Well for those who love nature, you have a number of beaches whose shores have innumerable stories to narrate to every visitor. Bound by a charisma, the beaches make their appearance in hues of blue, white, green and various other shades.
The extravagant shores here are filled with tall trees which remain evergreen along with the perfect combination of blue waters and white sandy shores. This creates a total romantic atmosphere and calls each one of us to explore the vast shores, which open up like a blank book that needs to be filled with memories.

One of the longest beaches in the entire Konkan coast, the coast is divided into multiple beaches on a single coastline which starts from Dapoli and stretches itself through Karde and Ladghar, all the way up to Kelshi. Most of the beaches are interconnected with each other but one can also come across creeks in between them.
For the adventurous lot out there, you can take a bike ride over the rocky stretches to reach the beach. The most popular one here is the stretch from Murud Harnai to Ladghar, which is a flat beach filled with fine white sand underneath fine black sand.
