Vijayadurg Tourism & Travel Guide

Vijayadurg or Vijaydurg is a small sea-port town located on the west coast of India, in the state of Maharashtra. The town is quite picturesque, with the majestic Arabian Sea on one side and the beautiful Sahayadri Ranges on the other. The town's idyllic location makes it a favourable tourist destination. On the coastline facing the Arabian Sea, there stands a historic fort, from which the town derives its name. Once used as a naval port for the vibrant Maratha Empire, the Vijaydurg Fort is currently a major tourist attraction along with functioning as a sea-port. Vijaydurg has several virgin beaches, untouched by crowd or civilisation, making it an ideal getaway destination to unwind. A pristine wild lingers in the vicinity of the town, with a rich fauna including the rare barking deer, red fox, sea otter, dolphins and even a few whales as well as endangered species such as the great Indian hornbill, vulture, langur etc. An interesting marine biodiversity is the highlight of this little town, which includes a variety of fish such as the king mackerel, ladyfish, great white shark, eel, swordfish, sailfish and shellfish. Birds like the storks, red-whisked bulbuls, kingfishers etc grace the skyline. Swatches of mango cultivation surround the town and a visit to this town will remain incomplete without a taste of the local flavours, especially the Malvani curry. The coastline draped in a rich green cover of coconut and palm trees, adding a peaceful aura, is the perfect location for an offbeat traveler.

India’s second largest city, Mumbai, previously known as Bombay, is home to a few hundred captivating contrasts and creeds. Mumbai is bursting with frenetic bazaars, shaded avenues thronged by commuters and roads brimming with traffic. The dynamic Maharashtrian metropolis is also a powerhouse of India’s business and trade sectors. But regardless, Bombay’s ethos lies in its biggest railway station - Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, in people-watching and eating bhelpuri by the iconic arch of the Gateway of India and in the exquisite Taj Mahal Palace, that holds a decade worth of stories about both Bombay and Mumbai. A few other places to visit in Mumbai city are Nariman Point - a legion of office blocks in the heart of the city and the Prince of Wales Museum for its eclectic architecture. Watching the sunset with a plate of vada pav at Marine Drive and experiencing the vibrant festival of Ganesh Chaturthi at Juhu Beach are few of the best things to do in Mumbai. One must also travel to Mumbai city to be dazzled by the country’s biggest, and most prolific film and media industry, wherein if you’re lucky, you might stumble upon a Bollywood star or two.
