Some details of the Ride :
The Konkan, also called the Konkan Coast or Karavali, the name given to a stretch of rugged and beautiful section of the western coastline of India from Ratnagiri to Mangalore. Konkan is also one of six divisions of the state of Maharashtra. The precise definition of Konkan varies, but most include Maharashtra’s districts Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg, the state of Goa, and the Kanara districts (North and South) of Karnataka.

Sindhudurga fort:
Huge sea rocks of Malvan has easefully shouldered the responsibility of two Forts Sindhudurg & Padmagad on their broad chest. The name of the fort is given to the Sindhudurg district. Tourist from all over the world visit through out the year to see this Maratha glory.
The fort was built with the help of huge rocks on the Kurte Island which amazes people & one appreciates imaginative power of Shivaji. In 1664 shivaji erected this fort on 44 acers of land.
In Sindhudurg Fort there is ‘Shri Shivarajeshwar temple’ of King Shivaji. Also there are temples of Hanuman, Jarimari mandir and Goddess ‘Bhavani Temple’. Impressions of shivaji’s fingers prints found to be preserved here on one of the wall . Also lies, inside the fort worth seeing temples of Bhavanimata, Shambhu Mahadev, Jirimiri & Mahapurush. All are in good conditions.

Tarkarli Beach :
Tarkarli is a narrow stretch of beach with pristine waters, located at the convergence of the Karli River and the Arabian Sea. 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.

Tsunami Island:
Tsunami Island (near devbaug beach) is a small island on the delta of Tarkarli river. This beach cum island also is the place to enjoy boat ride in the backwaters of Tarkarli River. This island is NOT formed due to Tsunami waves, But due to this imaginary name it is a popular tourist destination for water sports where one can enjoy rides like Jet-Ski, Banana boat ride, Bumper boat, Kayaks etc.

Deobaug is a small fishing village based on a thin strip of land with Karli river backwaters on one side and Arabian sea on the other. Deobaug beach is adjacent to Tarkarli beach and ends at Deobaug sangam. It is easily accessed by the Malvan-Tarkarli road.
