Kondivali Beach

Kondivali Beach is located ~5 kms from Shrivardhan and is known for water sport adventure activities available here. Choices include surfing, paragliding on surf, and motor boat rides.

If the beaches along Srivardhan are marvelous then the adventure sports available at the Kondvil beach are out of this world. Situated at almost 4-5 km from Srivardhan the Kondvil beach simply refuses to be faithful to the general definition of a beach.

The long soft white sand beach has been remarkably spruced up to realise the dreams of every Water Sports adventure buff. Kondvil beach is just the option if you are wondering how it feels to cut the waves at 100 mile an hour or Para glide on the surf or even surfing on the clear water waves of Kondvil. The adventure doesn’t start at the beach actually, one has the option of trekking down the lovely cliffs of Shriwardhan.

If so inclined, it is possible to trek to Kondvil Beach down from the cliffs of Shrivardhan. This is an especially fun activity on a cool day.
