Five best beaches in India that are not in Goa
Are you a beach baby whose day naturally gets 10 times better at the thought of waves, the warm sand and a perfect afternoon idling by the shack?
Well, if you nodded your head in agreement to all of the above, how about you squeeze some time out from your schedule to take a quick vacation on the beach?
Confused about which beach to go? Don’t act in haste by choosing the usual hunts- Baga or otherwise.
Let’s help you decide.
1. Radhanagar Beach, Andaman and Nicobar Islands: Once votes Asia’s best beach by TIME Magazine, Radhanagar Beach is situated on Havelock Island and the beach is renowned for its white sand and calm, still water
2. Varkala Beach, Kerala: Varkala Beach constitutes a long winding stretch of cliff that extends over the Arabian Sea. Along the length of the cliff, a paved footpath runs simultaneously bordered by coconut palms, quaint shops, beach shacks and hotels. And nestled at the bottom of the cliff is a long stretch of sparkling beach that is sure to take your breath away.
3. Rishikonda Beach, Andhra Pradesh: Rishikonda Becah lies just 8 km from Vizag and fulfils the top 3 requirements by any traveller- beaches, hills and loads of adventure activities.
4. Tarkarli Beach, Maharashtra: The area around Tarkarli beach, in southern Maharashtra, has one of the best coral reefs in India. Relatively untouched by development, this beach is not on the tourist trail and still retains a village feel complete with homestay accommodations right on the beach
5. Gokarna Beach, Karnataka: Gokarna is a small and remote holy town in northern Karnataka, with four of India’s most secluded and pristine beaches nestled nearby. Go there to get a feel for what Goa was like in its heyday.
