Sagareshwar beach is at Vengurla town in Sindhudurg district of Maharasthra.
I was not aware about 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 – 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. 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 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 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 top – miles of sea-area And Niuti rock (narrated by a local to watch) far far visible – high-rise huge rocks within sea. Maybe I guess those rocks are much closer from Tarkali/Tarkali beach – another tourist spot – maybe 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 beach maybe while coming via Shiroda bypass > Sagareshwar beach (13.5 km) approx. or maybe while going back after visiting 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 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 beach for sure.
Any other interesting knowledge to visit?
I ask self 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 Lord Ganesha temple.
A real-life story as told by Sachin Kambli/Sandesh Kambli present within 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 month of search Lord Ganesha idol was found And a temple was built. Till-today Shree Nagesh himself visit temple in 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 – fort Tiracol – 7.5 km approx.
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?
