If the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan, mesmerized by the beauty of Kashmir, called it heaven on earth then one look at the beaches across the Konkan strip in Maharashtra might had evoked a response like Paradise on earth from him. Even a cursory look at the beautiful stretch of soft white sand beaches at Tarkarli is enough to enthrall anyone. Located in the Malvan area, Tarkarli is one of the most ideal spot to spend a weekend.

The most wonderful part about Tarkarli is the amount of variety that is available once you reach here. The choice ranges from a long stroll along pristine white sand (powder in fact) beaches to revisiting the past glory of Maratha bastion and forts. Also include to the list the Backwater boat water ride and Temples for the religious minded followed by sumptuous Konkani meals and what you are looking at is a fascinating journey into the heart of Konkan and the History of Maratha warriors. Besides, the 8 km long beach of Tarkali is also a perfect spot to see.

The locals are mostly Hindu fishermen. They are happy with daily fishing and consumption of their catch. The idea of storage and business has not yet polluted the minds of these simple folks. The revel in simple lifestyles and celebrate with gusto, the festivals such as 'Anganewadi and Bramhan Dev Jatra'. The months of August-September see the influx of Non-Resident Konkanis returning to their abode for celebrating the 'Ganesh Festival" and the 'Birth of Lord Ram'.

An archetypal scruffy Indian village, however, comes alive when the market is in full bloom. Fish and Seafood are the main ingredients which are sold every day. There are also a variety of cashew nuts, beetle nuts, Kokum powder and drinks and delicious Amla juice available in the market. Not to forget the variety of pickles available in the market (made from Seafood).
