11 arcane Indian beaches you’ve to explore once!

Indian beaches have always been a tempting tourist destination all over the world, owing to the 7517 km long coastline, and will continue to remain one.

Countless beaches of the Indian peninsula provide many opportunities for adventure lovers, travellers who just want to relax, or for tourists who want to explore. The peninsular India, surrounded by waters in three directions, stands to enrapture the imagination of nature enthusiasts. With many beaches extremely popular amongst tourists, and Indians alike, there are few that are snubbed.

Not every one loves to spend time at overcrowded beaches. So, if you, like me, love to spend some unperturbed time at the beach, then the below list is tailor-made for you.

Without further ramblings, lets take a look at these 11 arcane beaches in India:

1. Cherai Beach, Kerala

cherai beach - indian beach

 

Instead of visiting Varkala, and Kovalam in Kerala, you must head straight to Cherai. Cherai is located just off the main Ernakulam town. Most tourists are unaware of this 15-km beach, making it a serene destination for a quite evening at the beach.

 

2. Jallandhar Beach, Diu

jallandar beach - indian beach

 

Jallandhar Beach – an unlikely name for a beach in Diu, isn’t it? This shoreline is named after a nearby shrine, which bears a carved face of Jallandhar, a mythical demon killed by Lord Krishna. Be rest assured to get your ‘me time’, as this beach is free from modern-day demons, a.k.a. loud tourists, and pesky kids.

 

3. Ezhimala beach, Kerala 

1375080319_1ezhimala-beach

 

Situated 55-km from Kannur, Ezhimala is an important historical site, featuring prominently in the Ramayana, and the Tamil Sangam period’s literature. With clear blue water as far as the eye can see, you’re likely to spot a few dolphins even from by the beach.

 

4. Devka Beach, Daman

devka

 

Devka beach is a perfect destination if you just wanna hang, and watch the sun go down off the rocky coastline. With beer and freshly fried fish freely available, it makes for a quintessential time at the beach. However, when the tide rises, navigating the waters could get a little tricky.

5. Rishikonda Beach, Andhra Pradesh

 

rishikonda-beach-hd

 

Arguably one of the best beaches in the Vizag. Rishikonda beach is ideal for swimmers, and water skiers alike, thanks to its calm waters, and golden sands.

 

6. Mandvi Beach, Gujarat

mandvi Gujarat - indian beach

 

Powdery sands, and azure blue water makes Mandvi beach a winner in Gujarat. With the proximity to the palace of the erstwhile rulers of Kutch adds to the charm of Mandvi.

 

7. Mandarmani Beach, West Bengal

mandarmani beach - indian beach

 

Mandarmani beach is one of West Bengal’s newly developed tourist destinations, with 13-km of motorable beach, and a surprisingly squeaky clean shore. We suggest you to visit this beach before it turns out to be yet another tourist attraction!

 

8. Agatti Beach, Lakshwadeep

aggati beach - indian beaches

 

The crystal clear water, and long stretches of lagoons, make Agatti beach a diving, and snorkelling paradise. This is an ideal destination for those looking to explore what lies beneath the water.

 

 

9. Devbagh beach, Karnataka

devbagh-beach-karnataka-1-3762

 

Sitting pretty at the confluence of the Kali River, and Arabian Sea is Devbagh beach. The beauty, and serenity of this beach once served as inspiration to Rabindranath Tagore, when he penned Prakritir Pratishodh.

 

 

10. Beach No. 7, Andaman and Nicobar Islands

radhanagar-beach-havelock-island-1

Locals refer this beach as the Radha Nagar Beach. Beach No 7 boasts of some of the best diving schools in India, and is a great place to go snorkeling, or scuba diving.

11. Bangaram beach, Lakshadweep Islands

bangaram1

 

Bangaram beach is the only beach in Lakshadweep islands where you can drink. This beach is not as famous as Agatti beach, as it’s difficult to reach, but is absolutely worth the efforts. This island also happens to have a lot of flora and fauna, along with a wide range of birds. An ideal destination for nature lovers.

29. Hope for a glimpse of the Kanchenjunga

 

kanchenjungaview

At 8,586m tall, it is the third highest mountain in the world and Sikkim’s most sacred landmark. The snow-capped Kanchenjunga plays peek-a-boo with you from behind the mist, and you could spend an entire week without as much as glimpse. But when it does reveal itself, it’s a sight to remember for life.

