Danny from India on September 06, 2020:

Prithvi, your articles are very interesting. I love Tarkarli beach and all beaches in the Malvan coast. Actually I had visited Tarkarli beach in 2016 with my whole family and it was an amazing experience with seaside cottages, seafood thalis, sol kadi drink, and a host of adventure activities.

In between, we visited Sindhudurg fort and truly enjoyed the breathtaking beauty surrounding it. Just on entering the fort, you will find a small temple dedicated to Ganesh. There is also a well inside and the area has lots of coconut grooves. It is built on a massive area and I was amazed at the ingenuity of the masons who built it.

Ankita B on September 06, 2020:

Wonderful article Prithviraj. I didn't know about this beach so it was great to know about the attractions this beach provides. Thank you for sharing.

Liz Westwood from UK on September 06, 2020:
