The long stretch of virgin beaches makes Ganapatipule, a small town in the Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra, a great destination for beach lovers, peace-seekers, and pilgrims alike. The mangroves and coconut palms dotting the entire stretch of the beach present a beautiful view of the vicinity. The Swayambhu Ganpati Temple, on Ganapatipule Beach, is the cynosure that allures thousands of pilgrims to this village every year. The self-created monolith of Lord Ganesha was allegedly discovered 1,600 years ago.
Apart from the beaches and the Ganapati Temple, Ganpatipule has many tourist spots. The Raigad Fort and Raigad Lighthouse are must-see attractions. Water sports can be enjoyed between the months of November and May. Delicacies like ambapoli (dried mango) and phanaspoli (dried jackfruit), are worth tasting while you are there. The world-famous devgad hapus (a mango cultivar) originates from here. Modak, Lord Ganpati’s favorite food item is another delicious sweet dish recipe that you can’t possibly miss. Be sure to book one of these top Airbnb vacation rentals in Ganpatipule, so you can make the most of your stay.
