Also known as Willington Marina Beach, Porbandar Beach is a favourite hangout amongst the locals.

The tranquil waters of the Arabian Sea and mesmerizing sunsets attract a lot of visitors during the dusks. Along with that, one can also visit the ancient port of Porbandar where you can see a number of ships and boats winding and unwinding.

Reconstructed in 2003, the beach has a well laid walking track and good seating arrangements for visitors. There is also a skating rink for children and many food joints in the vicinity which serve some lip-smacking Gujarati snacks and delicacies.
