Road trip to Vengurla

November 2016 we took a road trip to Vengurla from Mumbai. Since it's a long journey, we took a overnight halt at Koyna Nagar.

On the First day of our visit we spent half a day exploring Vengurla town. Charming, cosy, rustic, sleepy can be an apt description to describe Vengurla. Honest, hardworking, helpful are the Vengurla local residents. Away from the daily grind of city life this place is good to unwind and rejuvenate.

We started our tour with a temple visit.

Sateri Temple- It is believed to have been built by the Pandavas originally. The structure is still incomplete as it is said that the Pandavas moved away after sunlight.

Nursery- Fruit orchard- We saw many varieties of fruit plantations here. We were given a tour of the orchard by a guide. We also visited a lab here where they explained how the insects are bred and cultivated to use in the process of saving plants and trees.

Light house- it was an enthralling experience to climb atop the lighthouse and see the fascinating beach and sparkling water spread below us.

Market : Even the hustle-bustle of Vengurla market has its own charm.

Beach : Evening spent at Vengurla beach was wonderful. Many fishermen had unloaded their boats full of fish on the beach. It was touching to see the hard work put in by the fishermen to bring the heavy boats aboard the beach. It's a wonder to see that such simple living also gives content to these hard working fisher folks. By travelling to such new remote places there's so much we can learn by observing the people around and by getting to know about their livelihood.

It's a wonderful place to experience the exotic beach and mouth watering sea food..

Vengurla Overview

Vengurla is a beautiful town located in the Sindhudurg District of Maharashtra. It is surrounded by Tulas Hills on the east, Dabholi Hills on the north and Mochemad Hills on the south and the Arabian Sea on the west.

One of the busiest ports during the ruling period of Maratha King Chhatrapati Shivaji, this port served as a trade centre carrying out various business activities from its shores. Huge godowns, warehouses, trading centres and markets provide an evidence of this port being the trading hub during the rule of the British. Moreover, between 1664 and 1812, the town was burnt twice because of the attacks by the enemy forces.

Marathi, being the state language, is spoken here at a wide scale, while Malwani is the most preferred choice among locals. The population of Vengurla comprises people mainly following Hinduism, Christianity and Islam. Ganesh Chaturthi is the famous festival celebrated in the region. The festival is celebrated every year, during August and September, to worship Lord Ganesha, the deity of Maharashtra.

Surrounded by the bow-shaped range of hills, Vengurla is popular for plantations of mango, cashew and different kinds of berry and coconut trees. Vengurla is well known for Shri Rameshwar Mandir, which is around 300 years old. Other prominent sightseeing attractions include Aravali, Fruit Research Centre, Mochemad Beach, Vayangani Beach and Vengurla's Jetty.

Dabolim Airport, also known as Goa Airport is the closest airport to Vengurla, which is located at a distance of around 59 km. Kudal Railway Station, which is located 25 km from the city centre, is the nearest railhead to Vengurla. State as well private operators provide frequent bus services to Vengurla.

The best time to visit Vengurla is during the months of September to March, when travellers can enjoy various water based activities and explore the destination.
