The Royal Natural Charm and Splendor of Alibaug Beach
With coconut trees lined up along the sandy beaches, most pleasant weather conditions and photogenic views all around – I am Alibaug Beach, the king of the Maharashtra beaches. True to my fame you are ensured of a royal treat every time you come to see me. I will rekindle your senses with my unsoiled and pallid beaches, clean waters and fresh air and will also mesmerize them with the riot of colors that takes place in the sky with the sunset.
Located in the Konkan region at the Raigad district Maharashtra, this small coastal town of mine also serves as the district headquarters. Sarkhel Kanhoji Aangre, naval chief of King Shivaji developed me first during the 17th century and my then name was Ramnath, which is now just adjacent to the main town area. Later I was given the name Alibaug as the area around me at that time was the historic hinterland of Bene Israeli Jews.
I am located only 100km south of Mumbai and the Mumbai Goa highway keeps me well connected with Mumbai. Alibaug Beach can also be reached with direct catamaran services from the Gateway of India, Mumbai.
As a municipal council I have a population of little less than 20,000 and is also proud of 79% average literacy rate. Apart from the Alibaug beach, Kolaba and Aligarh fort, Siddeheswari Mandir, varsoli beach and Nagaon beach are other popular Alibaug Tourism attractions close to Alibaug Beach. Though winter is considered by many as the best time for visiting me but I am no less beautiful in winter too.
