Kashid, around 20 km south of Alibag and on the way to Murud is definitely one of the best beaches on the Konkan coastal strip of Maharashtra. Its pure white sand and surf that breaks there is simply excellent. While other beaches around Kashid (like Alibag, Kihim, Murud) are more popular, they lack the pristine beauty of Kashid beach. Non vegetarians will have a good time here enjoying the fish and prawns. As expected, sunsets are very beautiful here. But what really captivates and fills you with awe are the magical sunrises! Since Kashid is on the west coast of India, the sun rises from the opposite side of the beach. The morning rays of the sun, as they fall on the surf breaking on the beach, glows with a golden colour. This needs to be seen to be believed.
