Bike Ride to Phansad, Murud – Harihareshwar – Murud (Dapoli)


Kashid Beach: The famous Kashid beach is located 18 kms from Murud. The specialty of this beach is the beautiful silvery white sand. It’s a favourite spot for advertising, TV serial and film shoots. The beach is complete with small food-stalls. If you are travelling from Alibag to Murud, the last U-turn in the Ghat section of the road that descends on the Kashid beach is simply mesmerizing’!


Phansad Wildlife Sanctuary: The Phansad Wildlife Sanctuary is an amazing revelation. Primarily a bird sanctuary, Phansad is also home to a whole array of insects, amphibians and mammals. Spread across 52.71 sq. km., Phansad is located in the Murud and Roha talukas of Raigad District in Maharashtra.


Harihareshwar: Surrounded by four holy hills Harihar, Harshinachal, Bramhadri and Pushpadri Harihareshwar is a region in Konkan which is amazingly beautiful with hills playing the perfect foil for long stretch of pristine beach. The Harihareshwar temple built in the 16th century with the deities of Vishnu Brahma and Shiva is the primary attraction in Harihareshwar along with beautiful stretch of beach.


Anjarle  Kadyawarcha Ganpati: Anjarle is a village in the Dapoli taluka, Ratnagiri district and is known for the Kadyawarcha Ganpati temple (कड्याचा गणपती) which means Ganapati on a cliff. This temple was originally constructed using wooden pillars around 1150. It was renovated between 1768 to 1780. Until the recent construction of bridge across the Anjarle creek and the building of a road up to the temple, pilgrims had to cross Anjarle creek (Jog River) in a boat, before climbing the hill using steps which pass through Anjarle village.


Fishing Village at Harnai:Harnai port is the main fishing village. Every evening hundreds of fishing boats come back after fishing and gather to auction their catch. The fish auction is the essential trade step between fish landings and the trade.Business worth lakhs of rupees is carried out daily between 4 pm to 7 pm. Witnessing the fish auctions here is a awe inspiring experience and you could also hitch a ride in a bullock cart here!!

Harnai port should be one of the essential part of any Dapoli vacation not just for the auctions. You could vist the Kanakdurg fort with a lighthouse offering splendid views of the ocean Suvarnadurg fort and the fishing village. You can also visit the historic Suvarnadurg fort from here and enjoy a boat ride too!


Murud  Beach:Located on the rugged Konkan coastline, Murud is a small town about 11km from Dapoli. A long, scenic stretch of a beach with swaying palms and a beautiful, ancient Durga Devi temple are its primary attractions. It is also known as Murud – Harnai.
