We stood there, captivated and mesmerized by the gorgeous sea. The waves crawling to the shore drenching the sand, and its sound beyond peaceful. The sun was going down in the water and the sky was all shades of orange 😍
We reached Kashid by 6 in the evening, a beach town on the shores of Arabian sea in Konkan region of Maharashtra. You can choose to take a boat from India Gate which will drop you at Alibaug and then can take a bus from Alibaug to Kashid. That’s a convenient and time-saving option but it remains closed during monsoon. According to google maps Kashid is only 135 Kilometers from Mumbai, but the local bus took more than 7 hours to reach there. The roads were pathetic and we were really frustrated and tired by the time we reached there, but the moment we stepped down from the bus, we could smell it in the air. You know the kind of magic you feel when you are around a river or sea? The back aching long journey started making sense. There are a lot of home stay options in Kashid. We checked out a few and walked almost a KM before finally settling for a cozy one. The one that we chose had a small lane across the street, a 200 Meter walk and we were at the beach. It literally felt like we had a private beach because there was no one around even though it was a long weekend.
Took a walk and watched the sun getting lost in the endless sea, one of the best view you can witness in your life I tell you!! It was getting dark and we were super tired, so we decided to take dinner and call it a day. Whether you are a traveler, tourist or someone who is bored with the hectic life and needs a break, Kashid is the place for you. ISOLATED, PEACEFUL AND BEAUTIFUL. Comfortable home stays, yummy food (specially fish items), relaxing at the beach, sun bathing, diving in the sea, what more can you ask for.
Woke up with the sun the next day, the sea looked so serene. Water, as far as you can see, the depth that can never be measured, the crystal clear bluish shade of sea, the wind blowing our hair, the waves crashing at our feet, the peace in the air, all of it was so majestic and mysterious, it kinda hypnotized us. I bet you cant help but fall in love with the beauty of a sea. Oh! How can i ever find words to describe the incredibility of nature. Another place that will leave you completely spellbound is Janjira Fort. The fort was originally built in the 15th century by local Maratha fishermen but was captured by the Siddis who built a much bigger and impregnable 22 acre stone fort which we see today. You can take a boat from Kashid and can reach there in around 45 minutes. We were so excited to visit the fort, can you imagine there is a fort inside the sea???? and even after centuries, it is standing still. How fascinating is that!! Unfortunately, there were high tides on the day we were there and hence no boats were sailing to the fort. Here are a few picture I found on google (No Copyrights Intended)
Coming to the clothes we wore, we played around a little with our scarfs. Lets admit it, not all of us have the curves and confidence to carry a bikini and hence this look emerged. Put on your fav pair of shorts and wrap around a scarf over your bikini. Sexy enough for a beach yet not too revealing or uncomfortable. Try it on, we are sure you would enjoy wearing it as much as we did. For the other day we picked a Floral cute dress for Manisha and I wore shorts, crop top and threw a cape over it.
Move your ass away from the crowded and noisy cities and take a dip in the sea before the weather gets too cold. Kashid is a perfect getaway from Mumbai and Pune.
Peppy Chics ❤️
