Keamari Town

Keamari Town (also spelt Keamari and Kemari) is the main coastal town of Karachi, located in the central and western parts of the city, including the Port of Karachi and an extensive coastline with sandy beaches, small islands and mangrove forests.

It does not include the southern island of Manora which is under cantonment administration because of the naval base located there. The town forms a large triangle with highly defined boundaries - the RCD Highway and the Lyari River forming the northeastern border, the Hub River forming the northwestern border and the Arabian Sea forming the southern border.

The population of Kiamari Town was estimated to be about 380,000 at the 1998 census.
