More on Dapoli

Named so for its relatively cool climate and beautiful ambience, Dapoli is a coastal beauty situated in the state of Maharashtra. Located in the Ratnagiri district, it is a surprisingly beautiful hill station, situated in the coastal Konkan region of the Maharashtrian state. From historic forts to ancient caves, pristine beaches, there is nothing that Dapoli doesn't have. No wonder why this relatively unexplored site is now an emerging tourist hotspot, especially for the weekend destination travellers. 

The local cuisine here is that of Malvani food known for it's spicy food of curries and fries.
Being close to the Konkan side and Goa, little of Konkani Cuisine has also seeped in, thus you can find konkani styled fresh sea-food and Kokum Juice which is a refreshing drink to have during summers. Solkadhi-rice with fresh sea-food is a famous local meal.

- Though hotels are available even during peak seasons, it is best to enquire beforehand especially if you plan to stay for a few days.- In case, you're planning to explore the caves do not forget to carry torches as the caves would dark and don't have any lighting facilities.
