Citizens can now take in breathtaking views of the Arabian Sea along with a taste of our rich archaeological history from the Kanhoji Angre Lighthouse, which was opened to public on 5th April,2013. Located 11 nautical miles (20 km) into the sea from the Gateway of India, the lighthouse is situated on Kennery Island, which also houses a fort built by the Portuguese. The Kanhoji Angre Lighthouse is named after a legendary Maratha admiral. Kennery Island can be reached on a boat in one-and-a-half hours from Colaba
