I love the trips which are just planned few days back and we are set to go. Yes this trip is one of them. This was our journey on bikes. Just two bikes and yes three friends. Similar thing happened and one of my friend called me up and asked are you ready for a trip to Konkan. Yes, it was a One Day Trip but a lot of visits to places and a memorable one indeed. This trip is not a normal trip but a road trip. We three best buddies from school had decided on the last one day prior to the trip that it is time to go.
So sudden plan was made and it was time to go the the Beaches in Konkan. So I was suggesting my friends that let us visit the beaches which I have never visited. So it is always fun to explore new places in life. The best part is to have your best buddies with you throughout the journey. One of my friend said that hey lets go to a beach because I am fed up of my exams and just want to go inside the water. Well people have custom requirements to enjoy travel.
So we thought that let us make his wish complete and also it will be a day off from my work. Yes I am an entrepreneur and I work 7 days a week. But this gives you a luxury of going whenever you want to go out with friends to relax and have a good time. So we had made the plan to go in the early morning. So we were all set for our road trip to Konkan from Pune to visit the above three beaches. Well we had planned only for one beach which was Varsoli. 🙂
We started our journey from Pune, we decided to meet at a Petrol Pump, fueled up our bikes and started our journey in Morning at around 7am. Getting up early and that too for a trip is always exciting. Best part in a road trip is that you can stop whenever you want and can relax and then again resume the ride. We started going towards Lonavla. We reached Lonavla and stopped there for breakfast. We had our favourite breakfast and we halted there for half hour.
Then we started our journey towards Alibaug. Yes all these beaches are near Alibaug, so we headed our journey towards the first beach, Varsoli beach. It was a Sunday and we did got a bit traffic on the National Highway but the journey was just amazing. We reached Varsoli beach. Reaching there in Konkan roads is a great journey. There are trees on both sides of the road. It is cool to drive in such roads. We reached the beach and it was already noon.

Watching the sea after a long time gives you a peace of mind. It was a nice time on beach in the afternoon, though we got inside the water for a swim. Too much fun for too much time. Then it was time for some nice lunch near the Varsoli beach. We enjoyed the famous delicious “Solkadhi”. It is a special food delicacy in Konkan region. If you are in konkan and if you did`nt tasted it then you did not visited Konkan 🙂 Well many times we were thrilled to see the beautiful nature nearby. It was a great experience altogether.
We thought of exploring other places which we have never visited. So we decided to go to Nagaon Beach. It is near by, around 10.5km away from the Varsoli Beach. Though we had a half hour bike ride from there. This road is the best, because you get to see the sea on the right hand side and it is a lovely place to visit. Though we already had fun in getting into the water in the Varsoli beach. There was nice scenery around the Nagaon beach. So we clicked few pictures there. There was horse ride and all on the beach.
It was already around 4.30pm and we thought that we should watch the sunset somewhere else. So we thought of going to another destination. We thought of going to the famous Kashid beach. We knew that it will be a crowded place, but were sure that the sunset would be more beautiful from that beach. So we started our bikes and went to the Kashid beach which is just 27.6km. Yes it was around a 1 hour ride to the beach and it was time for the sunset. We reached at the right time. Cool breeze flowing and it was just awesome.
Though seeing the setting sun is always a pleasure from the beach with your friends. This made us more and more happy that we had reached the last destination of our tour. Though it was getting darker and darker. Also there are no street lights on route till the highway. So we had to leave as soon as the sun sets. Though we had enjoyed the Coconut water and had breakfast at the beach. It was time to go back to Pune and the ride would be long, as we knew that to drive slow in the dark is a challenge.
We started our return journey, it was dark and also thanks to the GPS connectivity which guided us to the highway. Though it was an interesting journey as trips help us to explore and we get to learn a lot of things. So we traveled through the highway. Finally we reached Lonavla had had a halt for dinner. Then we headed to Pune. Yes it was midnight till we reached home. It was a full day trip and we all enjoyed a lot. Mainly when you have school friends with you, certainly you have lots to discuss, talk and you don`t get to know when the journey gets over.
I thoroughly enjoyed this trip and always eager to go to Konkan for the next trip. Thanks for reading and let us know your experience in Konkan in the comments below.
