7 Beaches to explore in Gujarat
The Gujarati-speaking people of India are indigenous to the state. The economy of Gujarat is the fifth-largest state economy in India with ₹13.14 lakh crore (US$190 billion) in GDP and a per capita GDP of ₹174,000 (US$2,500).
Dandi Beach is one of the prominent beaches located in Dandi village, Gujarat and also one of the cleanest beaches in India. Dandi Beach is historically prominent as Mahatma Gandhi led the salt satyagraha from Sabarmati Ashram (Ahmedabad) to Dandi. This is the beach where Mahatma Gandhi broke the salt tax law of the British after the Salt March. There are monuments placed in the seashore as a remembrance of the Dandi march.
Mandvi Beach is the closest to the town center, across the bridge to the east side of the river, then down the road past a place called Salaya, accessed from just near the Kashi-Vishvanath Temple (sometimes the beach is called Kashi-Vishvanath Beach.) Wind Farm Beach is 7 km west of town, named for the windmills that line it to generate electricity for the area. You can get fresh coconuts and other snacks, swim in very pleasant water, and enjoy a nice view of the coastline.
Suvali beach is a black sand beach. The sand is slippery and slips fast beneath your feet. The beach is perfect to spend quiet moments alone or with your family and friends. Come here to witness a blissful sunrise and sunset.
Tithal Beach is the go-to destination for many when in need of a revitalizing break. Breaking the flow of the whitewashed 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.
