A small, idyllic town on the narrow strip of the Arabian Sea, at the southern tip of Mumbai, Alibagh or Alibaug, is fringed with tall coconut trees and golden sandy beaches lapped by the ocean. Apart from the quaint village houses, it also has farm houses of Mumbai’s affluent folk.
Nearly 300 years old, Alibaug was founded in the 17th century by Sarkhel Kanhoji Angre, a naval chief of Shivaji’s kingdom. The Maratha’s made Alibaug a Taluka in 1852 and named it Shribag.Because Alibaug was not connected to the mainland by road at that time, the only way to get here was through the sea from Revas, Dharamtar or Mankule. However, the construction of the Dharamtar Creek opened its doors to a wider public, connecting it to metros like Mumbai.
Meet, assist and drive to Alibaug. Arrive Alibaug and check in at hotel. Later visit the beaches to spend leisure time. Night stay at hotel/resort.
After breakfast, visit the Kashid Beach which is at about a 30 kms drive from Alibaug. Kashid has 3 km stretch of beach tucked in between two rocky hillocks. It is by far the best beach in this part of the Konkan region. Return to the hotel in the evening for a comfortable overnight stay.
After breakfast check out from hotel and drive towards Mumbai with sweet memories of tour.
