Loved the cuisine....Malvan is superb with Tarkali , Devbag and Chivala beach and Sindhudurg fort.

I am from konkan. Its the land of my ancestors. It hurts to see the beautiful coastline getting littered by plastic. mostly thrown by unmindful visitors. The sea is our God. and we are throwing trash in it. Visit murud,diveagar, alibaugh, karde, devrukh, you will notice plastic bottles, plastic straws, plastic bags, chocolate wrappers, wafer packets and loads of them in the sand. The local authorities should collect heavy tax from visitors and use it to clean the beaches. Same is case with all tourist destinations in our country. People spit, throw waste, litter happily. We are as happy as a pig in dirt. I am ashamed. We are patriotic only on paper. we don't respect our motherland. We make her dirty and put all the blame on the government. We are robbing nature and giving nothing back. I remember the clean mumbai in seventies. I was very young then. Now the entire city is a ' gutter'. We don't deserve to be citizens of a great nation like ours. Please take a vow not to litter. Take back your trash with you. and dispose it responsibly. Teach your children the same.

Konkan is one of the most beautiful places on earth. From green mountains to fishy rivers, you will find everything in this God-gifted region. Most importantly, Konkani people are so kind in nature and the way they treat you when you visit their region is exceptional. They always make you feel that you are a guest who are visiting their own home. An array of cuisines are available here for foodies. Nature lover can enjoy clean beaches, beautiful scenery and rich wildlife.

If you want to have a unique experience, Konkan is the right place.
