Top Places To Visit 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 beach is as serene as it can be and you can rarely spot few people around. However, there are very few eating options at the beach which is a good bet to keep the beach super clean. As it got dark, we headed back to our hotel for a much needed shower. One downside of visiting a beach would always be coming back sticky and sultry due to humid salty air around. But I guess every good thing has a dark side. We ended the day after gulping authentic konkani fish thali made by a local villager followed by watching the India-Bangladesh cricket match in our room, which was a thriller. Indeed, a day very well spent!
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.
