THINGS TO DO
Nagaon Beach- This calm and serene beach is blessed with clear sands and clean waters. A large variety of activities such as camelback/ horseback riding, parasailing and other water sports are available. The fresh local seafood and the breathtaking view of this place make it a must-visit.
Kanakeshwar Forest- There is a pathway of 700 steps that leads to the top. Apart from the scenic view you can also visit the old temple of Lord Shiva. It is widely believed that God himself stepped on the step “Devachi Payari” after it was built.
Kolaba Fort- This old military fortification is roughly 35 km south of Mumbai and is a protected monument. Maratha king, Shivaji, strengthened this fort to make it one of his chief naval stations. It was later used to launch raids on British ships.
Rajmachi Fort- Situated about 15 kms from Lonavala, Rajmachi is the perfect rustic getaway for every urban peace-seeker. At this popular trekking destination, one can enjoy the unadulterated beauty of highland greenery, chilling breezes and ancient carved relics while climbing up to the Manaranjan & Shrivardhan forts which are at 2000 ft above ground level. There’s also an ancient Shiv temple, an absolute must-see, which was recently excavated.
