- Being near the coast, the air can be quite humid and hot in summers, plan your visit accordingly.- In case of planning to stay back, make sure you enquire about the availability of hotel rooms beforehand.

Malvan trip was really good.There were a lot of water sports activities to try but I really enjoyed the scuba diving. I was scared in the beginning as I am not a good swimmer actually I never swim in the sea before so. But the experts and trainers guided me and their instructions helped me a lot.When I was inside the water, believe me, it was so beautiful to see the marine life a completely new world of beauty. I will plan to visit again. Thanks to Sea Water Sports make my trip was memorable.
