At a distance of 20 km from Diveaghar, and 21 km from Harihareshwar, Srivardhan Beach is a pristine beach located at Shrivardhan town in Raigad district of Maharashtra. It is one of the popular weekend getaways from Mumbai, and among the must-visit places as part of Harihareshwar Packages.

Stretches about 3 km long, Srivardhan Beach is a very clean and calm beach located along the Arabian Sea coastline. The majestic black sand coastline is bestowed with striking palm groves and mango plantations. The long pristine coastline of Srivardhan is most idyllic for a break from the hectic schedules of modern life and is considered as one of the best weekend getaways from Pune, and Mumbai.

The crashing waves against the black sand are worth seeing. One can find water sports like boating, paragliding, and water surfing at this beach. Kids can enjoy horse riding, camel riding, and Buggy riding as well. It is also an ideal place for swimming as the waters are shallow. Post noon, the tides are high and you can make a splash in the waves. The sunsets of this beach are particularly fascinating. The dipping sun, the golden waves, and the occasional boat crossing the waves is a sight to behold. Trekking the cliffs of Shrivardhan is also a major attraction for adventure seekers.

The beach is surrounded by several eateries that serve authentic Malvani food and misal. One can also see a great variety of fishes in Shrivardhan as there is a good market for fishermen. Shrivardhan has several homestay options near the beach stretch.
