Guhagar is a quaint little town in the Ratnagiri district, with its serene clean beach, shiny coconut trees with calmness that one lacks in the big cities. To get to Guhagar, the route from Mumbai is via NH17 up to Chiplun, which is 40km from Guhagar. The beach is hardly 200 metres from the main bus depot.

What’s Unique About It?

The beautiful Guhagar beach lies on the long stretch of the Kokan coast {the long stretch along the Arabian sea in that area} untouched by the tourists so far. It’s a textured white sand beach with clean and blue waters lapping up on the shores day and night. It’s a wonderful beach for getting some quiet time, soaking up the sun and unwinding from the city stress.

Anything Else?

It’s not just restricted to the Guhagar beach, if you’d like to spice it up a bit and go beach hopping. We suggest checking out Velneshwar beach, a small cove of a beach set against the backdrop of lush coconut trees, hilly terrains and blue water. If you’d like to explore the cultural bit of this area, dropping in by Hedvi for its Dash Bhuja Ganesh temple {which is situated on a hillock} can be an enriching venture for you. All in all, you can really make an exciting trip out of this, and get a lot of seen in a day even possibly.

So, We’re Saying…

Have you been looking forward to escaping to a beach that is hidden, clean and the bliss that needs to be showered on you? Then Guhagar should be on your list for the next weekend getaway. Grab your bag, call up your crew and give in to the waves of the Guhagar beach.
