Kashid Beach

It was a fine morning when we arrived at Mumbai. Rainy season is the best time to be here..err not in Mumbai I meant but to the final destination-Kashid…our earlier plan was to get parked at Alibaug…but as it was expected the weekend and the rainy weather had done wonders to people’s mind and they all booked the resorts at Alibaug ! Okay, thanks to them that we decided to take a further ride towards Kashid-Murud beach…and we finally landed at Kashid Beach Resort at Kashid.


While on the way to Kashid..we took a break at ‘Kshanbhar Vishranti’..a small restaurant which provides delicious food to relish through the entire journey 🙂


The food the we had…

Vada Paav [they ran out of paavs so provided bread instead]
Yumm Dahi Misal
They gave this message 🙂
It means: If you like the food tell every one..If you don’t like it tell us !

We also stopped for a while at ‘Karnala Bird Sactuary’ which is small trek in itself..we saw groups coming in with picnic baskets and loads of enthusiasm to make it a perfect weekend with the mother nature. Few pictures from the sanctuary:

We met Mr. Crab on the way
Something went wrong with Mr.Monkey 😦
Beauty !
Cosy-ing
The board outside the cages said this: that the birds will be freed in the natural habitat after few days of caging…

Bird Orphanage
There had been notices all along the entrance to be careful about throwing your litter here and there like:dustbins have been placed everywhere so please use them AND do not drink or smoke…alas..who listens to that right ? Look at this:

what to say ! hmmpf


Okay so after this short break on the way we started for Kashid…greenery that we witnessed throughout the way was something like this:

I love roads… 
Looks filmy but it’s for real 🙂
Quick Info on Kashid:

Kashid is a beach town on the shores of Arabian Sea, in the North Konkan region of MaharashtraIndia. It is located 30km from Alibaug and 135km from Mumbai on the Alibag-Murud road.
Kashid is popular mainly because of its white sand, blue seas, green mountains, paddy fields, and rivulets. Kashid has a 3 km stretch of beach tucked in between two rocky hillocks with Casuarina groves all around the seashore. This is by far the best beach in this part of the Konkan region and though absolutely deserted on weekdays, the town can attract its fair share of week-end holiday makers. The waves here are unusually high and can be paradise for surfing. The waves can reach a height 5-6 feet even during the non-monsoon months. However it is dangerously high during the monsoons and surfing is not recommending during the months of June to September.
We booked KBR for our two days halt.

The beach is awesome…breathtaking can be the word to describe the place..

Nothing like taking a stroll at the beach in the mornings…and then coming back..lying on the hammock and reading your book while sipping the ginger tea ! Ahh, bliss that is !

It was a fun weekend..beautiful in rainy season..one must plan a trip if you haven’t yet and if you’ve already been there you wouldn’t agree more with me on this 🙂

Have Fun !
