I had travelled to this magnificent place in 2008, which means 2 years back from now and I still have my memories fresh. One good thing to remember was because my husband rather "hubby had taken me since it was our wedding anniversary,and moreover I, oops WE love beaches. At this time my kid, one and only, was tiny and hated beaches.
Our ride was by road from Mumbai which was not that hectic I should say or rather hectic,smiles!!. A journey which would be around 8 hrs.
Underground WellAfter this beautiful discovery we reached our destination in no time. We were smart enough not to book our hotels and we were even more smarter, we started our sight seeing by booking the hotel. I always had the dream of staying near a beach....waking up in the morning,listening to those waves and then have a coffee.I had this dream sanctioned as we stayed in a hotel which was on a cliff and with beach beside.
This is guys what I was talking about,look at the view. By this time we headed for lunch and went out for sightseeing. As usual I would make sure I get in touch with the locals and get to know all the places to visit and shopping areas as they are the best referred "Lonely planet Guide".
Ganesh TempleThe Ganpati Temple on the coast is the main attraction for Hindu devotees. And since the town itself isn't easy to get to, the beach remains clean and the water clear. The Ganpati Temple is reconstructed in special Rajasthani style stones and look, and attracts thousands of Hindus from all over India.
A nearby place called Paawas is known for its spiritual importance.
You could also visit Jaigad Fortt,the legendary fort stands high and proud on the cliff with a spectacular view of the sea. The fort is at the entrance of the Sangameshwar river and is 35 kms away from Ganapatipule.
