Undoubtedly this is one of the best beaches in Maharashtra. A long drive along the 7 km long coast makes any other beach appear to be a compromise. Alongside the long beach are villages Harnai – Murud- Karde. Karde is towards the South end of the beach. The speciality of this place is that homestays are right on the beach. Thus sitting in verandah you can hear roar of the sea. Highly recommended for a relaxed holiday. You can see Dolphins in the sea in the months of Dec and Jan, while sitting on the beach; as they come real close.
Also see Murud - Harnai as it is very close to Karde(approx. 4 km).
