Tarkarli, Sindhudurg, Vijaydurg, Goa Bike Ride

A 1600 k.m. journey in the southern Konkan region of Malvan. Laced with the beach trips of Tarkarli, Devbag. With snorkeling at the base of the Sindhudurg fort and then drying up the clothes in the peripheral tour of the fort itself.

Vijaydurg’s 80km trip from Tarkarli through the temples of Kunkeshwar adding more to the “Jai Maharashtra” soul. A visit to a local traditional house in Achara (20 km from Malvan) on the way back like garnishing on the tasty trip.

Goa’s beaches beckoning just 100 kms down south of Malvan. The fort trips continued with Chapora fort overlooking the Vagator beach. Calangute beach however disappointing with its overcrowded sands.

The south of Goa had more to offer with its Agonda fort or Cabo de Rama fort with lovely backdrop of hills’ cliff falling straight into the Arabian Sea. The Agonda beach with its tranquil sunny warmth and egg-laying turtle sands like an icing on the desert.

Travelling Directions

Mumbai to Malvan via NH 17, then to Goa using Coastal highway or Mahasagari Marg.
