HolidayIQ Reviewer Soumya says, “Resemblance to a Goan beach I had no expectation inside of me but when I stepped into this tiny union territory of Diu, I was thrilled. Nagoa Beach is one of the most happening places in Diu. It is the most commercial beach, lined with multiple restaurants which offer lots of drinks in addition to the variety of seafood unlike the state of Gujarat. With clean and crystal clear water, and numerous water sports, you will enjoy the beach beyond doubt. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Arti Verma shares, “Murud is about 15 km away from Kashid. There is a single road from Kashid to Murud and the drive is awesome in itself. Murud Beach is better than Kashid Beach. The beach area is vast and clean. The waves are comparatively low during normal days and of course, some water sports are there. Do not forget to oblige the Nariyal Pani Wala at Beach. You can stay either in Kashid or in Murud because the distance from Kashid to Murud is only 15 km.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rahul Puranik says, “It is an awesome place to visit during the Malvan tour. I think it is more developed than Tarkarli, with many nice hotels, all kinds of water sports, the Sangam of the Arabian Sea and Karli River (which is a backwater). It is a cool place – the only one drawback is narrow roads because of which it takes 20 minutes to reach Tarkali which is otherwise only 5 minutes away. But work at going here. We stayed for 2 nights in Tarkarli and afterwards moved to The Royal Devbag Holiday Home in Devbag Beach, I found both places satisfactory. Booking is again a luck factor as it is full all the time. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Khushnaz Khambata says, “Once there, you have one hour to visit the fort, which we thought was too rushed a visit - it would have been better to have 2-3 hours to do justice to the fort; unfortunately, the same boat that brought you here takes you back to Malvan jetty, so you have to ensure you are back to catch the boat in one hour. The fort though dilapidated is still quite majestic and has great views of the blue-green waters below. The only temple dedicated to Shivaji is found within its walls. There are also some operators conducting scuba and snorkelling around the fort. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Abhijeet Nayak shares, “This is a clean beach. This is the first thing that impressed me. A boat ride from Chunnambar boat house will take you to the beach for Rs 200 only. Only one or two shops are present which makes this a pollution free beach. Tides are always high here, so you have to be a bit careful. There are different water sports available like boating, kayaking, motor boating, etc for adventure enthusiasts. Overall, I would say it is a remarkable place to spend two hours easily.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer kajal Malik adds, “The beach is beautiful with hills on both the sides. For adventure lovers and families, there are various activities on the beach like horse carriage rides, camel rides, water sports etc. If you plan to extend your stay on Harihareshwar, there is an MTDC resort right near the beach. For nature lovers and landscape photographers - if you walk away from the commercial side of the beach you will find it quieter, cleaner and more scenic. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer ABHINAV Kumar shares, “This is the last coastal village near the Srilankan border. The Ramsetu was built through this way. Before the cyclone here, rail service was on since the British time. People go the Dhanushkodi for Pind Daan purpose and some of us only for sightseeing. You will find an amazing minibus that goes through sand and water. There is a temple near old railway station of Dhanushkodi you will find a rare floating stone there. But the beaches are awesome with clean water. At some places you will experience high tides also and some place it is calm and still.” Read Full Review
