Marve and Manori Beaches are among the most picturesque beaches that Mumbai boasts of. These beaches are located at the distance of approximately 19kms from Mumbai. The sheer scenic beauty of these beaches with unspoilt sand is conspicuous with the absence of the chaotic crowd of vendors that are so common to Mumbai beaches.
You can enjoy the Sun and the Sea amidst complete silence except the
music of surging waves that you would love to explore. Marve and Manori
beaches are dotted with some of the finely managed exotic private
cottages built on the backdrop of the vast Arabian Sea and gaping Sun,
that make these beaches all the more a tempting site to visit.
There is one ancient Portuguese Church at Marve and a grove of Cashew
nut trees that add to the beauty of this beach. Along with Marve and
Manori Beaches there is Gorai Beach which too is equally popular among
revelers. These three locales are inhabited by Catholic natives of
Mumbai, and the kind of attire they wear along with old churches make
the region resemble to that of Goa's aura.
