Ganapatipule is famous for its Ganesha temple. The state tourism dept has played great role in promoting this place. The beach here is looks inviting with white sands but is risky. There are ups and downs in the sand mass; and therefore it is not advisable to go on this beach.
All beach lovers can head towards the beautiful beach in nearby village Malgund; in case you are staying at Ganapatipule plan to go to Malgund beach instead. As is the case with any temple town; itís kind of noisy and messy and one should not expect peace and tranquility here. Also service given is pretty much below average.
We recommend that if you wish to visit this place; see the temple and stay at Velneshwar (50 km approx). This would help you enjoy best of tourism and pilgrimage else you may stay at Ratnagiri.
