Karachi is in the south of Pakistan, on the coast of the Arabian sea. The land in the area is mainly flat but there are some hills on the western and northern parts of the city. Two rivers flows through Karachi the River Malir and the River Liyari.Karachi harbour is in a sheltered bay in the south west of the city. It is protected from storms by Sandspit Beach,Manora Island, and Oyster Rocks. There are dense mangrove forests and creeks in the south - east in the Indus River
The coast of Karachi:
The Karachi coast has low rocky cliffs and sandy beaches. Sea caves and arches are formed by the erosion of the sea. When waves crash against the land, they erode the rocks. Over a long period of time, this forms a steep landform called a cliff. If there is a weak part of the bottom of a cliff, the waves erode this area more quickly, forming a hole or cave.

A headland is land that juts out in the sea. Sometimes, caves forms on both sides of the headland. Each cave is eaten away by the waves and a hole forms all the way through the headland. This is called an arch. Over time, the thin strip of land above the arch is worn away by rain and wind. It falls into the sea. The bit of land left in the sea is called a stack. There is a stack at Paradise Point in Karachi.

Big City Problems :
Karachi is one of the world's largest cities. It has a population of approximately 15 million people.
Like other big cities in the world, many of Karachi's problems are due to overcrowding. Such large numbers of people cause problems such as traffic jams, not enough houses, and not enough electricity and water for everyone's needs. There's also the problem of trying to dispose of all the waste produced by so many people. As a result pollution is a big problem in Karachi. The air, land,and rivers are polluted by the waste from all the factories and the people.
Thousands of people from other parts of Pakistan come to Karachi looking for work. Unfortunately there are not enough jobs for everyone so some people have no choice but to live in areas where living conditions are very poor.
In Karachi, as in other parts of the world, pollution can harm the coast too. Oil from ships, waste from factories, and sewage from homes can flow into rivers and oceans. This pollution can kill animals and plants. It can also cause diseases. Humans, too, can become ill or die from this pollution. The coastline of Karachi is becoming more polluted.
