Mandwa and Kihim

Mandwa and Kihim MumbaiThe twin beaches of Mandwa and Kihim lies to the north of Alibag at a distance of about 18 km. These two beaches are very easily accessible from Mumbai. The beach of Mandwa is relatively empty and this offers a perfect place for a visit. On a bright and sunny day, the beaches of Mandwa provide a picturesque view of the bay up to the Gateway Of India. with its beautiful groves of coconut palm, Mandwa resembles very closely a typical sea beach and is one of the finest sea-side destination in Maharashtra.

Kihim is another sea-side destination that is famous for its unspoilt beauty. Its isolation is more of an advantage as city dwellers come here in thousands to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and serene beauty of nature. Kihim is a truly wonderful place. The wild flowers in the woods, rare butterflies and birds combine together to make Kihim a paradise for nature lovers.

At Chaul you can get a glimpse of the historic palaces of Portuguese as well as some Buddhist Caves. Here you will also find a synagogue. The nearest airport to Mandwa is at Mumbai.
