Sindhudurga fort:-
Sindhudurg is a fort which occupies an islet in the Arabian Sea, just off the coast of Maharashtra
in western India. The fortress lies on the shore of Malvan town of Sindhudurg District in the
Konkan region of Maharashtra.


Snorkeling:

Snorkeling is the practice of swimming on or through a body of water while equipped with a
diving mask, a shaped tube called a snorkel, and usually swim-fins. Use of this equipment allows
the snorkeller to observe underwater attractions for extended periods of time with relatively little
effort. Snorkeling is a popular recreational activity.


Scuba Diving
Scuba diving is a form of underwater diving in which a diver uses a self contained underwater
Breathing apparatus (scuba) to breathe underwater (Swimming is not necessary)

Tarkarli Beach
Tarkarli is a narrow stretch of beach with pristine waters, located at the convergence of the Karli
River and the Arabian Sea. It is 546 KMs away from Mumbai, 6 kms. South of Malvan, on the
West coast of India. This place has gained prominence because of its transparently clear seas,
Where on a fairly sunny day; one can see the sea- bed up to a depth of 20 feet. This beach can be rightly called as ‘Queen Beach’ of Sindhudurg.

Tondavali

Located just off the main attractions and far more crowded destinations in Malvan, Tondavali is a secluded beach alongside the Kalaval creek, ideal for a long holiday away from everything. Just under half an hours drive away from Malvan and at about 45 kms from Kankavli, Tondavali beach along with another pristine beach - Achara, is an ideal get away for a beach lover!

 

Dolphin Safari

Tondavali being a secluded spot is one of the best regions for a dolphin sighting trip into the sea. Schools of dolphins are often visible even from the shores of Tondavali.

Kavada Island

In the Arabian about few kms West from the beach line is this uninhabited rocky island. (Here you can also enjoy swimming at safe zone).
