 Mumbai is on a narrow peninsula on the southwest of Salsette Island, which lies between the Arabian Sea to the west, Thane Creek to the east, and Vasai Creek to the north. Mumbai's suburban district occupies most of the island. Navi Mumbai is east of Thane Creek, and the Thane District is north of Vasai Creek.
Mumbai consists of two revenue districts

The city of Mumbai consists of two distinct regions: Mumbai City district and Mumbai Suburban district, which form two separate revenue districts of Maharashtra.[1] The city district region is also commonly referred to as the Island City or South Mumbai.[2] Mumbai Suburban district lies to the north of Mumbai City district and comprises all of Mumbai's suburbs. The western part of the Mumbai Suburban district forms the Western Suburbs and the eastern portion forms the Eastern Suburbs. The suburbs of Chembur, Govandi, Mankhurd and Trombay lie to the south-east of the Eastern Suburbs. These suburbs are generally not considered as part of the Eastern Suburbs and are sometimes referred to as the "Harbour Suburbs".

The total area of Mumbai is 603.4 km2 (233 sq mi).[3] Of this, the island city spans 67.79 km2 (26 sq mi), while the suburban district spans 370 km2 (143 sq mi), together accounting for 437.71 km2 (169 sq mi) under the administration of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). The remaining area belongs to Defence, Mumbai Port Trust, Atomic Energy Commission and Borivali National Park, which are out of the jurisdiction of the BMC.[4] Mumbai lies at the mouth of the Ulhas River on the western coast of India, in the coastal region known as the Konkan. It sits on Salsette Island, partially shared with the Thane district.[5] Mumbai is bounded by the Arabian Sea to the west.[6] Borivali National Park is located partly in the Mumbai suburban district, and partly in the Thane district, and it extends over an area of 103.09 km2 (39.80 sq mi).[7]
