Devbagh Beach

Reviewed By KhatriRocks - Mumbai, India

Devbagh is a stop for the quintessential beach lover. Sun, sand, surf, sea and endless open space, Devbagh is the next best thing to having a beach all to yourself. Between building sandcastles, combing the shore for seashells, endless beach volleyball games, snorkelling and relaxing and letting the sea wash all you.

Sindhudurg Fort

Reviewed By ManishM1966 - Mumbai, India

It's in middle of sea, need to reach by boat. Recommended to go in morning / latest by 3:30pm as boat service may stop after this depending on water level.
Cap & sunglasses, recommended
honestly nothing great to see if you have been to such fort at Alibaug or other places.
Fort isn't maintained properly. Quite a bit of walking.

Nivati Beach

Reviewed By KaustavSBanerjee

My Nivati beach visit was one of the most spectacular sea shore exploration ever. We just heard about this beach and started our trip without having much information which eventually ended up to be the most memorable one.
About Nivati Beach: A picture perfect isolated virgin beach with hillocks in backdrop. Since very less people visit this place, it is the cleanest beach I have ever visited in west coast of India. The combination of white sand beach and waves through blue water has a mesmerizing effect altogether.
Things to do: Do we always need to go after Water Sports in every sea beach? No right? Nivati is just a place to relax and enjoy the sea. However there are few things one must try
1. Early in the morning there is a possibility to see dolphins. Though I have not tried in Nivati, but in other shores I have seen dolphins and it’s a stunning feeling.
2. Visit to the light house is must. I am not sure whether they still allow visitors at the top or not, but we got a chance to get down to the light house island. Its around 30 minutes boat ride from the shore. Don’t forget to ask the boat owner to take you around the island to see the whale nose point, where the water sprinkles out of a whole in rock due to tide and wave like it comes out of a Whale nose. The view from the light house and the island is breathtaking.
3. While coming back from the island, ask the boatman to take a pitstop to the back water. He will take you to a place where the water would look like a natural pool, no wave, no depth, white sand beach and backdrop of coconut trees. We spent around couple of hours in the water there and still weren’t ready to come out
4. There is a fort as well but I heard it’s not worth visiting, even we didn’t go.
5. And the most important thing, spend a night at least there and do camp fire on the beach. I can sit on the shore with a cup of tea for the entire morning, the view is that good
Where to Stay: There are very less options, only two of them. Out of those two, we stayed in Hardika Beach Resort. Don’t get overexcited by the word resort, its just a basic home stay with very basic facilities. But we didn’t need anything more than that. The owner arranged all the food and boat rides for us. This particular resort is actually on the shore, so we had the white sand at our doorstep.
Food: One has to consume whatever the resort owner would prepare. Needless to say there is no food street around. But the homemade food was awesome and he prepared whatever we asked him. If you love non veg and then I would suggest always try fish and crab while visiting sea Beaches instead of chicken and mutton. We actually got a full plate of fried crab at Rs 50 (way less than chicken and mutton). Do try Surmai and pomfret as well. You can pick which fish you want to eat in the morning while the fishermen come back from fishing.
How to reach: If you don’t want to stay in Nivati, then take a boat from Tarkarli and take a boat to Nivati. You can also reach by road. From Pune/Mumbai, try to google through NH 17. While in NH17, take a right turn from Kudal. The small road will take you to Nivati. There are small roads from malvan as well. You just need to ask and continue.
Special Tips: Though it spells like Nivati, but the way local people call it something like “Niuti”

Enjoyed every bit of it. I did scuba for first time in my life and was enthralled by the experience of rich underwater world. Scuba is bit tricky but worth every second of it. There is no risk as all time experienced diver is holding you. If you get the hang of
