Perfect weekend spot for water sports lovers

Malvan is a perfect location for beach and water sport lovers. It is recommended to visit during October/November. It is less crowded compared to Goa and beaches were very clean, I recommend a 2-3 days stay. The must visit places include Tarkali beach, Malvan beach, Chivala beach, Sindhudurg fort, Rock garden, Jai Ganesh Mandir. Water sports include jet ski, boating, speed boating, snorkelling, scuba diving, parasailing, banana ride, water skiing. Chivala beach is a very underrated beach. But I would recommend it as a must visit during evening it was the best beach to play on shore, neat and less crowded. I missed Dolphin Safari since I visited in May. Recommended food includes Non-Veg Thali which includes different types of fish fry like King fish, Promfret, etc. It was in traditional Malvani taste and I tried many fishes in different shops. Must try food also include vadapav, the famous Maharastra street food. I experienced tasty fish items and vadapav in bazaar which is around 1 km from Malvan beach. Try sol kadi which is provided in all thali. Hotels were very small, but taste was excellent. The nearest railway station is 30 km away. Food facilities were very less in railway station and in beaches. Recommended to carry food, snacks & water everywhere.

Malvan, a decent beach to go

Malvan is an enchanting place to visit. The Sindhudurg fort is an unique experience. The only temple of Shri Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is situated here. The food is great. One must visit at bamboo hotel for both veg & non veg food. Tarkarli is very famous for it's water sports. However if someone wish to go for a calm beach, he must go for Chiwla beach. The beach is so sacred, very few people visit there. Hence the beach is so clean.

Nice place to visit with nice attractions

Cashew nuts, mangoes, Kokam, fresh variety of fish, long coast line, even though village in Maharashtra still has all the amenities. Well connected with trains and by road. Many temples, Dhamapur lake, beaches are the main attractions. A long weekend and small budget this is the best option.

Silent Beach at Shore

All beaches are silent at the shores. There goes the saying Silent beaches are deep inside. The day we reached Malvan beach, we got news around 40 people drowned in beach though they were warned not to go far the shore. Few were rescued but still 15-20 went missing.

Amazing Malvan

Malvan is a small beach town in the Konkan region of Maharashtra and is an ideal destination to spend 2 - 3 nights. Major attractions are the Sindhudurg Fort, Tarkarli Beach and Deobaug. This destination has ample options for every one and for people of all age groups. One can enjoy adventure activities like scuba diving, snorkelling, para sailing, etc. Else you can also relax on the beach and have a good time! There is a fish marmet nearby where you can enjoy and have a good time! Malvan is a paradise for fish lovers and the Malvani cuisine is one of the best when it comes to sea foods. The best way to enjoy this place is to stay at a homestay rather than staying at a hotel as you get to enjoy the homely atmosphere and the local flavors.

Best time to visit would be during summers when the markets are full with the king of fruits Alphanso Mango which is available at half the price than in Mumbai.

A place with scenic beauty

Malvan, situated at the western coast of Maharashtra is perfect place to enjoy the Konkan package at one single place. You will get konkani food, beaches (both sandy as well as Rocky), adventure sports, seafood, watersports, historical fort in sea, near sea as well as over the mountain overlooking the sea.

Well,if you are in search of a holiday spot a bit cheaper than goa and beautiful than alibaug then Malvan is the right place for you.A hub for avid fisheatarians.It is situated in the Konkan region in Sindhudurg district.It is best for cuisine(fish and rice),Khaja(a sweet) and laddoos.Its got pristine beaches,caring people and good atmosphere.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: As said before,Malvan is known for its food culture and is right place for fisheatarians.Fishes like prawns,lobsters,king fish,mackeral,bombil,tisrya(shells),Crabs form the seafood menu card of this region.A dish called 'Vade-Sagoti',a combination of spicy dry mutton curry with vade(a bread made out of rice and other food grains) is also very famous.You may find many hotels in this town.Special mentions:Hotel Ruchira,Sagar Kinara,Sea-shore.
Talking about the tourist attractions the fort Sindhudurga tops the list.Boat services are avialable nera the sea shore areas.While on the journey to this fort,you will see a lot of seagulls hovering now and then.Sindhudurga fort also has one of the rare sights-a coconut tree with a branch!!!Snorkeling services are also available here.
The next tourist spot is Rock Garden.A beautiful place to enjoy sunsets,morning and evening walks.

Malvan a truely Memorable Expereince

Its an awesome destination to hang out with your family and friends.
The beaches are clean, the water is clear, the atmosphere is pleasent, the food is delicious, the air your breathe is pure.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Food - You get to eat the typical Malvani (veg and non-veg) food out there. Something which Metro cities like Mumbai and Pune try to bring in the taste with the Restaurant Names like Sindhudurg, Malvan or Konkan but fail by a huge margin. The actual Malvani taste you will find in the entire Sindhudurg belt. Only two words - SIMPLY DELICIOUS. One restaurant - 'Chaitanya' we visited, was real good
Sightseeing - You can visit loads of beaches like Shiroda, Yelegaar, Terekhol (on the Goa Border). Each one is better than the other. 'Sindhudurg Fort' is a must watch. Look at the architecture. Mindblowing Engineering Exxcellence. Hiring a guide is individaul decision but most of the information is written inside the fort. Then there is Kunkeshwar - Temple of Shiva and a beach. Yes and not to forget the Tarkarli backwaters.
Shopping - In season, you can buy Mangoes (if you have an eye for the Quality) and Jackfruit. You can also search for Back berries (Jambhul), carrisa corandas (karwanda). You need not buy, you will find plenty of un-owned trees bearing those nutritious fruits.

Activities & things to do: Snorkelling, Scuba Diving are some activities thatt are being carried out near the Sindhudurg Fort.
Lot of water sports are carried out at the Tarkarli Backwaters
1) Snorkelling is charged around 300/-
2) Scuba diving is charged around 1200/-
3) Launch to Tarkali backwaters is charged around - 1200/- (but it is worth)
4) Water Sport activites cost range from 150/- to 1000/-
Plus you have beaches and beaches to swim and bath in - Word of caution - The Beaches are good and safe but the water carries some sand which will get trapped in your clothes

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: From Mumbai,
If you are going by Train, catch any Goa bound Train
If you are going by a vehckle - Either take up the Road to Goa. 50 Kms before Panaji you will get a right to Malvan at Kasal OR Go to Kolhapur and then come to Malvan.
Goa Road is shorter but slow, Kolhapur Road is little longer and costlier due to Tolls but very fast
Again I am mentioning that if you do not visit Tarkarli Backwaters and see the Sindhudurg Fort, then you have not seen Malvan.
