Guhagar Beach, Ratnagiri

After our stay in Dapoli, we moved towards Guhagar using the ferry service at Dabhol. This ferry saves you almost 50 km road and since it carries vehicles too, there can be nothing better than that.

Guahagar is a beach facing small town, very little commercialized and even in this peak season had only a few tourists.

We reached the place in afternoon and had no bookings done for stay; praying that we get some place to stay.
Maybe because it was a Monday, we got two dormitories in an managed MTDC house named Kinara. The cost is a pretty decent one of Rs 200 per head for stay. Good that we could explore our options for food on our own.

Fields behind our Hotel:

We had our lunch at some famous hotel named Annapurna. For whatever reason it is famous as serving good fish, it no way comes near even serving fresh fish. Food was fine but fish wasn't good. So if you're looking for some sea-food, I would recommend you give this hotel a miss.

In the evening we went to the beach. It wasn't much crowded at all. Beach is pretty much clean with little activities around.

As usual we made a run for the water; here again the water is safe with light waves. It doesn't slope much so you can go in to quite a depth.

After sunset, we returned back. We had coconut water on the beach which costs a mind-blowing Rs 20; more than what I get in Vashi. But since he was the monopoly and there wasn't any other option, we took it.

At night, we had a barbecued dinner of chickens.

Early next morning we want for a stroll of the beach before sunrise. It looked even more cleaner and obviously calmer now.

We returned back post sunrise and had our breakfast at some dhaba in front of Hotel Rajgad. Breakfast options are limited but it was good enough.

We checked out at 10.30 and headed to Anjanvel.
