This is a retreat destination just at the outskirts of Mumbai. The beach and the Versova fort located here are very popular. Madh Island can easily be reached by road or even by a ferry from Versova, Andheri.

I am really surprised that many reviews (but written by indians in that funny SMS like english) are describing this locality as a "paradise"; even googling you will find such outdated info. Maybe once, this place was looking better, but nowdays (I spent Easter day there) no more. The small city seems one pictured in one of those movies like... More

Madh Island.. the name island makes it more sophisticated.. but its actually not! We stayed in a guest house in madh island near beach. It is very far from the city so yes the advantage is.. its peaceful but not so as there are local people staying in the village and I did not find it very safe. The beach... More

The waves are lots of fun but there is a very strong undercurrent, so only go ankle-deep. A little dirty but very nice sand and shells. You can see the sun set over the water. Stay for a nice long time and dig lakes and rivers in the sand if you want. Dig one big enough to sit in and... More
