Its a good place but the beaches are very crowded. if you are looking for a peaceful and clean beach this is not the one. Its a one time visit during rains. There are some cool water sports but a bit expensive. If you love fish this is a superb place for you. There are few loner beaches around the... More

Its a clean beach 90 minutes boat ride from Mumbai and another one hour on road. while visiting ensure the timings of low tide and high tide. If you visit during low tide, you will find fast receding water.

I have been here a few times both via ferry and road trip. Beach is crowded. Fort is good. It is better to go to kashid beach nearby. Visit this place only on winter to save yourself from sun and heat.
