Vengurla's Lighthouse

It is human to look out for identifiable signs when out on an excursion and the need remains even when the fishermen folks venture out in the sea.

The guiding force of a magnificent tower, the Vengurla Lighthouse located on a hill that stands tall above the jetty is hard to miss. The path to the Lighthouse, is through a long winding path of foliage and greenery.

The Lighthouse and staff quarters are perched right on the top of the hill. The flat plateau on the top of the hill provides a memorable view of the shore and beach below. It is awe inspiring to see the vast stretch of sea spread before you.

Vengurla's Jetty

The town of Vengurla used to be one of the busiest ports of the Western shores of the country. Times have changed and so have the fortunes of this once bustling port which now stands a mute spectator amidst the ruins of the old port.

The jetty built with cement and wood is still capable of berthing small boats. The light house placed right above the hill overlooking the jetty presents a royal image of the jetty.

It is also possible to lay eye upon the Goan shoreline and the Terekhol River. The busy port of the Maratha warriors, however, now lies in taters.

Vayangani Beach

A beach may attract a lot of tourists for its open sea attraction but when a beach like Vayangani attracts tourists it is not entirely for the sea shore but also for the enchanting location and the greenery that surrounds it.

The lush green mango, cashew, and Jack fruit trees cover entire beach stretch. Tender coconuts are available at throw away prices at the beach and sipping water from them in a total bliss of the beach is an experience not to be missed.

More than the sand stretch it is the greenery surrounding it that leads an exodus of tourists toward the Vayangani beach.

Shiroda Beach

Have you always wanted to get away from chaotic city life, even if just for a few days or maybe a weekend? How would it be to relax in the lap of nature, listen to the soothing rhythm of the ocean’s waves lapping at the beach, watch the birds lazily soar in the clear blue skies, tuck into a truly Konkani cuisine and gaze at the hills majestically guard Maharashtra’s long coastline? All this comes to life at Shiroda.

 

With the Arabian Sea to the west and the rough and tough mountain ranges of the Sahaydri to the east, Shiroda is located at the southernmost end of the Sindhudurg district and is a quiet haven with none of the usual tourists’ clamour. It is about 20 kilometers from both Vengurla and Sawantwadi and has an abundance of coconut trees that give the region its characteristic flavour. The well-known Marathi laureate and Dnyanpeeth Award winner V S Khandekar had once served at Shiroda as a high school teacher. Shiroda has therefore been the birthplace of a lot of his creative writing.

 

The village had also played a vital role during India’s freedom movement. At the same time as Mahatma Gandhi had initiated his salt march from Dandi in Gujarat to oppose the British-levied salt tax, a similar movement had been flagged off from Shiroda which has many ‘mithagaras’ where salt is produced. This was carried out under the active leadership of Acharya Dharmanand Kosambi and Achary Javadekar, Dr. Bhagwat, Achyutrao Patwardhan and Appasaheb Patwardhan (Konkan Gandhi) were among the revolutionaries who had supported this act of defiance. On May 12, 1930 the British carried out a lathi charge on these freedom fighters and arrested almost 90 of them.

 

This historical link apart, Shiroda is blessed with unparallel natural beauty. The beach has cypress trees on one side and the sea on the other. Early morning hours and the time of sunset are the most mesmerising at this place. Goa is just 7 kilometers from here but Shiroda has its own unique culture with none of the Goan influence. The bonus of course is the Konkani food with spicy curries made with a coconut base and the various fish items prepared out of the fresh catch unloaded on the beach each morning. Shiroda is about 530 kilometers from Mumbai and the nearest airport is at Dabolim in Goa.

Sargeshwar Shiva Temple

 

The Sagreshwar beach also houses the quaint and rustic Sagareshwar temple of Lord Shiva. The temple has been built with stones and imparts a grand look which is in total contrast to the approachable and submissive sea waves that splash the temple footsteps.

The beach surrounding the temple has been carefully crafted and tended in order to grow a blooming courtyard full of colorful variety of flowers. The courtyard also presents a massive Deepstambh right at the entrance of the temple and of course the ever vigilant Nandi the Bull at the entrance of the Lord’s abode.

Sargeshwar Beach

The main attractions at Vengurla are undoubtedly the amazingly clean stretches of white sand beaches. The Sagareshwar beach, almost at a distance of 4 km from the Bus stop, is another gorgeous feather in the cap of Vengurla. The beach can be approached various directions but the recommendation is to rush towards the sea through the small shrubs along the road and feel the soft talcum sand caress the feet before the plunge into the sea.

 

The best part is that the beach is largely unspoilt and is deserted. The sea is calm and choppy at the best and is extremely safe for a dip.

Redi Ganapati Mandir

Redi is a quaint little coastal village that belongs to the district of Sindhudurg in Maharashtra. Originally known as Redipattanam, Redi is located very close to the shores of the majestic Arabian Sea and is dotted with plenty of cashew and coconut trees.

The Village belongs to the Vengurla Talkua and was a significant sea port during the earlier times. Redi has now evolved into a tourist hub because of its long virgin and unspoiled beaches alongside archaic historic monuments like the Yashwantgad Fort. Redi is merely 566 km away from Mumbai and can be easily reached.

The Ganapati temple of Redi is located approximately 30 km from Vengurla, in the small villiage of Redi. The town in which this temple is situated contains manganese mines and the Ganpati idol was found in one of the mines near Rewati port in 1976.[citation needed] The Ganpati idol is in a sitting position and approximately 15 meters in height. There is a small rocky beach behind the temple.

Redi Ganesh Vengurla In Sindhudurg It's foundation story is a follows: On April 18th, 1976 one truck-driver, Sadanand Nagesh Kambali parked his truck at a particular place. This truck used to ply from Reddi's (iron & minerals) mine to harbour. That truck -driver slept there and he had a dream. In dream, God Ganesha gave him divine appearance and told him to dig at the very same place, since He(God) is residing there. He had great faith in Lord Ganesha. As per his dream, he started digging there and to the astonishment of all the villagers, there appeared two-handed idol of Lord Ganesha, carved in solid rock. The date was 1st May 1976. After seeking omen from Gram–Devata (Village deity), it was decided to build a temple at the very spot and establish this deity. After few days, in the same area they excavated a big idol of mouse, which is a traditional vehicle of Ganesha. These idols are very pretty and graceful. Today one. can visit beautifully built temple and get delighted by taking "Darshan" of the adorable deity.
