As you know that Mumbai means beaches and beaches means a lot of crowd where you feel like you are somewhere in the middle of a trade fare , where you would find , sellers and buyers , bikes and cars and a lot more things . But for me Beaches are the places where you could connect with the nature through the ocean and talk to the ocean through the waves , so the beach must be quiet and relaxing .
now finding a quiet beach in Mumbai was like finding a needle in the grass but but but , yes but i was wrong . a friend of mine told me of a place in Borivali west which is Gorai Beach ,a beach obviously but its a quiet one . so i thought of giving it a try . So , i made a Vlog showing you guys the place and how to reach there .
whenever you are planning to go to a new place , there are 3 important questions that comes to your mind , and that is :-
1 ) How to reach ?
2 ) where to stay ?
3 ) what to do after reaching there ?
so here i am , to answer all your 3 questions .
1 ) On this trip i took a taxi from chembur to borivali , but do not try this coz its gonna cost you a hell lot of money and time . The best way is to travel with Mumbai local from anywhere to borivali station and take exit towards borivali west , from there hire a Auto rickshaw and tell him to drop you at Borivali creek or borivali ferry , he will charge around 50 rupees , that's it . After getting at borivali creek you have to get on a boat / ferry and reach at Gorai creek which will cost you only 10 rupees . while you are on the boat enjoy the beauty around you , click pictures and record videos . after getting down at gorai creek you have to hire another auto rickshaw and tell him to drop you at Gorai Beach .This gonna cost you another 70 rupees , enjoy the view while you are in the auto .
Enjoy the view of water kingdom and vipasna ashram around you .
2 ) After reaching at Gorai Beach you would find many resorts and inns which could give you the rooms at affordable rates , if you are coming with someone special . or you could hire a hall for a party with friends .
The resorts staff will provide you all the things that you need so that you can relax and be close to the nature .
The best thing about the resorts is that they are built at the coastal line of Gorai Beach . That means just outside your rooms you will have a private beach and the beautiful ocean to look at .
3 ) Now this is a trick question , what to do ? haha it depends on you guys , you wanna party , this is the place . you wanna relax and meditate , this is the place , you wanna have some moments , this is the place or you wanna just be close to the nature , this is the place guys .
This is the only beach in Mumbai where you would find bikes and cars racing on the beach and its beauty will remind you of Goa . This beach can also be said as a mini goa
I would suggest all of you reading this to visit Gorai beach atleast once and feel the vibes it carries .