 

30. Spend the night in a houseboat in Srinagar

 

srinagarhouseboat

Pick one of the many ‘floating palaces’ anchored on the Dal or Nagin Lake for a classic Kashmir experience. Each houseboat comes with lavishly furnished rooms, verandahs and a terrace that serves as a sun-deck for evening cocktails. That’s one way to float in paradise.

roopkundtrek

The trek to Roopkund Lake in Uttarakhand is at once beautiful and haunting. Lush Himalayan forests, gurgling brooks and undulating meadows all take you to this lake at 16,500ft above sea. It’s all pretty till you see the dozens of skulls and bones lying at the bottom of the shallow lake since the 6th century. You’ll have chills running down your spine for more reasons than one.

 

35. Ride the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway

 

darjeelingrailway

Fondly known as the Toy Train, this narrow-gauge railway runs from New Jalpaiguri to Darjeeling. The most popular route, however, remains from Ghum to Darjeeling, where it cuts through streets and markets. In service for over 130 years, it has earned UNESCO World Heritage status.

Borivali National Park

Oh boy, Mumbai Rains are Making us Fall in Love Again!

One cannot simply escape the magic of rains, especially when living in Mumbai.

Rains bring to you a perfectly balmy atmosphere, whether you love it or hate it. The beauty that rains bring with them is beyond comparison. It is a welcome and magnificent sight! The way the monsoons approach over the ocean, is a vision in itself! The fierce wind, the different shades of blue and grey of the sky and the sea, the cover of the clouds, makes you feel astonished.

Not that you need a list to enjoy rains in Mumbai, here’s one for your ease 😉

 

Take a Road Trip to Marine Drive

 

Mumbai Rains

 

The Queen’s Necklace, the row of sparkling lights on the 3 kilometer stretch is a premier destination for experiencing the monsoon in south Mumbai. Stroll along the promenade with an umbrella in hand, or just sit and decipher the language of the Arabian Sea. Feel the need of a drink in hand? Dome at the Intercontinental hotel, is the place to be at! Or, may be a cup of Mumbai’s hot steaming cutting chai, will be more blissful.

 

 

Visit the Majestic Gateway of India

One of the most prominent attractions in Mumbai, the Gateway of India also gets some feisty waves during high tide. You can feast on monsoon snacks from the street vendors. For loaded pockets, the view across the bay from Souk, Taj Palace will be mesmerising.

The adventurous souls can take a ferry ride from Gateway of India and experience the spurting sea waves (Not sure if this is available in Monsoon).

Tip: Keep your camera handy.

 

Take a stroll on Juhu Beach

 

Mumbai Rains

 

There’s nothing more comforting than a cup of tea and warm street food in the rains as you wander by the beach, and Juhu gives you that liberty. The chaat corner at the entry of the beach has almost every kind of street food you could ask for – warm and spicy. Don’t miss the coal-roasted corn on the cob!

 

Relish the Bandra Bandstand

 

Bandra-Bandstand

 

 

 

In the suburb of Bandra, the Bandstand Seafront extends for around a kilometer from the rocky ridge, where the Taj Land’s End hotel is situated. With the Arabian Sea on one side, and who’s who of Bollywood on the other side, it’s an amazing place for monsoon outing. Do check out the ‘Walk of Stars’, featuring the hand prints of famous Bollywood actors and actresses. If you climb a little higher on the ruins of the fort, you can get an astounding view of the sea and the city.

 

Experience Life at Worli Sea Face

 

Mumbai Rains

 

For the ones residing in Central Mumbai, Worli Seaface is an excellent outing option. It’s famous for its wild waves at high tide during the monsoon season; you can take a walk, or sit near the seafront and see the waves crashing. Since it sees fewer visitors during monsoon, it becomes an ideal place in Mumbai if you’re considering some solitude. Additionally, you can take a drive over the Bandra-Worli Sealink, which is brilliantly lit up at night.

 

Relive the Beauty at Haji Ali

 

Mumbai Rains

 

The Haji Ali Dargah is a wonderful specimen of Indo-Islamic Architecture. Located on an isle off the coast of Worli, Haji Ali, both a mosque and a tomb, is one of the most identifiable landmarks of Mumbai. Situated right in the ocean and connected to land by a narrow pathway that becomes completely submerged during high tide, makes it look like a monument floating on the water. Even imagining a walk along the pathway to Haji Ali, with the waves splashing at your feet, is a thrilling experience.

 

Live the Rich Life at Carter Road, Bandra

 

Mumbai Rains

 

The Carter Road promenade is a kilometre long pathway along the Arabian Sea on the west side of Bandra. It is a popular hang-out place next to Bandstand – a jogging track, a park and a lovers’ point makes this an ideal locale for a walk in the rains. It is an extremely fancy location because of its shorelines, restaurants/pubs, and high-street stores.

