Awas beach is located near kihim village which is on the north side of alibag. The beach is less crowded, peaceful. Awas beach is a perfect weekend gateway for anyone who wants to take a break from their busy work schedule. One can travel with their partner ,family or solo as well.
HOW TO REACH
It is easy to reach awas beach as alibag is not only connected by roadway but also by water way!
if you're travelling from mumbai by road it takes almost 3 hrs to reach (i guess less if you got bike) its almost 100 kms from mumbai the most preferred route is mumbai- panvel- pen -alibag well I can't tell you the exact distance time or route from pune or other location as i was travelling from mumbai so i only know about it!
If you are an excursionist or a budget traveller you will love this, even i love this one! One can easily get a ferry or a boat from gate way of India. ferry is the fastest , hassles and the cheapest mode to reach alibag. It will drop you to mandwa port which is also a beautiful port! (You'll regret if you don't click pics there) the ferry is usually operated by 3 main operators i.e PNP , Ajanta, and maidhar, they offer connectivity by bus till alibag they charges are economical every ferry got different charges(for ac it is same rs.150) and vary by time (to travel):
Ajanta : main deck-85
Maidhar: main deck-110 upper deck : 135.
NOTE: if you love to enjoy every single part of your tour choose deck not AC we choose ac and they asked us to sit in a close cabin which was way damn irritating for us so although we paid the whole amount we stayed on deck.
You can easily get a ferry in every 45 mins. If you get a boat it will cost you a little too much so the suggestion i can give is to travel by ferry to save time and money.
The best accommodation can be a home stay they are negotiable and offer you food as well plus you will get a chance to interact with locals! If you want to taste the real kokan food, the best way is to do home stay. we pain 700 per person for a day which include stay , breakfast tea in the morning and evening and dinner(non veg)
