Kihim - Alibaug :- Kihim is situated in Raigad district. An ideal beach renowned for natural charm & beauty. Just 120 kms. away from Mumbai, Kihim is an exclusive beach laced with lush coconut trees. The inviting part of it is that Kihim is entirely undiscovered and unpolluted. For the nature lover, Kihim has a lot to offer: woods brimming with wild flowers and rare butterflies and birds.
At Kihim, you have an unconventional 'Tent Holiday' with modern facilities attached. The journey to these two destinations is as wonderful an experience as the beaches, if one travels by ferry. The boat journey of more than an hour from Bhaucha Dhakka or Ferry Warf to Rewas Jetty is simply exhilarating.There are now catamarans from Gateway of India which touch Rewas in 30 minutes flat but don't provide the same romance as that of the ferry. Of course, one can travel by road but it is not the same and is too time consuming. Rewas Jetty is just six km from Kihim. Both these places have turned into a weekend retreats for the rich and the famous who have their bungalows along the beach and in the interiors.
The proximity to the city is the main asset of the beaches and tourists throng them in large numbers. In fact, much of Alibaug's charm has been lost due to the presence of too many people. On Sunday, Alibaug resembles Juhu beach but with greater scenic beauty. Accommodation is no problem as there are many resorts
