My List Of 12 Must-Visit Beaches in India

So. I am back to that travel dream that I started nurturing a few months ago. It was going through a major lull, but now it’s back! And how! So, to go ahead with it, I decided, what better to start back on the topic than to dwell on golden sands, blue, twinkling waters, recliner seats and those bending palms. All I can think of is the gentle lap of the waters against the sandy shores, me sitting on that recliner seat that I just imagined and sipping on coconut juice. Too cliché? Or, I could just be writing words on the sand and watch the water wash them away. What better than this to let go of those few inhibitions that I nurture? 😉

There are a few that I have visited: Calangute, Baga, Anjuna, Vagator, Visakhapatnam’s RK Beach, Chowpatti, Juhu etc.

So, here is a list of the beaches in India that I have jotted down and will plan to visit sometime soon. Hopefully! 😉

  1. Kovalam Beach, Kerala: How could one miss the beaches in God’s own country? A dip in those cool waters would be so relaxing! And to top it off, there’s that lighthouse that I’m itching to conquer! 😉kovalam-beach

  1. Radhanagar Beach, Havelock Island: There’s just so much one can do to not close one’s eyes and imagine oneself walking on those sands or frolicking in the blue waters.radhanagar-beach

  1. Miramar Beach, Goa: Situated in the heart of Panaji and one of the most frequented beaches of Goa, we were supposed to visit this beach to enjoy the sunrise as we were staying close by. But call it luck or call it pure laziness to wake up so early (it was summer), I am repenting not having visited it at the time.miramar-beach

  1. Kudle beach, Gokarna, Karnataka: Raw, earthy and serene, there is something about this beach that draws me to it. Ever since I saw a few friends put up pics, I have been wanting to go here.Kudle_beach_gokarna

  1. Murudeshwara Beach, Karnataka: Named after Lord Shiva, this beach serves as a beautiful backdrop to the magnificence of the larger-than-life statue of the Lord sitting in all His glory.Murudeshwar-Beach

  1. Maravanthe Beach, Karnataka: A National Highway runs between the waters of the Arabian Sea and the Souparnika River. It’s beautiful, awe-inspiring and as close to one can get of witnessing a one-of-a-kind union of river and sea!Saurpanika_river_Arabian_Sea_Kundapur

  1. Alapuzzha Beach, Kerala: Okay, now who doesn’t want to follow the ruins of the sea bridge? I know I do!Alappuzha-beach

  1. Kappad Beach, Kerala: This one has a history. And that is precisely why I have a strong urge to go and explore this place. Remember Vasco Da Gama? Yeah, that Portuguese explorer? Yeah. He landed here in 1498.KappadBeach

  1. Suryalanka Beach, Andhra Pradesh: I have been pestering my friends for more than two years now. And not once has a plan been made. 😦 Cottages on the beach. As soon as you open the door, sea breeze rushes to caress your face. And the fun that you’ll have with friends? Priceless.suryalanka

  1. Paradise Beach, Pondicherry: One more beach that I missed visiting and I regret missing it. Ill health kept me out of the plan to visit this beauty, effectively robbing me of a bonus boat ride. So, wait up, Paradise. I’ll be there soon! 🙂paradise beach

There’s nothing better than closing your eyes and imagining yourself stepping on the cool sands of a beach. Maybe only a Tropical Iceberg, but you get the point.

So. If you’ve read this, please tell me what you think. 🙂

Until you sight the sands, keep reading, keep dreaming and most importantly, keep smiling. 🙂
