One of the most outstanding stretches of Maharashtra’s coastline. Long and wide (around 150m) and flat. Wide enough to drive in even trucks and trailers. The beach has a certain vibe and makes it a very special beach for all.
Distance: 48 km from Mangaon
Best time to visit:
Monsoon and Winter. Aug – Feb will be great. Its warm but pleasant here in Apr to June.
What to see:
A vast coastline as far as your eyes can see.
The place is surely meant for Sunset if it’s not monsoon.
You can drive/ride your car/bike on this wide flat beach.
The beach is so long and wide that no matter what day it is, you will have a large portion of the beach for yourself.
The mountains on the right side provide a beautiful landscape photo op.
As the sand is totally a flat ground, like most of the Beaches in Maharashtra. Play a number of sports including football here.
There is a Golden Ganesh temple on the start of the main road. Ask the locals about the stolen idol story.
An early morning stroll here with your special someone with no footwear would be one of the most romantic thing to do.
Its a good beach for photography and pre-wedding shoots.

Water sports. Almost every water sport you will find in Goa is here and at a much cheaper rate. Kindly consider trying water sports at this beach. Apart from fishing and farming, these water sports are the only means of earning for the youth. One must do these at such places. Nagaon beach again is one such place where you should consider water sports.
Have food at a local place or at a Home stay.
There is a Bank of India ATM near the post office. It’s not much far. Fuel stations are nearby on the State Highways.
No need to carry water or food. There is everything here.
This is a beach. Carry sunscreen.
Most probably you would be here for picnic or late-night party. No matter how drunk or lazy you are, kindly consider the environment and DO NOT throw any kind of garbage. Carry it along with you. Dispose when you find dustbins.
Many options here that suit every budget and within walking distance from the beach. If its not a special holiday, you surely need not book anything in advance unless you really want to have something in particular.
