“Pristine beaches, 300km from Mumbai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

Walk a few meters away from the temple along the beach and you would be rewarded by the most pristine beaches ever. Its also unlikely that you would find a soul to disturb you all day long. Beware of sand miners though.

“Clean white sand beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Ganapatipule is about 350kms from Pune. The beach is a part of the Konkan coastline. Its a very neat and clean beach which is not that commercialized yet. I particularly like the white sand look of the beach. Though it is not considered to be a very safe beach, there are patches where it is neither rocky nor deep, hence fit for a dip.

There are few vendors available at one end of the beach towards the temple.For food, one can visit the MTDC restaurant which is bang on the beach.
In our recent visit we saw few tourists para sailing too, though it was on the beach using a jeep :)

There is a beautiful Ganapati temple, which is believed to be one of the Ashtavinakyaks. A very neat and well managed temple.

This is the most cleanest beach I have seen, the evening walk is a good idea and very close by to the Famous Ganpati Temple.
