If you love road trips, then the Pune-Tarkarli Road along the coast of Konkan is a great destination. On the way, you’ll find forts, temples, hillside resorts, dining rooms, and small restaurants serving delectable seafood.Trips to the beaches of Konkan
are an experience of tranquillity, pristine beauty, mesmerizing sunsets, and delicious seafood. It’s the best place to relax, the
perfect place to spend a weekend or a holiday.
And for this very purpose, we decided to go on a road trip to cover most of the scenic beaches on the Maharashtra coast, we had nine days on our hands, and we wanted to make the most of it. After doing some google research, we found that Maharashtra had to offer pristine beaches.

timings and walk our way to the KOLABA FORT inside the sea.The walls of the Kolaba fort are approximately 25 feet tall. This fort has two entries. On one side
is the Alibaug, and on the other side, it opens to the sea. There are two English cannons on the
north gate and the Siddivinayak temple constructed from Raghoji Angre, Dargah of Hadji
Kamaluddin. Despite being between the salty Arab sea, the fort has freshwater wells. The view
from the top of the fort is incredible, and you can set your cameras and click on them.
We went to Varsoli beach; it was pristine and serene beach also less crowded, so we enjoyed
the waves to the fullest here around 5 p.m. we moved to Kihim beach to do Bird watching and
see the beautiful sunset by the Arabian sea and Overnight Stay in the Hotel.

Diveagar Beach, Shivardhan Beach and Harihareshwar Beach After that Check inn to the Hotel at Dapoli.Kashid Beach At 9.00 AM, we started from our hotel and reached Kashid Beach, which was just a 1 hr drive from our hotel. Adorned with cliffs, rocks, and a golden shoreline, Kashid Beach is every beach baby’s,
photographer’s, and nature lover’s escape.
Murud Beach
At 11.00 AM, we began our trip to Murud, just 30 minutes drive from Kashid Beach. Murud beach is a vast black
sand beach extending for nearly 1.75 km along the coastline and crystal blue waters. This is one of the best known beaches of Maharashtra and one of the highlights of Alibaug. Murud Beach is a charming destination,
where hills surround stretches of sand on three sides.Since we had the entire afternoon with us, we planned to have lunch by the beachside shacks and then went ahead with water sports like a banana boat ride and paragliding (Chargeable Basis Activities). We also visited the most popular Siddhi Vinayak temple in Murud and then headed to Divegar Beach

After Breakfast Checkout from Hotel and Proceed to the Ganpatipule, One the way Visit to Karde
Beach, Guhagar Beach and Velneshwar Beaches.
Karde beach
Karde beach is so quiet that I felt like I was in paradise during my period. I walked on it for a long time,
so soft was the flat surface on the sand. This beach has a layer of white sand and underlying black
It was time to go to the beach of Ladghar after Karde. The place was majestic during the night. I had
the luck to see from here to sunset the breathtaking views. I explained it in a few words, so wonderful.
I’ve seen dolphins have fun in the sea. They looked playful and quiet and did not want to get
troublesome as if on vacation too. It was worth visiting Dapoli to see this view also visit to Kadyavarcha Ganpati Temple.
Guhagar Beach. Guhagar Beach is one of Konkan’s most famous beaches. Also, one of the nearest beaches to Chiplun.The great thing about Guhagar Beach is that you’re bound to have a good time, no matter what you do on the beach. After lunch at Guhaghar, we got back on our journey and made a final pit stop on the way, very close
to Ratnagiri, to a place called Prachin Konkan. The unique, interactive life-size museum on a large
campus depicts life in the Konkan. It traces the region’s history, highlighting the people’s lifestyle, the
economic, cultural, social, and religious background, the rich flora and fauna, and how the place has
developed over the years while maintaining its natural charm.
Velneshwar Beach
Then we went to Velneshwar Beach, 35 minutes away from Guhagar. Velneshwar beach lined with
coconut trees is famous for its rock-free sea and its clean atmosphere. Whether you want to stroll
around the beach, sunbathe or swim, you can do all that.
Our night stay was in Ganpatipule, which is almost a two-hour drive from Velneshwar Beach. We were trying to get there early, so we started at 6 p.m. We arrived at the Hotel, had dinner, and a good night’s
sleep in our bed

Early in the morning, we had Lord Ganesh’s good darshan at the Ganpatipule Temple on one
side of the beach.
This Temple is home to an ancient statue of Lord Ganesh, 400 years old. The idol of Lord
Ganapati or Ganesha is a swaymbhu, meaning self-born since any artist did not make it. Unlike
the other idols that face the East, he faces the West. Like other pilgrims, we took the parikrama
of the hill where this Temple was to seek the blessings of the Lord.
Aare-ware beach is just a short drive away, about 12 kilometers from the famous Ganapatipule
Temple. An archaeological wonder in itself, the two sides of the same mountain, the beach of
Aare and Ware, was formed ages ago by the convergence of the mountain to the ocean. This
kind of phenomenon is indeed a pinnacle of the beauty and tranquility of nature. One is
supposed to be mesmerized and instantly fall in love with the virgin and crescent twin beaches
of Aare and Ware.
The perfect way to enjoy this scene is to sit on the rocks in Aare Ware’s ghat while enjoying
fresh coconut water. In fact, this is where you can end up losing yourself in the beauty of nature
and enjoy the whole experience of Konkan. Overnight stay at hotel.
