Korlai Beach is one of the hidden gems of Mumbai. Situated at a little distance from the town of Alibaug, the main beach is located in the small fisher village of Korlai. Contrary to the usual sand beaches of Maharashtra, this one full of green-yellow weeds, pink oxalis flowers and grassy meadows during the rainy season. In the heated summers and extreme winters, however, the beach becomes deserted and rocky without the velvet cover. The village is inhabited by fisherfolks and hence, the beach is mostly used for trade and commercial purposes.
Korlai beach has little tourism as it is not known to many, which in turn makes it an ideal weekend getaway spot. Besides the gorgeous sweeping views of the blue sea on one side and the emerald grassy hues on the other, the beach also boasts of an age old fort and a lighthouse. The village in the vicinity has an old world charm with tiny colorful homes and narrow lanes. Not far from the village is an old church which has currently been shut down but now is used for vintage photography and exploration. All in all, the beach is a perfect place to spend a day with friends, family or just by yourself.
