  13. About Kashid Beach
  14. "White sand, blue seas, green mountains, paddy fields and rivulets -- it's straight out of a poster. " An all-time favourite with me, Kashid has a 3 km stretch of beach with the cleanest, whitest sand and casuarinas groves that make just the perfect setting for a beach holiday.


    The waves here are unusually high and can be paradise for surfing. The waves can reach a height 5-6 feet even during the non-monsoon months. However it is dangerously high during the monsoons and surfing is not recommending during the months of June to September.


    Driving down to Kashid itself is a rejuvenating experience. You can enjoy the picturesque scenery and visit the beach, morning, noon and evening. Like the commercial beaches there is no bhel puri of chaat stalls or restaurants on the beach. But there are plenty in Kashid village, not too far away.


    After you have had enough of the beach, hit the road and move towards Murud, also a well-known beach but which is more famous for the Janjira Fort. Murud has got crystal-clear greenish water whereas Kashid has crystal-clear blue one.


    Murud beach is quite calm and spans a 4 km stretch. About 6 km ahead of Murud is Rajapuri village from where you can take ferry to Janjira fort.


    You can also visit the Revdanda Beach Fort, though most of its parts are ruined. Also the Datta Mandir, a red domed temple which can be reached after a 20 minute trek to the top. The view from the top is quite tempting. And for bird lovers the Phansad Bird Sanctuary is just 19 km away.


    It takes about five hours to reach Kashid. It is south of Alibag and just north of Murd Janjira.
