Recomended but take your own safety precautions
Mar 2021
We have visited the Tsunami Island during COVID Pandemic (March 2021).
The overall occupancy in Devbag was only 20%.
Only activities allowed are Banana Ride/ Speed Boat & Parasailing.
The locals have cartel and the rates are fixed at INR 300 per ride.

Th overall experience was good, however we found that most of the locals did not follow COVID restrictions.

A must-visit place in Malvan, with watersports and fun
Dec 2019
This is a must-visit place in Malvan. The water around is very deep around and experience is amazing unlike to that of any other typical beach.

This place has apparently been formed after Tsunami that struck in 2004. While there has been lots of destruction everywhere in the world due to Tsunami, this place has been unique in a way that its formed only due to Tsunami and now its bustling with tourists and people earning their living.

The place is accessible only through boat. While there are many points from where the boat-service can be availed, I think the cheapest one would be from Devbagh Sangam beach, costing around 500 per boat. We happened to take the boat from a slightly far-off point and that costed us Rs. 1200 but then that gave us a longer boat ride. The boatman showed us a few points like a temple, MTDC boathouses, Sangam beach and ride also includes a stop at Tsunami island for 1 hour. The fare obviously works out better for larger group. People are free to form their own groups and share the cost, but the authorities do not help in forming groups stating that not all groups might want to have the 1 hour wait at Tsunami island and that can cause disagreements among the groups, but then they allow.

The island is a pretty small one but has facilities of watersports like jet-ski, banana boat ride, kayaking and also parasailing etc. Also it has many small food stalls selling fruits and tasty Maharastrian dishes like Misal, Modak etc. Please note that Cash is the only mode of payments; and that's in most of the places in Malvan.

Experience with water at the island is nice as the water remains pretty shallow. So its a different experience and I would indeed recommend this place.

Very nice place to enjoy some water sports and chill with family n friends !!!
Dec 2019
Tsunami island is very near the Devbag beach and has to be accessed by Boat. This very tiny island was created during the tsunami where the sand from nearby places was shifted here. There are 4-5 shacks offering delicious local snacks and tea coffee. Loved the fresh ukadi modaks. There are couple of agencies offering water sports like banana boat ride, jet ski, para sailing and kayaking. Its good family fun. We were very lucky to be at this island at the time of solar eclipse and enjoyed watching the same standing in knee deep waters around the island.

Worth visiting for 2- 3 hours of family fun.
