Gorai Beach, Mumbai Overview

Located in the north suburb of Mumbai, 40 kms from the main city, Gorai Beach is one the cleanest, most tranquil and one of the most frequented beaches of Mumbai. Located near Bhayandar, on the Gorai Creek, the soothing calmness of this beach bordering the Arabian Sea, makes for a perfect leisure weekend vacation. Other than the umpteen food shacks and street food options available at the spot, the beach is also replete with resorts and beach houses. Other than the numerous water sports, camel rides, boat rides and fun picnics, you can also rent one of these cottages to have a quiet private time with your friends and family.

Dotted with beautiful palm trees and an all-around clean environment, the place is a hot favourite among tourists who want to spend a day away from the chaos and din of the city. Since the beach is located on the outskirts of the city and boasts of surreal serenity, it is best picked among young couples who are looking for some solitude in the lap of nature.
