Tithal Beach, Surat Overview

One of the most popular attractions of South Gujarat, the Tithal Beach is the go-to destination for many when in need of a revitalising break. Breaking the flow of the white washed waves, the Tithal beach glimmers like a gold necklace that decorates the azure neck of the Arabian Sea. Come the weekend, and the beach is flocked by local tourists that come here to lounge languorously in the sun, stare at the sunsets, take a stroll down the coast in the gentle breeze and enjoy some coconut water and roasted corn. Spending some quality time with friends and family and reconnecting with your own self at this beach is the perfect way to break the monotony of our fast-paced daily lives.

What a lot of people don't know is that this beach is all set for becoming India's first divyaang (differently abled) friendly beach in India! Another thing the Tithal Beach is particularly famous for is the rare and unique composition of its sand - the black sand. Black sand beaches are not a very common phenomenon, but the shore of Tithal beach is one of the few coasts blessed with this beautiful soil.

You can spend time enjoying water sports, water rides, camel and horse rides and arcade games at the beach. All these rides and games are designed to cater to all- bubbly children, adventure monger teens and peace-loving adults. Also, there are three temples on the shore- BAPS Swaminarayan Temple, a Saibaba Temple and a Vishnu Temple. These temples hold great religious significance to the locals and are frequently visited by people in and around the city.
