Diveagar Beach can easily rival any beach on the west coast of India for its clear waters, white sand & serenity. Diveagar is situated approximately 200 km from Mumbai & 150 km from Pune. Reaching Diveagar is quite easy, take a right turn from Mangaon on the Mumbai-Goa highway, from here its a one-hour drive to Diveagar.

Diveagar is just like any other village on the Konkan coast but it gained overnight fame upon the discovery of Ganesh idol made of pure gold in one of the Supari Baghs (Garden) in the village.

The beach is a real revelation, a 6 km long stretch with white sand & clear water. At one end of the beach is a fishing settlement while the other end offers a sanctuary to the migratory seagulls feasting in the creek waters.

The beach has a lot of Suru trees, which are common to coastal Maharashtra. The access to the beach has a dense cover of Belu trees, which are very uncommon sight on this coast. Diveagar has numerous households offering accommodation for as low as Rs.300-400 per day. The local cuisines are worth exploring & better enjoy eating it as no other options are available.

Diveagar is an ideal weekend getaway for anyone. Dont expect any luxury hotels & typical city eating joints here but be prepared to be surprised by the simplicity & calmness offered by this place.
