It was a pleasant morning and I had to choose from some options I had in front of me. We were planning to relax on a great white sand crystal clear water beach. Though Dolphins in the deep see were eager to meet us. The thrill of some great water sports was also awaiting us. But the enthralling feeling of witnessing the coral life through Scuba diving is what was the most lucrative one. We were just amazed by the magic of the place called Tarkarli a secluded beach on the western ghats of India in Malvan, Maharashtra.
We had visited Goa ‘n’ number of times and were looking for some other calmer option this time. About 100km from Goa, we got our destination. We got some help from India Khoj, (who are great at planning your travel as per your needs) and we ended up landing at this place which is a treat to the eyes . Tarkarli has an excellent beach with white sand and clear water. It makes the walk across the beach worth it, with sun setting above you. No mad crowd and party shacks behind. Many tourists can be seen at this place now a days but still a long coastline manages to handle it evenly.
We took it up as a weekend run away and the place was far above then what we expected. I never imagined we could do something like scuba diving with best facilities here, so near to Pune or Mumbai. The experience was great and we had great time exploring the marine life beneath. We even got a CD of our complete diving experience as memory to cherish. Apart from Scuba, we enjoyed water sports and relaxed the calmness of water with a great 3 hour boat ride with different stops in between. At the confluence of river and sea, we could sight Dolphins. It was a treat to watch them playing and splashing water all around!!
Tarkarli is an untouched beauty and is a must visit place between November to February.
And yes, if you need any help in planning your travel to Tarkarli or any other place for that matter, India Khoj . It is just a click away…
