Secret Beaches in India

By Lillian Harris

Introduction:

Indian beaches always have been one of the most popular tourist destinations for both domestic and foreign tourists. These beaches with panoramic views become a delightful place during this period. Although there is no shortage of attractive beaches in India, today we are going to take a tour of some concealed beaches from the famous beaches of the country, which you can plan by looking at your proximity.

 

Top 8 Secret Beaches In India:

You will get a wonderful view of many exotic beaches spread along the coastline of India. These beaches are destinations that provide spectacular views and memorable experiences. Marina Beach, Anjuna Beach, Andaman Island, Kovalam Beach, Dona Paula Beach, Lakshadweep, etc. are some of the most visited beaches in India. But if you want to visit low tourist and peaceful beaches look for the secret beaches in India.

 

  1. Chakratirth Beach, Diu:

The large Chakratirtha beach has a small “appendage” to the west of the city walls. In many ways, it can be considered the most attractive beach in Diu. The main thing is that it is not usually crowded and is perfect for a relaxing beach vacation.

This beach provides all the facilities for you to spend the holidays. Here you can see the ancient Shiva temple along with the hilly and beautiful forest area and the sea. It can be called a spectacular tourist destination of Western India.

Things To Do:

  • If you like walking on the coast then Chakratirtha beach is the best for you. On the Chakratirtha beach, you can also enjoy swimming and surfing, and parasailing.
  • The Arabian Sea lies in front of Diu, so a boat tour must be done here. Here you can see some beautiful Portuguese structures. The walls of this structure are now in ruins but still tell the story of its history.
  • This place is also called Goa’s alternative. Diu has its own charm. The roads here are not very crowded. The easiest way to see this beautiful city is by bicycle. You can fill the entire city of Diu in your eyes by getting off the Bundar Road.
  • As the influence of Portuguese culture is seen in the city of Diu, the food here is also prepared in Portuguese way. Portuguese seafood is found in the seafood of the Diu.
  • Nadia caves are one of the untouched treasures of Diu. Do visit these caves at the outer edge of the city. It is better to come here during the daytime because during this time the rays of the sun enter the cave and offer a magical view among the stones, which will be fortunate for you to capture in your camera.

  1. Chowpatty Beach, Mumbai:

Chowpatty Beach is located on top of Marine Drive Boulevard in Mumbai. In the evenings and weekends, many townspeople gather here. People do not come to the beach to swim and dub, but to walk along the coast, sit on the sand, eat kulfi and puri, or just chat while the children are a pony or Fakis ride the wheel.

Things To Do:

  • Mumbai is known for many things and one of these things is the street food here. From Chowpatty to the sea lines, you can taste all kinds of local street food. Do not forget to taste Sev Puri and Bhelpuri here.
  • Drinking coconut water, while watching the waves of the sea at sunset, relaxes the mind.

 

  1. Mandrem Beach, North Goa:

On the far side of the bay, which houses the famous Aisham Beach, is another spectacular and almost empty beach leading to Arambol. This is Mandrem Beach – the last strip of beach sand in the northern part of Goa that has not deteriorated from civilization. Sea turtles lay their eggs in the sand of a deserted beach, and in the sky, you can see a white-bellied eagle. The eagle’s nest grows right there in the crown of the casuarina. Here is his last “stronghold” in North Goa.

Things To Do:

  • Mandrem Beach is known for a lot of exciting water sports and adventure sports. -Sailing, surfing, hot air balloon, etc.
  • The most comfortable moment for many travelers to enjoy the beauty of the beach. There are many comfortable beach lounge chairs to sit on. Be sure to take your chair to the beach! Sitting under the umbrella of the chair for a while and watching the vastness of the sea you can get lost in the middle of the past.

 

  1. Gopalpur, South Odisha:

Once the city of Gopalpur was a very busy place. Nowadays, it is crowded mainly during festivals and holidays. The rest of the time, it is a large village with a “collection” of coastal hotels, which are populated for fishing by some backpackers and fishermen off the coast of Gopalpur. It is also possible that you will have to sunbathe on the sand of the beach in spectacular isolation. Coconut buggies, half-asleep lagoons, and small coves are strewn with a long strip of sand. A fresh breeze is constantly blowing from the sea. Gopalpur is a very good place to visit.

