Stretches over 5 km, Diveagar Beach is a quaint amalgamation of greenery and azure water with gentle sprinkles of white sand. This beach is surrounded by Suru trees and a dense cover of belu trees as well. At one end of the beach is a fishing settlement while the other end offers a sanctuary to the migratory seagulls feasting in the creek waters. Diveagar Beach is not a flat beach unlike most of the other beaches in this region, be careful while playing in the waves as there are rocks strewn across some parts of the beach. Sand-bubble crabs and dolphins can be found on the beach. Some sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach as well. It is one of the must-visit places as part of Harihareshwar packages.
Gleaming white sand, pristine blue water, swaying coconut palms, & betel nut trees, and gentle breeze producing a serene and calming effect, Diveagar Beach is for those who truly want to get away from the hustle-bustle of big cities. The tide is low during the morning hours and one can frolic around in the water with your kids for the ultimate water adventure. This scenic beach is ideal for some amazing views of the Arabian Sea and a lovely evening stroll along the frothy sea as the sun sets in the backdrop.
The wavy shores of the Diveagar Beach along with the strong tides from the Arabian sea make it an ideal setting for sea surfing. There are also a variety of activities you can enjoy at the beach are parasailing, banana boat ride, bumper ride, jet ski, and motorboat ride. One must try the local flavors of this place. The beach also has some beach resorts where tourists make their stay for a tranquil beach vacation from nearby cities like Mumbai and Pune.
The village also houses a temple called Suvarna Ganesh Temple, which is another major attraction in Diveagar. Dedicated to Lord Ganesha, the temple has an idol, which has a mask made of pure gold. This mask was found by Draupadi Dharma Patil on 17th November 1997, while she was digging in her betel nut farm and then built the temple. The idol was stolen in 2012 and the idol has since then been replaced by one made with Silver. Sunder Narayan Temple is another attraction here.
