Madh Fort is a small fort in northern Mumbai, India situated at Madh Island. It was built by the Portuguese. If you wanna see only important places in mumbai then you can skip this one.

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 .

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
