At just about a 100 kilometers from Mumbai, is Alibaug which many people consider as a perfect weekend getaway. It falls under the Raigad district of Maharashtra and is the closest place one can go to in just under a 2.5 hour drive. Most of its beaches are rocky and sandy with a dense cover of trees towards the shores.
Kihim, being slightly less crowded than the main Alibaug town, has a lot of hidden treasures. Walking along the roads and bylanes to the beach here is pleasant. One will find many migratory birds here and even various kinds of butterflies! There are a quite a few MTDC approved resorts and family stays.
If visiting during the monsoons, one of the best place to stay at is Sanidhya resort which provides amazing seafood as well as non-veg. Konkan cuisine.