Chances are, you might bump into a Bollywood Celebrity here!

 

Hang out with your Friends at Prithvi Theatre

 

Prithvi Theatre

 

Prithvi Theatre is a popular hangout zone for theatre aficionados; one of Mumbai’s best known theatres, it was built by Shashi Kapoor in memory of his father Prithviraj Kapoor who had dreamt of having a home for his stage-theatre company.

Read a book while you sip on a cup of hot tea, or cold coffee, while listening to the sound of rain outside. It is a quaint charming café and offers delectable rolls, burgers, bun maska, and the legendary cutting chai.

 

Take a Ferry to Manori Creek

 

Mumbai Rains

 

Manori is a picturesque and peaceful, small village by the brook that has a neat, sprawling beach, much like the ones in Goa. Although, it is inside the city limits, it’s away from the city’s commotion, and provides a quick escape from the everyday rush. You can take a ferry from Marve (3-5 mins) and reach Manori, the ferry trip smells of fishes though! However, the scenery is absolutely worthwhile; you can see the concrete buildings transitioning into the mud houses set amongst greenery.

 

Devour at Mohammed Ali Road

 

muhammed-ali-road1

 

If you are a foodie, a visit to Mohammad Ali Road should definitely be on your agenda. Since the monsoons collide with the month of Ramzan, and Eid thereafter, it is a heaven for food lovers. Though we just missed Eid, Mohammad Ali Road won’t fail to surprise your taste buds. Just be alert of the crowd, and pick your choice of lip smacking Mughlai fare.

 

Book a Boat Ride at Powai Lake

 

Powai-Lake-Mumbai-1

 

Powai Lake is an artificial, but the most beautiful lake in the northern suburb of Mumbai, snuggled between lush green flora & fauna, and hills. A silent walk in the rains, or a boat ride, both will sooth your mind and provide you with peace. You have the Powai Lake Garden to go to and get some hot monsoon snacks, to enjoy the weather with.

 

Go Mini-Trekking at Madh Fort

 

Madh Fort

 

Also known as the Versova fort, it is the ruin of a Portuguese watchtower. Madh fort is normally kept closed and is not open to visitors as it is under the control of the Indian Air Force due to the proximity of the Naval Base. However, you can ride a bicycle near the fort area and enjoy the rains. The fort is sometimes opened for film/serial shoots, if you are lucky you can witness one of those.

 

Feel the Waves at Madh Island Beach

 

Mumbai Rains

 

One of the most famous beaches of Mumbai and a renowned tourist spot, this beach is also one of the cleanest. The coast is enclosed by mangroves which apart from adding to its charm, separates the beach from the mainland. This makes a good place to take a break from the din of city life, and relish the monsoons. Mumbai’s elite society hosts a lot of extravagant parties on this tranquil beach. Rain dance, maybe?

 

Collect Sea Shells at Aksa Beach

 

7295151-Aksa-Beach-0

 

Aksa is one of the clean beaches in Mumbai. The beach is pristine, and watching the sunset on a rainy evening is quite surreal! You can also take up a cottage and collect sea shells, while walking along the shore.

 

Fall in Love with SRK at Maratha Mandir

 

Maratha Mandir

 

For the romantics at heart and King Khan Fans, there is nothing better than watching the 20-year old classic Bollywood masala, love story in the monsoons! Lo and behold, here’s Maratha Mandir for you – the only theatre that holds a record of screening Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge for longest time. Love and rain, ain’t it fulfilling?

 

Enjoy the Nature at Sanjay Gandhi National Park

 

Borivali National Park

 

Also called the Borivali National Park, it is situated on the northern borders of suburban Mumbai. One of Asia’s most visited National Parks, this is the largest park in the world that is located within city limits. It makes a good destination for a monsoon outing/picnic. A pleasant change from the usual sights, rush and glamour of the B-city, this place is good for moments of quietude and meditation. The panoramic views of hills, valleys, lakes and open expanses, drenched in rainwater, will bring peace to your mind, body and soul.

The famous Kanheri Caves are located inside the park, not a good idea for monsoons though!

 

My Personal Favorite – Go for Bicycle Rides

 

Bicycle

From the moment we stepped out of our car, we had fallen in love with the place. The entire setup exhibits the feeling of London in Mumbai. I love how these small parts of Mumbai, make the city liveable. The Rolling Pin is a perfect getaway cafe after a long day at work, and an absolutely apt destination to chill at the weekends.

Enough of the location, let’s get talking about the real deal.
