Dry black and white sand lends a unique appeal to this peaceful and clean beach, giving it a top spot in the list of Mumbai’s famous places. You can simply laze around, go for a swim, watch or participate in a fish auction (the beach is home to a well-known fishing community, Koli), or dig into some tasty seafood at one of the cafes here. Those seeking thrill can indulge in snorkelling, surfing or scuba diving. Undeniably, photographers will fall in love with the beach at dawn and dusk.
