with long stretch of white sands and
coconut, mango, jackfruit, and cashew
trees covering hills, Vengurla lies to the
south of Maharashtrian beach. One would
long to visit these long stretches of
white sands covering Vengurla Beach again
and again. The region Vengurla has two
well known temples one is Shri Devi Sateri
temple and another one is Rameshwar Mandir.
Tourists can also visit the Vengurla rocks
also known as Burnt Island, which is quite
near to the beach. It is often mentioned
in the history books as a centre for trade
settlement. Between 1664 and 1812 the
Vengurla was a target of attack and was
twice burnt to ground. Thickly covered
with palm trees this Burnt Island is an
ideal place to rest in peace.
Malvan is a part of the mainland is almost
hidden by palm trees. There are two forts
in Malvan – Sindhudurg Fort and Padmagad
Fort. Earlier there was an underground
tunnel joining these forts. Like Vengurla,
Malvan was also a trading centre.
Today the place Malvan is very famous for
its salt pans and Chinese clay pottery.
The mouthwatering cuisine of Malvan is
quite different from the Konkan food.
