About Kashid Beach
Kashid Beach is one of the best beaches along the Konkan belt on the west coast of India. It has overwhelming beaches boasting of clear deep blue sea water and shimmering white sand . The town has breathtaking locales with hill with sprawling green cover and paddy crop fields. It is a surfers dream destination, the sea throws up waves as high as five to six feet and offers a wonderful opportunity for sea surfing. However surfing during the monsoon seasons extending from the month of June to the month of September is strongly not recommended due to the unpredictability of the sea. While here, a stay with the locals in cottages is a better option, it gives a welcome opportunity to taste the best Konkan food prepared by the locals themselves.
Kashid Beach is considered as a better option compared to Alibaug by many because of better and cleaner beaches. Kashid Beach is a great option for weekend getaway for people of Mumbai and Pune.
Best time to visit kashid beach is from November to July for water sports on the beaches and wandering across the coastal town. August to October for people who love fresh rain-washed flora and the faint heartwarming smell of the earth.
