Gwadar is the second major port city in Pakistan after Karachi. It is located on the southwest coast of Pakistan in the Baluchistan province. The coastal line of Gwadar sea port borders the Arabian Sea. Until over a decade ago, Gwadar was just a small settlement that mainly relied on artisanal fishing. Its potential to become a major deep water port was explored after its development under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor or CPEC. Gwadar serves as the linchpin in China’s Belt and Road Initiative, which connects the countries in the region for economic activities. As the port continues to develop under the CPEC initiative, the city is fast becoming hub for tourism.

The climate of Gwadar is hot during summers and mild during winters. However, usually the sea breeze from the Arabian Sea makes the weather pleasant in harsh summers as well. Mean temperature of Gwadar in its hottest month (June) is around 31°C while in winters mean temperatures remain around 18°C. Both winters and summers are suitable for visiting Gwadar as a tourism destination. Its striking beaches, sunset points, charming islands and golden deserts further add to its qualities of being an exciting place for travellers to visit.
