Ganapatipule - A virgin beach of Maharashtra

On the land of Ganpatipule, one of Maharashtra's almost virgin beaches where you can have Sparkling blue waters, Sun beams dancing through the swaying palms, Endless stretches of golden or silver sand, Waves playing with the sand dunes, a cool breeze whispering sweet nothing in your ear.
Ganapatipule lies along the Konkan coast, approximately 375 kms south of Mumbai. S. T. Buses ply from Mumbai and Ratnagiri to Ganapatipule. On Konkan Railway Bhoke is 35 Kms. However the convenient railhead Ratnagiri is 45 Kms.
Nestled in the greenery is an almost 4000 year old land mark - the Swayambhu Ganapati temple. Ganapatipule is a small village, serene, sedate and unspoiled. The beach here is still as natural and pristine as ever. And traveling by roads is an experience by itself. The vast "Konkan" stretch abounds with scenic greenery. There are narrow mud-roads, the earth is red and the roofed houses with clean courtyards add a quaint touch to the panorama.
The MTDC resort lies on the slope of a green hillock, facing the sea. Alphonso mango trees and coconut palms dot the 45 acre grounds. Sea view cottages, Tents and Konkani houses are also available.
If you want to a relaxing holiday or a lazy holiday where you want to be away from crowd this is the place you must visit. Lazy holiday means tea at the beach, breakfast at the beach, lunch at the beach and evening at the beach sitting under the umbrella with shadows of coconut trees. Whole resort is having a plenty of coconut trees. Also if you take a 5 min walk on the beach you will small market and shack around the beach.
