So as promised we will begin our Mumbai getaways with Alibag, also called Alibaug is a coastal town, just south of Mumbai. It's beaches are very popular and it is just about 100 km from Mumbai.
The fastest and the cheapest way to reach Alibag from Mumbai is by ferry which is available from Gate Way of India. Air conditioned ferries are also available which is a boon especially during summers.
The name Alibag means Gardens of Ali which is because earlier a rich man called Ali lived here and owned many plantations of mangoes and coconuts in his gardens. Hence the locals call the place Alibag.
