HolidayIQ Reviewer Jackie Kapadia adds, “You can get a variety of snacks here after you're tired playing footballs with your gang. Here, we enjoyed playing football, cricket; kite flying on the beach as well as the area surrounding the beach. It's wonderful to enjoy the game here as the locals join you too. Overall the time spent here was wonderful.

Close to Mumbai, best for relaxation during weekends, peaceful,

Peaceful, and lovely place to spend the weekend or can be enjoyed on a day trip. Good food is available, close to station and highway. However the beach is not cleaned regularly. Water also carries a lot of junk and recedes almost a kilometre during low tide.

Nice Place to spend a Relaxing Weekend

Dahanu is basically a Beach destination. It has a nice, long, serene Beach, but with Black Sand, as is the case with all Beaches in the region. It is not too crowded & there are not too many Animals for rides here. There are also no stalls on the Beach, so there is hardly any littering, which is very good. A lot of people come here either for long walks or to play or even to spend the day. It is quite popular with the people from Surat & Mumbai as well, since both cities are about the same distance away from Dahanu. There are a few good Resorts just opposite the Beach where you can stay & most of them also have nice Restaurants, for you to enjoy a good meal as well. Most of the Restaurants also have a Bar License, so you can refresh yourself with a Chilled Beer or even an Alcoholic Drink, if you so desire. Dahanu is just about 130 kms from Mumbai & you can drive down in about 2. 50 hrs on the smooth Mumbai-Ahmedabad Highway, which is really a pleasure to drive on. A Great Place indeed to spend a relaxing Weekend, away from the Noisy Crowds & Pollution of Mumbai.

Dahanu Overview

Dahanu is a beautiful seaside town located in the Thane district of the state of Maharastra. Located close to the state border with Gujarat, Dahanu is a scenic town with views of the Arabian Sea. It is an important coastal town of the state and is the municipal council of the Thane district.

The name of the town originates from the word “Dhenu Gram” which literally means village of cows. This name was given to the town because at one point of time a majority of the people of the town owned cows and cattle.

In recent years, the town has emerged as an important commercial and industrial town of the state with many factories and industries. The nearest airport is the Mumbai Airport which is about 145 kilometres away.

The town is quite picturesque with its peaceful stretch of sea beach, coconut groves and casuarina trees lined by the beach area, rose gardens, and the beautiful fruit orchards. In fact, Dahanu is known for its chickoo production and 50 percent of the country’s chickoo production comes from here.

The beach here is quite beautiful and clean, and is a great place to spend the day. The sea here does not have much current and remains peaceful, making it ideal for swimming and enjoying a relaxed time by the beach. The beach in Dahanu stretches up to around 17 kilometres.

There are a number of temples in and around the town. There is a well known Jain Temple around the fort area in the Dahanu village. The people of the area were originally tribal and they still retain the tribal culture and tradition which add to the charm of the place. While in Dahanu, tourists can also choose to visit Udwada which is known for its beautiful Parsi temple with the sacred fire.

The best time to visit Dahanu is during the months of October to March. During this time the weather is pleasant and comfortable to explore the town and its beach. Summers are hot and humid and best avoided.
