo its just a 5 min drive and you’ll find a turn to your right that will take you on the Keti Bandar road.

Almania is one of the best fishing spots in Karachi and the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen.
It is also located on the coastal highway after the bridge of harjeena. Almania has reported a large number of Dentex (Dathi in local Language) being caught, and of the right size, the most significant size caught last year was 10 kg. Other Species you can find here are black bream, yellow bream, Golden Snapper, Catfish, and Red Snapper, so I counted it as one of the best fishing points in Karachi.
Almania is even best for a night stay, and many anglers plan for a night stay, so they fish at the first light that is the perfect feeding time for the fish. Another best thing about almania is that if you can’t find fish from the shore, you can even rent a boat At a cheap rate.
Simply Almania is one of the best fishing spots in Karachi, and it has made a spot in my list of top 5 fishing spots near Karachi. Check the location here.
3. Sunehra Canal
Sunehra Canal is located Just before Mubarak village and it the mouth of the open sea and is one of the best fishing points in Karachi. Once you are on your way to Mubarak village there will be a turn near the power plant at 1st you will see car parking lots of boats but no place to fish. But wait a minute when seeing at right you will see a hill. It’s just a few minutes of walk from the car parking to the hill, and that’s the spot where you want to fish.
The water has sandbed so there will be no issue of tangling. You can catch a wide range of fishes from here including big dentex, flathead, flounder, Small Emperor fish, yellowfin trevally and many more, but you’ll catch a lot of flatheads and flounders as the water is on the sand bed.
I have included it in my list of best fishing points in Karachi as you can also book yourself a boat from there and enjoy the open sea.
There is no doubt that it is one of the best fishing spots in Karachi and made it spot on my list of top 5 fishing spots near Karachi.
2. Mubarak Village
Mubarak Village is located just a few miles from Sunehra and is one of the most favorite places of people for fishing in Karachi, and it is undoubtedly one of the best fishing spots in Karachi. The best thing about Mubarak village is that you can catch some good fish both from the shore and offshore. But you should have your fishing license when you go to Mubarak Village.
Mubarak Village is famous for its big game fishing where you can rent a boat and go offshore for trolling, flatline fishing, or night fishing, the main targeted species are King Mackrel that can range from 5 kg to 50 kg, Queen Fish, Baracuda, Dorado, and Cobia or you can stand on the rocks and cast in the tides for yellowfin trevally.
There can be no question that why I included Mubarak Village in my list of top 5 fishing spots near Karachi.
1. Buharo/Parla Goath
Now that I’ve shared the best four on my list of the top 5 fishing spots near Karachi it is time for the best and my favorite one for fishing in Karachi.
Parla Goath is located on the same road as gharo the Keti Bandar road, and it comes before gharo. On the Keti Bandar road, buharo is the next village after Mirpur Sakro. From buharo, there is a turn after the small bridge, by the freshwater canal and from there it is a ride of approximately 40-50 minute offroad. You will reach parla goath the calmest, beautiful, and the best fishing spot in Karachi I’ve ever fished.
You can enjoy fishing from the jetty as well, but I will recommend taking a boat and go into the depths of mangroves and enjoy the full of fishing. The reason I count it as one of the best fishing spots in Karachi is that you can catch a variety of fish species there including Golden Snapper, Grouper, Barracuda, Dentex, Barramundi, Red Snapper, Breams, and many more I can’t even count.
