Sometimes trips are planned and other times it just happen.This tip was the second type.

Initial plan was Daman and Diu but had to be dropped as time was a constraint. Out of the blue we decided to explore the beaches near to Pune.

Booked a self-drive car,packed our bags and here we were hitting the road at 4am in morning.We started our journey to Diveagar beach and the drive was just beautiful.No traffic, no lights,just us and the night sky.The stars were clear and "yellow" playing in the car made it even more special.

After about 5-6 hours of drive and a long break in between we reached diveagar beach. The beach was hidden behind long stretches of palm trees and dense shrubs. With lot of resorts and homestays around, staying and changing rooms are not a problem. We quickly got into our gears and hit the beach.

This beach is a mix of peace and activities. With all the water sports around one can negotiate and get the adrenaline pumping with water scooter,bumper ride and sofa ride etc. Paragliding is not worth the money and time as it done on ground with you being pulled by a Jeep and not on water.

After spending time here, we wanted to explore some more and took off to the road along the sea line. This was the best decision we took that day.

We drove along the sea and saw the best view of our lives. The sea hitting the road all along the way. We were just a few meters above the sea level and the only barrier between us and the sea were the rocks and the railing. It was surreal. Awestruck with the view,we decided to drive further.We reached a a beach called aaravi beach. (One of the best that I have seen). It was just secluded, noone along the beach just some kids from the nearby village playing cricket. There was peace all around and just the sound of the sea and the wind was calling us.

 We decided to spend more time here on our way back and drove further to srivardhan beach. Personally, I din't like this beach much, as it was over crowded.Clicking some pics, we decided to drive back to the beach that left us awestruck, aaravi beach.

We decided to stay there for sunset and just get lost in the serenity of the surroundings. We strolled along the beach-line barefooted watching the kids play cricket.Places like these makes you realize how small things in life gives us immense pleasure than money could ever give. We want that big TV and then the biggest TV but then the smile on our face,feeling the real thing,makes everything small in front of it. Lost in the thought,we sat on the rocks clicking pics,eating corn and watching the sunset,with the sound of water hitting the rocks in the background, it was one of the most beautiful background scores for that setup.

Water level started rising after the sunset and we decided to make our way back to pune and patted our backs thanking ourselves to come here and see the beauty that the western ghats has to offer.

To top it all we stopped our car in the ghat section at a safe section, to watch night sky in all it glory. There was the sky visible between the mountains and below the ghat at a distance was the city,glowing in all its glory.

NOTE:

Do not enter the water at aaravi beach,it just too deep and the waves are not predicable

Be a responsible traveller, DO NOT litter

Have coconut water, its amazing:-)
