We recently visited madh island for two days with our family. While the drive to madh island is quite frustrating (traffic literally crawls), the place is not bad. Madh island is for people looking for a beach holiday. I recommend going to madh island during winters, when the temperatures are better and the sea is not so rough. While the... More

It's beautiful fun and really good to visit for whole family. However too much traffic. As it's very close to the city residences.

Madh Island is away from city so less crowded. Stroll around the beach and have fun time with family and friends. Lots of cottages famous for shootings of serials and bollywood movies. Be careful in case you take a dip in the sea. Currents are very strong, especially during high tides. Lots are local food stalls .

Mumbai 's beaches are very congested .In the sense people don't go for swimming but to enjoying for morning or evening walks or family outing. This Madh Island is a little away from the main city and is difficult to reach without your own vehicle hence less crowded . But the sea is rough and many people while swimming have... More

The beach though clean and nice, but is very dangerous since the current of the water is strong and easily pull over the person inside the water. Generally during tide take care. Nice experience.

A great place to escape from the daily buss of the town. Early morning toddy is what it takes to keep it going. Cottages are scattered here and there everywhere so you can chill out the night out experience. Stroll around the beach, a quick dip in the water I bet it will never be a quick dip. Just I... More

Madh Island's proximity to the city makes it a wonderful place to spend a day or two and escape from the hustle & bustle of city life. The road to the place makes for a nice drive, with trees lining both sides of the path. The beaches here are nice and relatively clean. One can see many bungalows owned by... More

The Madh offers a chance to take a mini vacation during weekends or holidays, within the city. For starters, the drive is quite nice, once u've crossed the crowded suburbs. There are a lot if bungalow stays available as well as star hotels like Retreat and the Resort. Beaches are nice for a stroll though it's not advisable to enter... More
