Thane Creek Flamingo Sanctuary



Accessible from Airoli, the Thane Creek Flamingo Sanctuary is a little-known spot flocked by migratory flamingos every year. The majority of these are Lesser Flamingos who come from Kutch, while the Greater Flamingos are said to come from as far as Iran. The creek itself is classified as an IBA (Important Bird Area) as more than 160 species of birds can be found here.

You can take a boat tour to see the flamingos out on the water and if you’re lucky, you might even spot a dolphin! While the best time to see flamingos is from December to May, there’s plenty to delight throughout the year. If you are travelling with young children, do visit the state-of-the-art museum that provides interactive information on marine wildlife. Be sure not to miss the walking trails that go through the wetlands as you can see a wider variety of birds and experience the biodiverse flora and fauna up close.
