Quick Break from Daily Chores !!!

Thinking of a quiet break from routine . . . . not very far from Mumbai . . . . . and a practically private beach. Lie back and enjoy at Kelve Beach, not very far from Kelve Road., a station just 3 stations away from Virar on WR. You wouldn't regret making the trip !!!

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Beach is good enough a sight-seeing spot. If you still want to explore more, there is an old temple around. Khana is not a problem. The local resorts serve homely food, full of spices and punch ! They serve the food with a personal touch.

Activities & things to do: You can do all that you like to do on a beach. To start, take a dip in the sea, allow the waves to beat you and once you are through, come to the shore and play games. You are with a big group, try cricket, football or Kho-Kho. There is a lovely cart ride waiting for you, if you want to invoke the child in you !!! ……… Or, just wander around this clean, quiet and flat beach.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: It is very convenient to reach the Kelve Beach, thanks to Western Railway. . . . take a local out of Virar, get down at Kelve Rd, third station from Virar, take a tuk-tuk and you are in ! With little more home work you can reach straight from Bandra through the Daily Shuttle. On the return, you have a convenient trip at 7 pm.

Palghar is becoming a famous weekend gateway specially for mumbaikars. Hardly 2.5hrs drive or 1.5 hrs by train. Kelwa & mahim beaches are added attractions. Beaches are clean & pollution free. Also people are investing in palghar because of its rapid development, good infra structure, better rail connectivity& not far from mumbai.
