- Ratnagiri has various sides to it. Its a beach town, historical place and also a religious place. Make sure you have enough time to catch all of it.
- Ganpatipule, being a religious place, most of the tourists here are pilgrims, so if you have come here to enjoy the sun, sand and water, you might feel a little out of the place, but you can take this to your own advantage and enjoy the beach to the fullest.
- Wear comfortable clothes and light slippers if you are here to enjoy the beach.
- Water Sports are not necessarily carried out on all days even during November-May.
- Do not miss the mangoes, Konkani food and the beautiful coastline.
