Sindhudurg Fort

Reviewed By ManishM1966 - Mumbai, India

It's in middle of sea, need to reach by boat. Recommended to go in morning / latest by 3:30pm as boat service may stop after this depending on water level.
Cap & sunglasses, recommended
honestly nothing great to see if you have been to such fort at Alibaug or other places.
Fort isn't maintained properly. Quite a bit of walking.

Enjoyed every bit of it. I did scuba for first time in my life and was enthralled by the experience of rich underwater world. Scuba is bit tricky but worth every second of it. There is no risk as all time experienced diver is holding you. If you get the hang of

One of the cleanest and least crowded Beaches in Malvan. There are beautiful coloured boats anchored on the shore and the white sand makes one wonder that you're actually in Maldives. Splendid views with lots of trees, this beach is full of calmness and tranquility.

Sateri Devi Jal Mandir

Reviewed By Kanchan521962 - Mumbai, India

12 Kms away from Malvan, in Bilwas is situated on Masure road. An old & huge Temple at the bottom side of Bilwas mountain is a great attraction of tourist. Shri Sateri is residency deity of Bilwas. This Temple with huge sabhamandap built in 12-13th century. This Temple was surrounded with lake water, so it’s called ‘Jalmandir’. But now days, only mud is spread over in the lake.
Legend behind the Temple : In old days, Bilwas was a part of Masure village. A Lake with clean water spread with greenery on its bank. Cattels were come across there to drink water. One day at noon, two buffalos started fighting in lake, suddenly a buffalo struck the anthill present in the lake, & bleeding started from that anthill. When cattle men knew about it, they got surprised & decided to built a Temple on anthill. The lots of tourist & devotees come from Maharashtra & even from Kerala, Karnataka to worship & pray the diety.
