किहिम बीच हे मुंबई जवळच्या वीकेंड गेटवे डेस्टिनेशन्सपैकी एक आहे आणि एका दिवसाच्या ट्रिपमध्ये देखील कव्हर केले जाऊ शकते. मांडवा जेटीसाठी हा सर्वात जवळचा समुद्रकिनारा आहे. अनेक मुंबईकर या ठिकाणी मौजमजेसाठी आणि राइड्ससाठी भेट देतात. हे अलिबाग तहसील जिल्ह्याच्या रायगड, महाराष्ट्र, भारताचे एक समतुल्य आहे.

Our very first destination was Kihim beach. It was a pleasant and peaceful beach, with not much crowd on it.

आमचे पहिले डेस्टिनेशन किहिम बीच होते. तो एक आल्हाददायक आणि शांत समुद्रकिनारा होता, त्यावर फारशी गर्दी नव्हती.

Personal Experience

We visit this place while our Mumbai to Kashid bike ride. We started from mumbai. This time we chose the sea route with Roro. Mumbai to Mandwa. It takes only one hour to reach Mandwa.

आम्ही आमच्या मुंबई ते काशीद बाईक दरम्यान या ठिकाणी भेट दिली होती. आम्ही मुंबईपासून सुरुवात केली. यावेळी आम्ही रोरोने जाण्याचे ठरवले आणी त्यासाठी सागरी मार्ग निवडला. मुंबई ते मांडवा. आम्हाला मांडव्याला पोहोचायला फक्त एक तास लागला.

After reaching mandwa we did some breakfast and move towards Alibaug while going we saw a distraction board Kihim was just 3 km from the main road. So we decided to visit this beach. It’s an instant decision. We go through a small narrow road towards kihim beach.Its fill like mini Goa.

मांडव्याला पोहोचल्यावर थोडा नाश्ता केला आणि अलिबागच्या दिशेने निघालो तेव्हा आम्हाला एक बोर्ड दिसला किहिम मुख्य रस्त्यापासून फक्त 3 किमी अंतरावर आहे. त्यामुळे आम्ही या बीचला भेट देण्याचे ठरवले. किहिम बीचच्या दिशेने निघताच एका छोट्या अरुंद रस्त्यावरून जाव लागले. तो रस्ता मिनी गोव्यासारखा वाटत होता.
