Make A Stop At These Stunning Beaches On Your Next Mumbai-Goa Road Trip

The number of times we have planned a trip to Goa is countless at this point. But if your plan is succeeding, then try to arrange a Mumbai-Goa road trip if you are a Mumbaikar or live somewhere nearby. Goa is indeed a piece of paradise, but the journey from Mumbai to Goa is a delight itself. You are surely in for a treat if you are traveling the destination by road. The almost 600 km drive takes around 12-14 hours. You can reach Goa by various routes such as NH48 and NH66. Both the routes will leave you mesmerised with some of their off-beat and not-so-much-explored beaches. Here’s a list of 4 stunning beaches on the route of the Mumbai-Goa road trip.

1. Ganpatipule Beach

If you are taking the route of NH66 then you will get to explore various places starting from historical sites, beaches, and temples. The first beach on this list is Ganpatipule beach. This beach is not that popular with the crowd but has a lot to explore here. Along the Konkan coast, this seems like a heaven for adventure aficionados and beach lovers. The most stunning part about Ganpatipule is that the water is very clean and it’s surrounded by white sand. You can experience paragliding, motorboat riding, camel rides, pedal boat riding, and so much here on this beach. In addition to the scenic views, travellers can even walk around the beach and explore nearby places like Velneshwar beach temple and Swamyambhoo Ganpati Temple.

2. Guhagar Beach

Yet another stunning beach falling on NH66 during the Mumbai-Goa road trip is Guhagar Beach. This route is not appropriate if you have the tendency for motion sickness but the views and surroundings are mind-blowing. This 6-7 km long white sand beach is one of the longest beaches in the Konkan region. Apart from the pristine Guhagar beach, you can even go to Plashet beach, 12.5 km away from Guhagar. It’s definitely a paradise for mango lovers as the place is popular for Alphonso mangoes.
