The small fishing town of Malvan has everything you want from a coastal holiday—beaches, water sports, medieval forts, and most importantly, excellent seafood.
► Take a ferry from Malvan to the famous Sindhudurg Fort built by Chattrapathi Shivaji.
► Scuba dive or snorkel in the Malvan waters and experience under-water life of the Arabian sea.
► Stay with the Samant family in a cottage surrounded by spice, coconut, banana, and beetle nut plantation at Maachli. Go to a heritage village, learn the nuances of Konkani cuisine, take farming lessons, or simply appreciate nature at this eco-friendly homestay.
