Blessed with a rich cultural past and a beautiful coastline, is the city of Srivardhana in Maharashtra. The widespread betel nut plantations punctuated by the red-tiled roofs of the Konkani houses come together as a rustic visual treat and a very cozy getaway. The temple complex of Shree Laxminarayan is what binds the history of the Peshwas with this town. But what adds glamour to this city is the golden sands of the many beaches that stretch across the shore. There is the Diveagar Beach, which is highlighted by the humble temple, standing on the coast, dedicated to Lord Ganesha. The Kondivali Beach is famous for water sports such as paragliding and surfing, and also the quick treks across the cliffs on the coast. The Harihareshwar Beach is ideal if you like relaxing by the beach with some lip-smacking seafood. There are many luxurious resorts that are surrounded by the turquoise blue sea such as the Shree Ganesh Beach Resort or Subhan Beach Resort. To wake up to the sparkling waters in the morning sun, almost touching the gates of the resort, is no less than a magical experience to start the day with.
