India is a country surrounded by water from 3 sides. Some of the world’s longest coastline is in its map; it hosts some of the most exotic and scenic beaches in the world. They offer everything- sunbathing, adventures, solitude, peace, tranquility, sightseeing beauty, crystal clear water, white sands. They lay an excellent ground for fun, enjoyment and partying.
Beaches are the most beautiful things made by God. They render an excellent combination of three most lovable things in this world- that is sunshine, sand and sea! They are the perfect place for relaxing and enjoying every moment spent there. The moment you keep your feet on the golden sands spread on the shore, an undefined feeling of comfort, strikes. And that undefined feeling of comfort lets you forget all your worries and tensions of day to day life.
Plus the foods offered in the coastal areas of India are considered to be the best in the world. If you ever have a chance of hitting the sea shores of Mumbai don’t miss the foods available on the food stalls over there! They are really amazing in taste and flavor. A decade back I was staying in Mumbai and after my college lecture, I used to hang around the beaches of Mumbai with my friends. We used to stump our feet in sands for hours and hours! I still remember those days!
