Located at a distance of almost 375 km from Mumbai, in the district of Ratnagiri, this small village in Maharahstra is still untouched in the absence of any commercial exposure and it magnificently offers its charm of a calming and relaxing beauty of nature. The beaches here are not only unexplored and enjoy their everlasting beauty, but the region is also blessed with rich flora. Mangroves and Coconut palms line the entire stretch of the beach, making it a stunning view from far away. The Swayambhu Ganpati Temple at Ganpatipule is a huge attraction for the travellers. The idol of Ganpati in this temple is almost 400 years old, and engraved from a massive rock. Thousands of visitors come to the temple site to seek Lord Ganpati’s blessings each year. Because of its proximity to the Arabian Sea, the weather here remains pleasant mostly. However summers are a little heated, and tourists are lesser in numbers.
