Malvan is one of the most picturesque coastal towns in India, situated on Maharashtra’s coastline that extends up to Goa, it is a destination popular for it’s unspoilt beaches and it’s delectable cuisine. I traveled to Malvan in November and here are some incredible moments from my trip.
Malvan is full of lush green sightings, and this one in particular was spotted on our way to a village on the outskirts of the town.
The one thing Malvan is popular for other than it’s beaches, is it delectable cuisine. Although it’s known for it’s seafood, the vegetarian fare is equally delicious and readily available. This is a vegetarian thali consisting of Malvani wade, Kaju usal and Solkadi.
Spectacular white-sand beaches add to the beauty of Malvan. There’s a beach at every few kilometers and if you are lucky you will come across beaches that are far off from the eyes of tourists and you can have the whole place for yourself.
I walked a lot when in Malvan, and this particular picture was taken at the Rock gardens. The colors here piqued my interest.
Homestays are easily the best way to experience this place, the warm hospitality, scrumptious home cooked meals and a homely environment stayed in my memory for a very long time.
This is the Vengurla beach, clicked from the fishing port on the other end. Doesn’t it look surreal?
In konkan, A Wadi is huge backyard for almost every house which is a large piece of land covered with Coconut, Beetle nut and Banana plantations. Many wadi’s extend upto the beach and are considered a great sense of pride among the locals.
Clear water like this made me believe that there still are places that remain untouched by irresponsible tourism.
Although being a vegetarian, I wandered through the fish auction and got back with some amazing pictures like this one! If you love seafood, head to Malvan.
For me a trip is incomplete without wandering through the local market. Malvan’s local market is a colorful and vibrant mix, you’ll get to buy fresh produce, gorge on seafood, buy handmade crafts and more than anything else, observe the way of life.
