RAJASTHAN TOURISM Places
Land of the 400- year old Swayambhu ganapati and eager tourists. Set along
the western coast of maharastra, is a small little village called Ganapatiphule.
It is known for it's scerene sedate beach. Unlike most beaches which are
spoilt by tourist traffic, the Ganapatiphule beach is as natural and pristine
as ever. Even today, the waters are blue and the sands, white.
Travelling to Ganapatiphule by road is a vacation in itself. The entire
'konan' region is paradise- for miles there is something new to discover,
in whichever direction you go: narrow roads, red soil roofed houses, clean
courtyards, innumerable fruit- bearing trees (including mango, betelnut,
banana, jackfruit, etc.) and casuarinas lining the cost are a common sight.
Meeting the ever-friendly and hospitable 'konkanis' and chatting with
them could unearth innumerable delights of holidaying in this naturally
