As every year, this year also I couldn’t plan the year end long vacation for my family. But I managed to arrange a quick trip along with my wife. We decided to visit Alibaug which is just 3-4 hours drive from Mumbai or 1 hour ferry ride away from Gateway of India till Mandwa harbour or 1.5 hours from Baucha Dakka harbour near Dockyard Road till Rewas harbour. From both the harbours, further one hour bus or auto-rickshaw journey is required to reach Alibaug. Well, this was really quick one,  we finalised the ferry mode so that our kids could enjoy the ferry ride. Our journey began from the Gateway of India.

Alibaug is a small town in Raigad district of Maharashtra, India. This town is located in western coast with beaches spread across its area. There are some well known and most visited beaches such as Alibaug Beach, Kihim Beach, Akshi Beach, Thal Beach, Kashid Beach, Nagaon Beach and Revdanda Beach. The main attractions are Kolaba Fort, Agarkot Fort and Korlai Fort. The Birla temple of Salav village is also closer from Alibaug, approximately around 22 kms.
