You can’t go to Ganpatipule and not visit the beach. The Ganpatipule beach is known for its clean sand and crystal blue water. You can plan a perfect picnic with your kids here. Enjoy water sports and many such activities that are available on the beach at reasonable rates.
The Ganpatipule temple is considered to be one of the most sacred temples in Maharashtra. Some people only visit the town for the temple.
