At a distance of 10 km from Diveagar, 10 km from Shrivardhan, and 27 km from Harihareshwar, Kondvil Beach, or Kondivali Beach is a pristine beach situated on the Konkan Coast in Maharashtra. It is one of the secluded beaches in Maharashtra, and among the popular places to visit near Harihareshwar.

Situated between Shrivardhan, and Diveaghar, Kondivli Beach is quite serene, and away from the maddening tourist crowds of Mumbai and Pune. This is one of the stunning black sand beaches near Harihareshwar with the gently curved seashore, with some rocks and numerous trees.

The sands are unmarked by footprints and the road winds around low-lying cliffs from where tourists have to climb down to reach the waters. The currents are a bit unpredictable, but locals claim it's safe for swimming. The Shrivardhan cliffs, situated close to Kondivali Beach, are popular for trekking. The brownish-black sand of the beach with the lush forest makes it a delight to the visitors. There is a road alongside the beach, so if you want a beach drive then Kondvil Beach is the place. One can also visit an old and small Shankar Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati near the beach.
