Introduction: Guhagar beach is one of the famous beach in Konkan. Also one of the closest beach to reach from Chiplun. During holidays this is the one of the busiest beach. Lot of water sports activities are done over here.
The thing which I love the most about the beach is no matter where you end up, there’s always lots of activity surrounding you. Personally I like to get in sea water first and enjoy the sea waves. But you also make sure care that you don’t go too deep in the water. It depends how you want to relax at Guhagar beach, there are some sections that tend to be a little calmer than other.
You can also grab chair from hotels around beaches and relax. The beautiful things about Guhagar beach is that no matter whatever you do at the beach, you are bound to have a good time.
If you planning for a trip, my suggestion would be first make sure you have book the hotel, if you are planning to stay at Guhagar. Because during vacations all hotels are booked for most of the days. If you are enough lucky you will still get to manage a rest house run by the locals.
Sea food is great here, you can get delicious food at beach front hotels. There are many good hotel and restaurants available for sea food lovers. But one of the best Non Veg sea food you will get in Hotel Annapurna. You will love to eat delicious cuisine from list of versatile menus. Kolambi masala, bangda fry and surmai masala are the most famous dishes. The spicy Konkani sea food dishes are delicious, also you can go for chicken thali, mutton thali or fish thali. Don’t forget to have solkadi which is great drink after having meal. Hotel Annapuran is just about 10 – 15 minutes from the beach. But during vacations hotel Annapurna is fully booked. So you need to reserve your table first.
Hotel Annapurna also provide good luxurious rooms for stay. So make your booking before arriving at guhagar.
