Harbor, one of the world’s greatest natural harbors, has a broad, sheltered bay located between the city of Bombay and the mainland. Bombay, or Mumbai as it is now called, is actually an island located on India’s central-west coast along the Arabian Sea, and a series of bridges connects it to the mainland. This sprawling city of nearly 18 million is the industrial hub of India, and responsible for half of India’s foreign trade. Many are surprised, however, to find the Victorian cityscape more reminiscent of a 19th-century English industrial city than what you’d expect to find on the edge of the Arabian Sea. Bombay has a bustling streetlife, more bazaars than you could ever explore, and India’s best nightlife. The main part of the city is concentrated at the southern claw-shaped end of the island, and has art galleries, museums, amusement parks and family entertainment centers. Most sporting facilities in Bombay are restricted to private clubs, but if you enjoy fishing, the Maharashtra State Angling Association offers trips to suburban lakes and picnic spots, and some private clubs do allow temporary membership for visitors. The Royal Bombay Yacht Club has sailing excursions every Saturday, and those who want to sign on as crewmembers need only know a rig from a prow.
