Vaibhavwadi

Vaibhavwadi taluka is a taluka in Kankavli subdivision of Sindhudurg district in the Indian state of Maharashtra.

It was earlier a small market town by the name Vabhwe. In the early 1980s it was accorded the status of tehsil under the new district Sindhudurg. Located to the north-east of Kankavali, Vaibhavwadi is off National Highway 66 (Old National Highway 17) and is on the district's eastern border with Kolhapur District. Nandgaon is 22 km south.

A strong influence of Kolhapuri and Konkani civilizations is prevalent in the area. The prime attraction here is some ancient caves amid dense forest and mountains. Dating back to the period of the Pandavas, these caves are noted for their magnificent carvings.

Vaibhavwadi Road Railway Station, managed by the Konkan Railways, serves the area.
