HolidayIQ Reviewer R R shares, “Atithi bamboo a restaurant which we had heard about in the reviews we had read. Unsure of how the food will turn out to be, we ordered a Makhul thali (Squid plate - Rs 80), Pomfret Tahli (Rs 170), and some side orders. The Quality and the quantity of the food were well beyond our expectations. Finally it tasted like we were having malvani food, I can say that with confidence as I have had the authentic Malvani food before. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Hemant Sant shares, “Can you imagine a drive libby tallest coconut trees and other greens on a tongue like land projection into the Western Indian Sea, Arabian as most call it. Turn left to see the houseboat or fisherman's canoe floating on the Dark black Water coloured river due to dense green vegetation on its both banks. Turn right to open your eyes wide to expanse of the Sea. Then drive to Devbagh Beach from main Tarkarli MTDC Resort road towards south west. Watersports, Dolphin rides boat to nearby beaches of Isolation or seafood shacks are all here. But when you subtract all of this you get the quietest wedding of a river with the sea. Go do not miss this when in Malvan. Sindhudurg district of South Maharashtra. This will make you forget for hours the whitest miles of sands of Tarkarli the Greece of peninsular India as few compare it with serenity guaranteed if you make efforts for it.” Read Full Review
