The road, at the time of my trip (Nov 2014) leaves a lot to be desired; but then which road in Maharashtra today does not? The travel on the expressway is great, but the moment you leave the express way, be prepared for pot holes, no signages and narrow two lane roads. Having said that, the road is scenic and drive is enjoyable if the driver and passengers can ignore the condition of the road.
My travel was quite adventures. Do not get surprise, my cab driver was very new to this route and even he was not aware how to reach Puna-Mumbai Expressway from my place. We reached Alibaug after a long time asking the routes from the locals. It took around 5 hours to reach where as the journey was just about 3-4 hours.
I love to drive so I mostly do road trips with my family and friends. Enjoyed this trip too as the road conditions are good so that we all can enjoy the cozy ride. Road side dhaba's serves good food so try them on your way to Alibaug. Even the signboard are clear and very helpful.
