Typical Malvani seafood is available in every restaurant across Vengurla and adjoining places. Fish fry and plain rice is the main diet here. You must insist to serve fresh catch of the day. If its your summer trip then Kokam Sharbat the local drink will help you a lot ( its very tasty).

Any Tips: 

Vengurla Jetty spot has getting popularity nowadys. During summers it becomes crowded in the evening. If you are not so fond of crowded places then try to visit it early morning or evening.

While you are on your way to jetty, you will find a narrow road on your left hand side which will take you directly to the beach. If you are new then it little difficult to find it. So in that case its always better to take a help from local. Also there is limited car parking on jetty and its free.
