Guhagar, Ratnagiri
Guhagar is a small town on the western ghats, It is highlighted on the getaway list for its amazing tranquil beach. Guhagar Beach is of of the finest beaches on the western ghats. the softness of the sand and low profile of the swash zone gives it a magical view. Clean beach and clear water is just what one wants to see. The sunset is so beautiful, one can see the sun disappearing slowly in the horizon, Best time to be there is when the high tide is during the evening, the waves hit the dock ramp, a scene that can't be put into words
