Always wanted to take that exotic vacation for the beautiful beaches it’s got? Our very own Versova beach is now worth staying back in Mumbai for that coveted beach vacay!
What Is It?
After 85 weeks of cleaning up, the dirtiest beach of Mumbai has now been transformed into one of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches the city has. Afroz Shah, a Mumbai-based lawyer who initiated the drive, managed to make it a mass initiative. It started off with just two people, and moved on to garnering over 500 Versova residents who took to beach-cleaning over the weekends.
It is said that over 5 million kilograms of waste has been collected over the weeks, with some areas of the beach having 5 feet of filth! Twiteratti took to numerous tweets and images of the new avatar of this Mumbai beach.
And why not; what you see now is a 2.7 km stretch of beautiful land. Clean golden sands lead to pristine turquoise waters at this beach. With around 300 coconut trees planted earlier this year, the place looks phenomenal and gives holiday vibes.
You could stride along the shore line or just inhale some fresh air and let the waves splash into your feet. The clean beach makes you want to sit by the shore and seep in all the salty goodness, unlike what one felt while visiting the Versova beach, until two years ago.
