Places to Visit

In Maharashtra, there is a wealth of tourist attractions waiting to be explored. Maharashtra has it all, its beautiful beaches, temples, historic places, a plethora of wild lives and above all its simple people, making Konkan a unique tourist destination.

KASHID

Kashid is popular mainly for its white sand, blue seas, green mountains, paddy fields, and rivulets. It is a tiny, picturesque village a few kilometers from Alibaug that gives the essence of rural Mahrashtra. The stunningly pristine Kashid beach provides a relatively peaceful alternative to the now commercialized beaches of Alibaug and Murud and is an ideal getaway for tourists. It is one of the finest beach stretch on the Konkan coast with golden yellow sands and crystal clear water and the Sahayadari hills as a backdrop. The 3 km-long Kashid Beach combines all the elements of a perfect beach holiday.

MURUD BEACH

Murud Beach is the old fishing village of Murud, a few kilometers away from Kashid, is another option for beach lovers. While Kashid Beach has crystal clear blue waters, Murud Beach has clear green water. The beach is also surrounded on three sides by mountains.

MURUD - JANJIRA FORT

Right in the middle of the sea is a sight-seeing highlight in the form of Murud-Janjira Fort. Occupied in the past by the Siddis, the fort is situated deep in the sea and is one of the strongest marine forts in India. That explains why the fort has never been conquered by any of its enemies. The sea waves crash into the fort from all sides, however, the fort still stands intact facing the high tide. Ferry boats are available to visit the fort.

BIRLA TEMPLE

The beautiful temple of Shree Vikram Vinayak also known as 'Birla temple' is located at Salav, 20 kms. from Kashid. The temple is built on a small hillock with pure white marble The temple surroundings is surrounded by lush greenery and the temple has Idols of Ganpati, Radha - Krishna, Shankar - Parvati, Bhavani Mata and Surya.
