Historic Side of the Beach
At Ras Muari i.e. Cape Monze Beach you can find a lighthouse that was basically built by the British regime 1914 for the purpose of navigation of the vessels. During the British government rule in India, this masterpiece was built. During World War I, the lighthouse actually sat off the Iranian island of Qais and at that time it was quite treasured in assisting and supporting the maritime traffic.
It is said that the light from the lighthouse was visible from a distance of 10 miles away. Contrasting to the Manora Point Lighthouse, this lighthouse at Cape Monze beach was not in reality visible from Karachi. It was not visible from any other spot of the popular beaches as well. Back then, for the construction of this beach and making it accessible for the general public, construction material was carried with the help of the camels.
