tarkarli with a series of pristine beaches made up of white sand makes it an ideal choice for a holiday weekend. If lucky enough, you might spot Dolphins too. Tarkarli boasts of the finest talcum-powder sand to be found along Konkan. It could be called the most beautiful beach in all of Maharashtra, if not in India. As this place is just being discovered, you might be in time to find it untarnished by commercialization. The pristine white beaches shrouded with suru trees are a perfect place to relax, get in touch with nature and eat amazing Malvani food. The choice ranges from a long stroll along pristine white sand beaches to revisiting the past glory of Maratha bastion and forts.
Another attraction of Tarkarli is the backwaters of Karli river which extend from Tarkarli to Kudal. It is the only place to experience the backwaters in Maharashtra. The estuary of Karli river is another scenic spot located near Tarkarli.
Tarkarli is also the only place in Maharashtra where you can scuba dive. The waters are relatively clear around the Sindhudurg fort and though the reefs here aren’t exactly world class, it is not a bad idea to try it out once. Guides and instructors are helpful and patient; if you are keen, you can even enroll for a special certified course.
Tarkarli is situated close to several tourist attractions including the Sindhudurg fort (headquarters of Shivaji’s navy), Kolamb beach and Dharampur lake.Tarkarli Tourism
