If you thought Goa was beautiful, you should trot the Malvan coast. Unexploited, non-commercialized, untouched and virgin beaches lace Malvan making it one of the best coastlines in India.

96.3 kilometres from Arambol, Goa lies Achara beach in Malvan- a place not many have heard of. We took the Bombay Goa Highway to Sawantwadi. From sawantwadi we went to Kudal and from Kudal to Achara. It’s one of those roads that make you feel like you are lost but you are not. If you take the straight road to Achara, you will end up on the beach for that is where the road ends. Right on you’d find Dhanlakshmi Resort {Or hotel or inn- I do not remember what it was} where you can stay with rooms for as low as 700 INR. They’d serve meals too- 150 INR for fish thali {platter which consists of rice, roti, fried fish and fish in gravy} and 120 INR for vegetarian thali. Verdict: Totally worth it.

52247990From Achara, head to Tondavli beach. We were so hungry, we could only reach this far. Oh and also, the road to Tondavli from Achara is drop-dead gorgeous. Stopped for a smoke here, in the middle of absolutely nowhere.


Reminds me of the wild, wild west.

Day 3, we spent in Achara and headed to Malvan the next day. That part of the story, tomorrow 😉

Love from the coast
