Sindhudurg Tourism, India: Places, Best Time & Travel Guides 2023

Nestled amidst the sea, Sindhudurg stands tall as a remarkable part of Maharashtra. This eternal place is an aide-memoire of royalty and grand history. Carved out of the erstwhile Ratnagiri District, Sindhudurg falls under Konkan division. The city is surrounded by Ratnagiri district on the north, Goa on the south, the Arabian Sea by the west, and crest of the Sahyadri Range by the east. 

Sindhudurg is made up of exotic beaches and royal forts. In ancient times, from the Sindhudurg fort to Vijaydurg fort, Sindhudurg’s importance lay significantly in the numerous sea forts and sky-high edifices.  Also, the astonishing Mangeli waterfall, Napapne waterfall, Shivapur waterfall, etc. are an epitome of the place’s natural beauty. 

When it comes to 
tourist attractions in Maharashtra, Sindhudurg has a whopping range of places to visit. Dating back to the 17th century, Maratha warrior King, Chhatrapati Shivaji established Sindhudurg fort over a rocky island location. The fort is flanked by the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea on respective sides. Also, the traditional and authentic side of Sindhudurg embellishes with Navadurga temple and India’s oldest Sai temple. With an impressive coastline, the city features several beaches, like the Tarkarli beach, Nivati beach, among others.

A city filled with grandiose and adventure, one will never run out of things to do in Sindhudurg. To quench the adrenaline rush, you can head to Tarkarli for scuba diving, Nivati for snorkelling, and other activities. Also, your nature-loving soul would be mesmerized by the safari organised amidst the dense forests of Sindhudurg. You will come across several wild animals like leopard, wild boar, mongoose, elephants, etc. 

However, the climate of Sindhudurg plays an important role in exploring the niceties. The climate is semi-tropical and it remains warm and humid throughout the year. The proximity to the Arabian sea results in heavy rainfall and proximity to Sahyadri brings cold and misty weather. The temperature usually drops to 15 degrees Celsius in winters and rises to 32 degrees Celsius in summers.

Vidya Embranthiri Maachli Farmstay
"On our way to Goa, we stayed in Maachli from Ganpatipule. The host here is Prathamesh and his father who definitely played the role of a great host. They very well took care of us. We were served with traditional Konkani food which was definitely the most authentic Konkani food that I have ever tasted. Cottages here are very well maintained and elegant. A lot of attention has been given by the owners on the detailing. Food is served in copper utensils that gives it a very nice and a traditional touch. Right next to the cottage is a stream flowing which was a great place for a natural fish spa. By the end of it, I definitely felt very relaxed and cam. Prathamesh took us on a small hike in the morning. He told us stories relating to the plantations and the surroundings. He even helped us identify some of the rare and exotic birds that we saw here. My kids enjoyed it as well. I will definitely come back for a stay again. "
Rajan Mukhopadhyay Maachli Farmstay
I and my partner had a very good experience there. The cottage looks stunning with nice and beautiful surrounding, we took many stunning pictures though. Inside was more lovely with properly arranged of the furniture, The bed and bathroom were so good. In the middle of the forest with greenery all over the places was just like in a dream. Love to sit outside enjoy our leisure time with the natural beauty of nature with a cup of chai...Highly recommend.

Ambar Shukla Maachli Farmstay
Staying in a hut was quite a different and exciting experience for me. The huts look awesome and the room and the washroom were super clean, we stay there for 2 nights it was a huge and special moment for us. We get to do some activities and fishing experience in nearby places and learn about their lifestyle. The amazing staff which provides us on-time service, the meals were so delicious served us in a traditional way we love and enjoyed it. Amazing scenery of the forest and cute creatures. Everything we took a snap to cherish our special memories.

Girindra Pillai Maachli Farmstay
I, my wife and our son stayed at Maachli for 3 nights in Oct 2016. it was the most calming and relaxing Holiday ever. Maachli has the right mix of comfort and the wild....with lovely Huts surrounded by acres of Plantation housing amazing flora and fauna. My son (13 years) is absolutely mesmerised by the stream and nightlife at Maachli. We woke up everyday to the pitter patter of dew drops falling on banana leaves....went for morning walk to the Lotus Lake (acres of lotuses)...had a sumptuous wholesome and oh so tasty breakfast..and then some natural pedicure at the was nice. Prathamesh took us on a nature trail one morning which was the icing on the cake..where we saw different bird species (esp the reclusive malabar pied hornbills)..and the old temple under an ancient tree...the whole experience is so beautiful. It was fun to have engaging conversations with Senior Samant kaka..who is so knowledgeable about the area and always ready for a good chat. The staff is very sweet and helpful. There are still so many things we wanted to do at Maachli...i am sure there is going to be a next time.
