Harihareshwar Beach

Harihareshwar Beach is almost always turbulent. The coast is rocky and the force of the waves considerable. It is pristine, about 3 kilometres long and guarded by Brahmagiri and Morgiri on either side. Since it is a little out of the way, not many tourists visit But a visit is worth it, especially at sunset, when the setting sun creates an out of this world atmosphere. It is an ideal way to end one’s day of sightseeing.

Harihareshwar is a town in Raigad district, in Maharashtra,India. It is surrounded by four hills named after lords Harihareshwar, Harshinachal, Bramhadri and Pushpadri. The river Savitri enters the Arabian Sea from the town of Harihareshwar. Towards the north of the town is the temple of Lord Harihareshwar, said to have been blessed by Lord Vishnu. Hence Harihareshwar is often referred to as Dev-ghar or "house of God".
