So, are you a Mumbaikar? Or you’re planning to visit Mumbai? Before you decide your weekend, or prepare your itinerary, consider what I am going to tell you next. All you need is 2 days of Summer or Winter.
Alibaugh, a haven of beaches and tranquillity, has a lot to offer. Famous for its beaches and forts, Alibaugh knows how to make the best of what it already has. Since it is surrounded by water, it offers its visitors water sports, beach camping and resorts. I have been to this place before, have done water sports and even visited the Murud-Janjira fort. You can check the internet about its various beaches and forts.
Revdanda is a small village at around 17 kms (45 mins roadways) from Alibaugh. And we went there to experience beach camping. *_*
Okay now note that before going you need to do bookings for the stay (tent arrangement). Getting camp organizer’s contact is easy. Just surf the internet. There are many. You can check for Alibaugh beach camping. If you need any more help, please comment.
Summers are hot and humid in Alibaugh but the evenings are pleasant and the nights cool and calm. Winter is suggested for beach camping as then you can also enjoy camp-fires 😉 apart from barbecues, rain dance, book reading (on hammocks) and a stroll on the beach.
You can reach Alibaugh from Mumbai via:
- Ferry (suggested)
- Bus and
Please note that ferry services do not operate after 26thMay. Contact maritime services to check when they resume – https://wonderfulmumbai.com/info-on-boat-from-gateway-of-india-mumbai-to-alibaug/ You can also book tickets online.
For an explorer this shouldn’t be an issue as there are other options for commute – bus, cabs, trains etc. (but time consuming YESSS!).
Revdanda beach does not have a lot of visitors. There’s another beach near by which attracts crowd for its water sports, so at Revdanda you can just rejuvenate and camp. And in case you wish to do water sports, it’s just nearby!
Love night outs? This is a perfect place. When else and how were you otherwise planning to have a friend’s night out?
The organizers offer a nice ambience for the night. Ready your drinks, and just chill!
Alibaugh can be reached via Pune too.
- Carry comfortable beach footwear.
- Note that you will have sand all over your body, even if you clean yourself with water, it will stick again as you’ll be on the beach almost always.