Things To Do:

  • Tourists can participate in various types of games such as horse riding, cruising, body massage, and more.
  • The best thing to do while visiting this beach is to watch the sunset, which fills your Rome with a new energy and forces nature to consider it paramount.
  • Here you will be able to enjoy royal riding on horseback. You can also take pictures like horseback riding, flame, or other travelers.

  1. Ullal Beach, Karnataka:

If you want to relax for a few hours from the hustle and bustle of the city, go to Ullal village, which stretches for several kilometers on a long sandy beach of the same name with cedar trees. Wall beach is a popular place to visit, especially in the evening, when the residents of Mangalore visit here to enjoy the sunset. Keep in mind that there are very deep currents in the coastal waters and swimming here is difficult and sometimes unsafe. So while this is one of the secret beaches, it also means people may not see you if you get into trouble in the water. Summer Sands Beach Resort is better for walking in the pool. The pool is located near the beach.

Things To Do:

  • This is the best beach to walk to. The white sandy beach is a very delight for a walk.
  • Near the sandy beach, you can see green cedar trees. There are suitable opportunities for rest. This green forest is full of fresh air. From this place, you can enjoy the wonderful views of the sea-waves. The air coming from the sea will calm your tired heart. You can forget about the robot-life of the city as well as your personal problems.
  • With sand, you can do many things, be it different types of sand art or write names in it. Making small sandcastles with sand on the beach, making dolls are the favorite toys of small children.

 

  1. Kudle Beach, Karnataka:

Along the one-kilometer-long coastline of Kudle Beach, a pair of hills with steep slopes, about a dozen restaurants, and a private hotel are lined. It is the longest and widest of the Gokarna beaches and is a great place for surfing, although it can be dangerous in the water due to deep deep currents. This is one of the beautiful beaches in Karnataka.

Things To Do:

  • This is the best place for surfing and other water sports. You can enjoy all kinds of water sports here.
  • If possible, visit the full moon day. It is impossible to describe in words the heavenly scene washed away by the light of the full moon setting on a lonely beach.
  • The beach means the waves of the sea! You can also ride a beach boat on the sea surface, such as riding a beach bike or parasailing.

    I love secret beaches as they are very clean and less crowded. Loved to see the list of wonderful beaches in India. I have been to Ullal Beach near Mangalore during my Karnataka road trip and it was truly stunning. Gopalpur Beach in Orissa too looks interesting and next time I would plan for it.

    I love beaches that are up against a mountainside…so I would probably say my favorite was Gopalpur (since it had that farming hill near it). Side note…i couldn’t tell which photos were for which listings. I assume the photo is below the text description. was i right?

    We lived for over a year in the Philippines and our favorite thing about it was the beaches and the islands. India’s beaches can definitely compare to the sights we have seen there. Love the offbeat “secret” nature of these ones too. Kudle and Paradise Beach would be our picks!

    Except Diu and Orissa, I have been to all these beaches. And I agree that each one of them are so pretty. I especially loved Paradise beach in Pondicherry. Even though it was not ideal for swimming it still was so beautiful.

    I have been to Chowpatty Beach in Mumbai. Pondicherry I went a long time back. But now, I would like to go for this beach and more things there. Diu is also on my list. Goa, I would like to see the turtles. This sounds like my kind of thing.

    This is a wonderful list of beaches and with all the details hope to check out some of them during my next visit. It’s true the most popular beaches can get very crowded and I have been to some of them like Marina beach. My hometown in Kerala also has a number of small beaches where one can just relax and enjoy the natural surroundings. Great share!

    We were so sorry we missed the beaches on our visit to India. So much great architecture and history kept us away from the water. But I now see there are lots of great options all along the coast and not just in Goa. My pick would probably be a spot like Paradise Beach with low tourist volumes. And the chance to see dophins!

    Wow, I love the concept of a secret beach! I live in Florida and all our beaches get so overcrowded on the weekends, so I’m sure an escape like this would be lovely. Would love to visit Kudle Beach especially, the blue water is gorgeous!

    Good list of beaches here and thanks for the tips on what there is to do at the beach (always need a good snack bar nearby). I don’t know the coastline that well as I haven’t researched into this part of India yet (I hope to make my first visit to India in the next year or two) but I have heard that the sunsets can be a truly amazing experience near Goa. I don’t mind which beach to hit up, but my wife, as long as they are big, golden and sandy then she is happy. 🙂
