"Blue sea view from the Lighthouse"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 30, 2016
Jaigad Lighthouse can be reached from Ganpatipule 15 Km or from Chiplun via Hedvi 80 Km. The Lighthouse was built by the British and it still stands still and is well-maintained. You can also go to the top deck of the Lighthouse.

Recommended time to visit is early morning or evening.

"OK to visit, but not a must"

  • 3.5/7
  • Posted May 1, 2014
Visit the Jaigad Lighthouse only if you have some spare time. You wouldn't find much around the place. There are many other places and landmarks to visit in Ratnagiri and Ganpatipule. Jaigad Light house is located few km away from Ganpatipule.
