Aaravi Beach In Raigad : Mumbai Weekend Gateaawy

Spread the love
The Kokan coast is home to breathtaking views, greenery, mountains, numerous waterfalls, beaches and so many hidden gems.
When it comes to kokan beaches, I cannot forget the most beautiful beach of Aaravi. Aravi Beach is located in Raigad District of Maharashtra.

Aaravi is the least known and undiscovered of all the beaches in raigad, so if you are looking for a secluded spot there is no better place in this region than Aaravi.
A beautiful stretch of beach with soft a layer of white sand beach and two hillocks on either ends gives Aaravi a look of the fabled lost paradise!
I visited this beach first time in 2015 and it did not take long to fall in love.
If you love less crowded to secluded beaches then this one is perfect for you. Unlike its nearby Diveagar Beach, this one is less popular.
If you are planning a Riagad or Diveagar trip then save some time to visit Aaravi.
No water-sports or any other commercial activities, no food stalls either. Worth visiting if you are looking for clean untouched beach.

Attractions: Very closed to Deveagar beach. 


Its a perfect weekend gateway from Mumbai as well as Pune.

Mumbai to Aaravi  – 193 km

Pune to Aaravi – 162.2 km via Tamhini Ghat Rd

The nearest railhead is at Mangaon, located about 50 km from Diveagar.

Where To Stay: Whenever I plan my Aaravi trip I do advance booking and stay at Pratima beach resort.

In terms of service,food and value for money its good. They have AC rooms and serve breakfast, 2 meals and evening tea. Also one can stay in MTDC which is in Deveagar.

What to Eat: When you are in Konkan try authentic Maharastrian food. For non-vegetarian must try Malvani chicken, Chicken with Wade , Fish try. Do not miss to have garam garam Poha.

Any Tips:

Dont forget to carry Beachwear, sunscreen, water, snacks, bag to dispose waste and a change of clothes.

If you are fond of fishing there are good fishing spots.

Take help from locals and get some good catch. Since there are very few hotels in Aaravi, try to do advance bookings.
