If you are looking for a budget destination for scuba and snorkel, this is a must visit place. The water is clear early morning but due to increasing crowd by the noon, the water gets muddy after many dives. It's better if you complete the dive early. People here offer scuba for as low as Rs. 500/-. Pictures (usually free)... More

The beach is pretty clean and there are not too many visitors so it's quiet as well. The sand is pretty good, like the ones we see in South Goa beaches, not the dirty one which we generally see in other beaches. There are very few hawkers so that keeps the environment very silent.

Awesome beach - to visit in the coastal belt of Maharashtra. lots of water sports activities to experience which are best organised by local at a minimal cost. Feel fortunate to spot the Dolphins at your first visit in the undisturbed sea. You will find many home stays - make you feel homely away from home, best MTDC Resort on... More

Calm, serene, white unspoiled sands and a treat to the eyes. Dozens of hotels all over the beach and literally hundreds of eating shacks. MTDC has a snorkeling and scuba diving center. Safety remains a personal issue, which kindly note

Enjoyed the experience of walking over clean white beach. not too much of commercialization. Hence had peace of mind. I felt the place to be safe also. Did not see any unruly people. You can get a nice look at the fresh fish and probably bid to buy fresh fish through auction at 6 PM. thoroughly enjoyed.
