1. Kihim: Last-minute-decision beach
Last-minute-decision beach Come here to get away from the crowded beaches of Alibaug. Kihim is close to Mumbai, closer than Alibaug actually. The quickest way to get here would be to take a ferryboat from Colaba’s Gateway to Mandwa jetty, and then an Alibaug-bound bus, getting off at Chondi Naka along the way.
2. Korlai: A little seclusion and a great view
Korlai is about 20 kilometers south of Alibaug, and effortless to miss. A little after Revdanda town, as the main road approaches the coast, look for a hill jutting out into the sea on what looks like an island. Take a right turn here, and follow the village road round the hill to get to the beach.
3. Murud: For the island sea fort and food
Murud beach is about 165 kilometers from Mumbai and 50 kilometers south of Alibaug, from where you can without difficulty find a bus or rickshaw to take you here.
4. Diveagar: To feel alone in an empty world
Diveagar Come here when you want to sense alone. Head down the Mumbai-Goa highway (NH17) for about 130 kilometers and get a left turn at Mangaon.
5. Devbaug: The full sightseeing package
Devbaug beach is close to Tarkarli, near Malvan, about 500 kilometers from Mumbai, close to the border with Goa. The closest railway station is Kudal.
