Uttan is a coastal town just north of Mumbai in Thane district of Maharashtra. A coastal town, it comes under the jurisdiction of the Mira-Bhayandar civic council. Part Jurisdiction is also handed over to the Mumbai Meteropolitan Region Development Authority MMRDA. However the locals have been opposing it, since the Tourism Plan proposed by the MMRDA will hamper the peace and tranquility of the locals. The area is famed for its beach, and fresh fish stock, visited by city-goers over the weekend. It is also famous for its lighthouse. The area has a significant East Indian Catholic and Muslims population.[citation needed]

Uttan is a coastal village known for its sea food, quiet locales and sparsely populated areas. This village has much fresh fish like prawns, bombil, bangara, pomfret and chala fish that the locals at Uttan village eat. The fish normally is eaten with a flat bread called bhakari or rice crêpe called ghavan.[citation needed]

Uttan is located 8 km away from Bhayandar and is full of people of the Koli and Muslim community. Some of the recreational places closest to Uttan are:[1]
