This beachside town bordering Gujarat is famous for its vast chikoo farms largely owned by the Parsi community. Its tribal community is a treasure trove 

of Warli art and craft.Events range from a small fun-fair with stalls to showcase tribal art and craft, agricultural products, fresh fruits and their 

byproducts, a photo exhibition on the region as well as outdoor attractions like the Chikoo Safari, Warli dance, not to forget Parsi and Irani cuisine.

beach. With over 50% land under fruit orchards, forests and mangroves, this region has a lot to offer through agro tourism. We want tourists to get a
