This makes an amazing last-minute-decision holiday! Kihim is on the Alibaug stretch of beaches and closer to Mumbai than Alibaug itself! Just get on to a ferry from Gateway of India to Mandwa, take an Alibaug bound bus and on your way, hidden a short walk away, is this beauty. A stretch of sand and splashing waves all to yourself (well, save a few locals you won’t mind) and almost all the quaint guesthouses here are about a minute’s walk from the beach! Need more? The food is local, fresh, warm and coastal - just what you need in a place like Kihim. If you’re looking for some bottled spirits, remember that Alibaug is just next door!
