Located on the rugged Konkan coastline, Murud is a small town about 11km from Dapoli. A long, scenic stretch of a beach with swaying palms and a beautiful, ancient Durga Devi temple are its primary attractions. It is also known as Murud – Harnai.
Murud has a lot of beach resorts amidst the coconut plantations. Delicious, fresh seafood includes the likes of Pomfret, Kingfish (Surmai) and Prawns straight from the Arabian Sea. You can also enjoy pure vegetarian, home-made Konkani cuisine at some of the houses nearby. The beach itself with its soft sand and wide expanses is well suited for walking, jogging or simply freaking out. You will probably be able to watch the white-bellied sea eagle, white-backed vultures, and seagulls. Olive Ridley sea turtles are also spotted here.
Maharshi Dhondo Keshav Karve, who established the first Indian University for women (SNDT), hailed from Murud. He was awarded the Bharat Ratna in 1958. You can also visit the museum which is dedicated to this great man.
A very quiet beach, highly attractive for meditation, Harnai beach is renowned as the gateway romantic beach in Harnai. The inflows of the tourists are growing multitudes year by year in this unspoiled beauty of nature.
This beach is famed for its clean softy shores and safe waters for fun-filled activities as well as for swimming. The palm trees lined up adds a scenic natural greenish background to the calm beach. It is really an experience spending few hours to few days in the cool ambiance of a beach. This is a weekend destination for many of the Mumbai and Pune populace to escape from the busy city life.
