A continuation of Juhu Beach towards the Andheri suburbs, Versova Beach is comparatively less crowded and only separated by a creek from the former beach. Versova is essentially a fishing village inhabited by Kolis (fisherfolks) situated in the vicinity of the beach, and is a hotbed for fish trade. The beach is rather small but is extremely popular for the humongous fish market and the fish auctions held at the spot on a daily basis. Separated by huge rock boulders to keep the village safe from the sea waves and tides, the beach attracts tourists owing to its natural beauty and surreal horizon views.
The solitude attracts numerous professional photographers and shutterbugs, especially during dawn and dusk to capture the enchanting panorama and landscape vistas. Besides, the beach offers several sports like snorkelling, cycling, horse riding etc. Festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi are celebrated with a lot of pomp and show and the season draws tourists in thousands to be a part of the festivities.
