Gorai is about 40 km from Thane. Gorai is also accessible by ferry from Mumbai.
Gorai beach has brownish wet sand. The entrance to the beach is a very narrow path and don't be surprised if your car is stuck midway - there is hardly space for 2 cars to pass at the same time. It was picnic time for lots of families visiting the beach. Most of them , like us had come up with packed lunches and had spread their mats and 'chaddars' and gossiped, ate and watched the belongings while some of their folks enjoyed the waves.
Though Gorai doesn't have any of your water scooters, speed boats or other water sports; it does have your traditional 'Ghoda-gaadi' or you can jump up a horse for a short trot along the beach.
It's a relatively clean beach, though not that scenic. Coconut trees line the beach and there are villas and inns surrounding them. At the beach, you will get everything from the basic cricket accessories like a bat and a ball to shorts for those who forgot they were coming to the beach to boiled 'chana' to pink , yellow and orange 'mhaatariche kes' to 'chai' to 'taadi' to coconut water, to sweet 'taal gud'. Why, I even saw a woman selling vegetables???
