Our trip started from Gateway of India.We took ferry to Mandwa jetty.
The prices for Mandwa jetty ferry are:135INR for normal deck seating and 165INR for upper deck seating.
The ferry almost takes 40-45 minutes to reach Mandwa jetty.From which there are buses provided by the ferry dealers from jetty to Alibag bus stand.
There are plenty of stay option near Alibag bus stand.But We had to reach Kashid,So we took the local auto(locally called as tum tums).They say the prices for autos are fixed and they charged us approx 800INR from Alibag bus stand to Kashid beach.Travel time from Mandwa jetty to Alibag bus stand is another 45-50 mins.And from alibag to kashid is 1-1.5 hrs.Travelling without one's private vehicle is too tedious in Alibag.So it is advised to travel with your vehicle or book a car via Zoomcar.
The auto driver took us to a hotel named Apli Khanaval where a room for 2 costed 1200INR.They also had a dining kindof restaurant.Note:We didn't prebooked our hotel.So had to bargain for the final price
Kashid beach from our hotel was just a 5 mins away.
Kashid beach unlike other beaches has golden sand and is quite cleaner as compared to any beaches in Mumbai😝.Also the crowd is less as compared to mumbai.So one can enjoy to the fullest.There are also many water sports activities available at the beach.Such as para sailing for 1500ppINR,Banana boat sailing for 200pp INR,Jet skiing etc.
We spent the sunset at the beach clicking photos enjoying the view and the sea.After sunset it gets dark and it is highly not advisable to be at beach for own safety reasons as there are no safety guards during night for watch.There are plenty of food stalls at the beach which sells chips packets,biscuits,tea,coffee,maggi,poha etc
After returning from the beach we had dinner and went to bed by 11.00pm.
