We visited Pears Beach Resort in Ladgarh during Christmas and it was wonderful to be there. It’s at a distance of about 230 Km from Pune but a drive of roughly 5 ½ hrs as the road condition is not that great. As we were approaching the resort and were at a distance of 500 meters, we suddenly saw the vast sea down below and were all ecstatic. The feeling was so refreshing that the travelling fatigue vanished instantaneously.
The resort is just 50 meters away from the beach and it was amazing to be able to view the sea right from the verandah of the cottage we took. Rooms are of decent size and relatively clean but carrying your own bed sheets is not a bad idea. Food options are limited for vegetarians but those who love fish and chicken, there are lots to choose from. The quality of food is good too. The service team is courteous and prompt in their response. Overall it’s a nice place to spend few days and certainly value for money.
The clean and serene beach of Ladghar stretches across a long area and not at all crowded. We went to the beach in the afternoon the day we reached there and it seemed like as if we own that place as there were no other people around. We were amazed to find such an undisturbed beach and really had a ball there. Dolphin watching is one of the attractions there and we sailed across to a distance in the next morning by a small boat. Though I didn’t have much hope of sighting dolphins but still wanted take that trip as sailing in this majestic sea by itself was to be such a striking experience. However the icing of the cake was to find so many dolphins playing around in the water. Our boat was circling across an area and the dolphins were riding waves all around us in rhythm. In the evening, it holds activities such as Para Gliding, Scooter & Bullock-cart riding on the beach and we enjoyed doing that as well. Sunrise & Sunset on the beach is always spectacular and it was not different there.
On the whole it was a wonderful experience at Ladghar – fantastic place to recharge your battery. We thoroughly enjoyed this trip and want to be back there soon.
