Gadani Beach is the location of a thriving ship breaking industry. Ships to be broken are often run aground on the beach under their own power, and gradually cut up. As the weight of the ship lessens, it is dragged further onto the beach until completely scrapped. In common with many other breakers in the region, scrapping ships at Gadani Beach uses large amounts of local cheap labour with minimal mechanical assistance. (from Wikipedia)
