With Mumbai being a nearby cities, the town has a number of transportation options from tourists all around the world, thus helping tourists reach Vikramgad without much hassle. Also, the quaint nature of the village acts as an alluring factor to many tourists looking for an escapade in the proximity of the sea.

For Whom

For nature enthusiasts and adventure seekers, Vikramgad might be your perfect getaway. A weekend trip to Vikramgad will be an ideal visit. The place is much chased by young people in groups, but can overall be visited by everyone having an eye for nature.
