My TripAdvisor Review No.117: Harihareshwar Beach, Raigad District, Maharashtra.

“Two Beaches. Too Beautiful.”
4 of 5 starsReviewed 10 September 2015NEW
Harihareshwar beach is about 18 km south of Shrivardhan town on the Konkan coast. It is actually two beaches divided by a hill in the centre. At the base of the hill is the famous Lord Shiva Temple from which this beach town gets its name.

The north beach next to the temple is a long straight stretch of blackish sand for about 2 km. This part is more crowded with stalls and activities like quad biking and pony buggy rides. You may see some holiday makers venturing for a swim into the sea, but it’s not very safe at low tide and especially during the monsoons. The temple end of the beach has a look out platform, and this end of the beach is rockier.

The L shaped south beach is more isolated and beautiful, but it is not safe to swim here too. In fact the authorities have put up a warning sign for swimmers to be wary of the rocks and quicksands. The MTDC Resort has direct access to the south beach.

Harihareshwar is a good place to visit for its temple and for long walks along the beautiful beach, but not for water sports or for a swim in the sea.
