List of Best Beaches of Gujarat For All Tourists

Gujarat is a state in the western region of India which shares borders with Pakistan on the west and has the longest coastline among all states in India. The long coastline provides Gujarat with numerous beaches, some of which are very popular in Gujarat. People from all over the country visit some of these most popular beaches in Gujarat, especially during the months of November to February as the weather in other months is on the hotter side. Apart from beaches in Gujarat, the beaches of Daman and Diu are also frequently visited by people in Gujarat and geographically they are in the same region. The neighbouring beaches in Daman and Diu are largely popular amongst Gujaratis looking for a weekend getaway also because Gujarat is a dry state which bans the sale of alcohol to people without special permits. Among the popular beach destinations within Gujarat are Bhuj, Porbandar, Somnath, Dwarka, Surat and Valsad.
