Top Places To Visit in Shrivardhan 6 Spots
Next we went to a road side food stall near local hospital to stuff ourselves. They served delicious puri bhaji, misal pav and tea. While walking back to hotel, we spotted a secondary school and I had to capture it because of the fact that we are so used to seeing modern schools in cities. The care taker welcomed us inside when he saw us clicking outside the gate. These few things make you fall in love and connect with villages in India.
The ride from Diveagar to Shrivardhan was spectacular. This is the Maharashtra tourism ads kinda picturesque location. The distance between these 2 places is a about 20kms but you can't help but stop at every 3kms to just admire the kickass view of the coast line from small cliffs and the coastal roads. We took about an hour to reach shrivardhan. There's also Aravi beach just before shrivardhan which is almost like a virgin beach. White sand beach, untouched by civilization. You could spend half a day just lazing on the beach.Shrivardhan has a lot of good options to eat and stay. There is a small home kitchen called Atharva in the main market which serves nice home cooked food. You must try the sea food here. Inexpensive and really delicious fish thali, surmai fry and other local stuff.There's a place right on the beach at one end where there are cottages and tree houses to stay. About 1500 bucks per night for a room which is negotiable. Checkout the other places as well. Tents and all can be arranged. We chose to stay with one of the locals. These guys have small rooms adjoining their houses which they give on rent and also arrange for food. Good, basic place to stay would be around Rs. 500-700 and a filling fish/chicken thali would just be about Rs. 120-130.So we spent the night with some barbeque and all with a late night visit to the beach. I must say, Shrivardhan surprised us. The beach is absolutely clean and beautiful with raised promenades with antique street lamps and ample dustbins to keep the place clean. I wish we could achieve 1/3rd of this for the beaches in Mumbai.
