Kashid Beach is located on the coastline of the Arabian Sea, in the Northern Konkan region in Maharashtra. It lies on the Alibag-Murud road, at a distance of about 30 km from Alibag and about 160 km from Mumbai. The beach is considered one of the best beaches in the Konkan region.

Kashid Beach is popular for its white sand, blue waters, lakes, water streams and green mountains in the surroundings. The beach stretches for about 3 km and lies amidst two rocky hills. There are casuarina groves throughout the seashore. 

The waves here rise as high as 5 to 6 feet, making it ideal for surfing. However, surfing is usually not allowed during the monsoons, in between the months of June to September, as the waves become very high.

"The cleanest beach of the Konkan Region" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Kashid is surely the best beach of the Konkan region. There are several reasons for that:

1. It is very clean as compared to other nearby beaches like Alibag.
2. It is surrounded by two hills.
3. The local public is very kind and the sea food they offer is by far the best I my friends ever had.

We reached Kashid beach on a weekend in afternoon and stayed in a cottage. This allowed us to have a look at the sunset. The chill air was enough to make you feel relaxed and fall asleep. Our group stayed in the night and we enjoyed every moment of it by dancing with the owner of the cottage on Marathi DJ songs on a speaker. The food was delicious both veg and non veg. Second day early in the morning we witnessed the sunrise and played football, volleyball and cricket in the sea water. As early in the morning there is no rush, you can spend quality time with your family or loved ones.

"Tranquillity"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Way back in 2008, when I was at Kashid for the first time ever, It was clean, serene and picture perfect beach, in the hinterlands of coastal Maharashtra. Night at beach was gallop of darkness, with nothing to be seen beyond yourself with soothing and enticing sound of waves. Only Maggie and omelet as food options. The beach though has become much more commercialized with passing time is still a great weekend getaway.

"Calm & composed- Kashid Beach"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Its a beautiful place to go for a one day outing. After a walk on the beach and riding on the horses. You can definitely indulge in a water sport like para sailing and jet skiing. The hammocks by the beach side are definitely worth a nap. Don't forget to try the bhurji pao, Maggie and tea on the beach side stalls from the locals.

"One of the cleanest beaches that I have seen"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Kashid small town in Maharashtra is mostly prominent for its gorgeous beaches, along with other attractions like Murud Janjira Fort (30 min drive), Birla temple (approx 45min drive), Phansad Wildlife Sanctuary. Kashid is primarily a beach township situated on the seashore of Arabian Sea is sparingly populated on weekends. Kashid beach located in North Konkan region of Maharashtra is easily accessible from the major places of Maharashtra with easy connectivity by roadway.

Kashid beach is blessed with white sand and great scenery and it is also considered to be one of the cleanest beaches in Konkan region. The experience of sitting ideally at sea shore and enjoying the breeze can make one feel at peace from the tiring daily routine. Good quality Tea, kanda pakora, nariyal panni etc are available at reasonable price and there are a lot of shacks on beach side where you can relax and enjoy. Washrooms and Bath facilities are also available at minimal cost of Rs. 20 per bucket of fresh water to clean yourself. Basic water sports facilities are also available like water scooter, banana ride etc.

How to reach: We went to Kashid after visiting Murud Janjira fort, so this was a 30min drive, in the way we also had lunch a simple veg thali at a small Dhaba and that was wonderful treat. From Pune, you can take, expressway, exit at Khopoli and take Pali - Khopoli road to Roha - Murud - Kashid or else you can also take Pune - Chandani Chowk - Paud - Mulshi - Kolad - Roha - Kashid road.

My suggestion for couples travelling on this route is to avoid Mulshi - Kolad Road as this is very lonely and lacks basic facilities in route, although this is beautiful route and doesn't have any tolls, whereas you may take express way and pay Rs 146 as toll for Khopoli exit (this is safer route)

Best Time: November to March is definitely the best season else you can enjoy this beach any time if it's not raining.

Note's:
1. Carry sufficient cash for entire day's expense, as there are no ATM in or around Kashid village.
2. Keep you tank full as again you won't find petrol pumps easily.
3. Do not depend on big name / famous restaurants like Kashid Beach resorts or other such resorts for food, they will charge anything for food depending on their mood and your condition for food which was not worth even Rs 100 they charged Rs 600 per person in the name of buffet and they take only cash.
4. Carry a pair of clothes for yourself to change after enjoying beach and salt water of sea, the bathing costs Rs 20 for a bucket of water
5. If leaving from Kashid by sunset, prefer taking express way to Pune or Mumbai rather than any other route.
6. There are no pubs, clubs or alcohol available nearby the beach and better to avoid such things for pleasant and peaceful experience for self and other.

Important: Beaches are to enjoy and to give pleasant memories, don't spoil them by doing stunts or getting inside the sea beyond the safe zone. Please read and follow the notice and caution sign board.

"Best for a long weekend"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Reaching the venue was difficult but it was worth it. Clean beach and water sports were the highlights. The awesome weather added like a cherry on top. The only drawback was availability of good food. Worth watching the sunset. It's was totally a fun spot to with friends or for a romantic outing.

"Clean & nice holiday for a couple of days"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Kashid is around 250 km from Mumbai. It is close to Alibaug however is not a as crowded as Alibaug, it's serene, with pretty clean beach. Best time to visit November to March. I visited the are in October it pretty hot and humid. The place has great water sports options. Be sure to ride Banana boat or the speed boats /water scooters, its a great experience for people not afraid of water. Food is not great it's more of local food which is nice but have limited options especially in the evenings. Good place the for a couple of days.

Clear water and great fun is something guaranteed here. There are various food joints and stalls near the beach. Horse rides and bike rides are also available. Probably 20 kms away from Nagaon beach. Nature here is prosperous in every aspect. Not very loud beach.
