Sagareshwar Beach, Vengurla, Maharashtra

Sagareshwar Beach, Vengurla, Maharashtra

Sagareshwar beach is at in Vengurla town in Sindhudurg district of Maharasthra.

I was not aware about of Sagareshwar beach till I reached Vengurla Bander while driving from Keri village, Tiracol and a visit to Vengurla Point Lighthouse (visible from Sagareshwar beach).

Paradise Beach is 9km approx. from Tiracol Fort – visited but a quest within, as I read somewhere about Vengurla beach close-by, and curiosity was existing to visit it. Next day I planned to visit though it could be visited the same day if I had prior knowledge. Anyways, again at Shiroda bypass via Keri village – Tiracol but this time not a left-turn towards Paradise beach but straight towards the search of Vengurla beach while asking villagers passing-by.

Shiroda bypass > Vengurla Bander (17.5 km) approx.

You must be wondering why Vengurla Bander because the motorbike drive ends up at Vengurla Bander, if not Vengurla beach, while passing through villages – ups-n-downs of forest hilly region. At Bander (port) there are only rocks around the sea-shore. Earlier days there was a port(Bander) existing for ships as said by a local but now-a-days evening hours fishermen boats are present, and a small whole-sale fish market you can say but yes, Navabaugh beach and Sagareshwar beach on the other side. And another information to visit Vengurla Point Lighthouse which was right there on-top of hill.

I on-the-way – 250 plus steps. The in-charge or the officer on duty was present. He permitted to visit inside to have a view from the top – miles of sea-area And Niuti rock (narrated by a local to watch) far far visible – high-rise huge rocks within the sea. Maybe I guess those rocks are much closer from Tarkali/Tarkali beach – another tourist spot – maybe I will visit one day.

Anyway, please note:

Vengurla Point Lighthouse Timings: 4pm-5pm only – a board displaying rules & regulations

And finally, I towards Sagareshwar beach – visible from top

U-turn – approx. 4.5 km drive – Vengurla Bunder to Sagareshwar beach.

It is up-to you to visit the beach maybe while coming via Shiroda bypass > Sagareshwar beach (13.5 km) approx. or maybe while going back after visiting the lighthouse.

A display board of MTDC Resort and I enter the lane to reach Sagareshwar Beach. Lord Shiva temple is just before the beach and while following the outer wall of the temple I saw MTDC resort though no tourist was present and then Sagareshwar beach.

I was only present, maybe that is why we call Virgin beach I guess. I stayed there for about half-an hour but yes, no shacks, nothing just you and nature all-around – wonderful. Yes, Vengurla Point lighthouse is visible on the right-side visible far within the image. Must visit the beach for sure.

Any other interesting knowledge to visit?

I ask myself and then a local – Yes , the reply.

Lord Ganesha temple, Redi

As Redi village was on the way back towards Tiracol – Kerim beach, I decided to visit for prayers & peace.

Shiroda bypass > Redi right-turn (3 km) approx.

And another 3.5 km inside the village to reach the Lord Ganesha temple.

A real-life story as told by Sachin Kambli/Sandesh Kambli present within the temple-area:

18 April, 1976 – Shree Sadanand Nagesh Kambli had a dream about Lord Ganesha idol present around Nagolewadi, Redi. After one and a half months of search, the Lord Ganesha idol was found, and a temple was built. Till-today Shree Nagesh himself visits the temple in the morning hours, and prayers are done. The specialty about the temple is Lord Ganesha having two hands – mostly four hands or more Lord Ganesha idol we find within temples.

Prayers And donations

And U-turn towards Tiracol – Kerim beach.

Lord Ganesha temple, Redi till Fort Tiracol is 7.5 km approx.

In-short: Kerim beach upto Vengurla Point Lighthouse, Vengurla Bander can be visited in one day while visiting Tiracol fort, Lord Ganesha temple, Redi, Redi fort, Paradise beach, Sagareshwar beach. What say? The journey continues..
