Situated in Malad West, the Marve Beach is a beautiful beach by the Arabian Sea. The beach isn’t very long, but it is clean and a pleasure to visit in early mornings. The beach is very close to the INS Hamla Camp, therefore, if you visit the beach in the morning, you can see the Hampa Camp jawans training on the beach.
The Marve beach is also known for the Koli fishermen, who fish close to the beach and bring their fishes on the shore to be sent to Mumbai’s markets. The beach can be a quiet getaway, but the beach is rather narrow and getting in the waters is not advisable due to the swift current and mud that sinks fast.
The Marve beach is about seven kilometres from the western suburbs of Malad. The beach gives you a stunning view of the Arabian Sea and the surrounding hills. You can come here in the evenings too, to watch the sunset in the Arabian Sea.
