Know before you go-

Located at a distance of 19 km from Chhatrapati Shivaji Aiport in Mumbai, Manori is easily accessible via road. While public transport is available on this route, it is better to hire a private vehicle because the options for buses are very few. Alternatively, you can travel to the Borivali station and take a bus/auto on your way to Manori.

Given the warm and humid summers experienced by Mumbai, the autumn and winter months from October to March make for the best time for planning your itinerary. While a camera is definitely a necessity here, you also need to take along sufficient cash as there are no ATMs at or around the beach.

It is not often that we tumble over such a phenomenal fusion of nature's aesthetics and cultural antiques topped with a modern appeal! If a rendezvous with the roaring ocean waters is on your mind or your heart wishes to sink in sprawling stretches of sand, Manori is where you need to be. So stop wondering and plan a soulful getaway to this incredible spot, right away!
