Clean, a little crowded in some areas...but if you walk a few hundred metres away--totally private...long beacj to walk and very safe to swim---not rocky at all...flat seabed for quite a distance. MTDC right on the beach so private access. Thankfully quite clean -- can give Goa's beaches a run for their money -- if only Maharashtra gave Tourism a... More

We had visited Tarkarli sometime back, If you are visiting this place specially for beaches, you could prefer Devbag beach. But if you are here for scuba, This is one of the best place in India. Though beaches are better compare to other part of Maharashtra beaches. I have seen most of the Maharashtra sea-side beaches. You can book beach... More

Me and my wife went to this beach on a day trip from goa. Although by the time we reached the sun was high up in the sky, the beautiful beach and the king drive more than made up for it. I felt Devbaug was prettier than Tarkarli. We went for water sports and a lonely long boat ride. The... More

Tarkarli Beach is definitely one of the best beaches in Maharashtra. It is very close to Malvan Town. The Sindhudurg Fort is clearly visible in the distance in the middle of the Arabian Sea. There is a beautiful resort run by the MTDC, where one can drop in to have a Malvani meal with fish curry. They have stay options... More

Tarkarli is currently marketed as Rustic konkan experience and all. I will suggest wait for few years for the place to develop to become tourist friendly and even people to get the mindset. Beaches are only good thing, water sports can be done anywhere so Tarkarli is not the only option...Currently scuba diving is marketed..but it is also not developed... More

We stayed at MTDC RESORT which was having a nice cottage along with the sea coast. It was a nice feeling stayng in a hut havng your own hammock in front... More

Me and my wife started out week long road trip from Hyderabad to Kolhapur and then to Malavan. We stayed at the Ajol at Nerur Gaon which is approximately 25 mins away from Tarkarli beach. Really had great time doing scuba diving. Although water is not that clear but scuba is cheap compare to any other place
