Malvan is also famous for Sindhudurg fort which is situated right in the Arabian sea. The fort is of great historical significance as it was built by the great Maratha emperor Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in the 17th century to counter the influence of foreign merchants in Konkan region. At present, you can still see some great architecture implemented by Maratha's in the 17th century
How to Reach Malvan :
Air : Sindhudurg airport is the nearest airport to Malvan, but currently it operates flights only to and from Mumbai. So, if you’re coming from any other part of country then take flight to Goa and take bus from there to Malvan
Train : Kudal station is the nearest railway station to Malvan. After reaching the station, you can take autos from outside the station but I wouldn’t recommend that as prices are inflated. Best to way to reach Malvan is by talking with your hotel, they have contacts with private cars and they’ll schedule one car to pick you up. If you’re on budget, you can walk to Kudal bus stand, which is just a kilometer away and take government buses from there to Malvan.
3D/2N is the best and relaxing way to do Malvan, but if you’re on a budget, you can do Malvan in 2D/1N.
