The picturesque Versova Beach is set North of Juhu Beach in Greater Mumbai district of Maharashtra. Versova Beach is among Mumbai's hot attractions. As a continuation of Juhu Beach, Versova Beach is separated by a creek. With splendorous Arabian Sea lunging on its sandy shore, Versova Beach is an ultimate fun destination. It is also home to Mumbai's largest fishing community - the Koils.
You may plan a trip to Versova Beach at practically anytime, however we
advice you to make a trip between September and May, when the humidity
is low and the cool see breeze gives a pleasant respite from the general
heat and grime of the city life.
Among the most fascinating scenes of Versova Beach is the time when
fishermen are ready to barge into the Sea to get their first catch, all
armed with their fishing nets and lines. The whole ambience gives a
surreal feel and can tempt you to go take some snaps of such magical
moments. And of course if you are among those who love fishes, then
buying fishes could be a great shopping experience as well, with the
first catch for your taste buds.
The Arabian Sea on Versova Beach could be slightly dangerous too, since
it forms treacherous whirlpools that can suck fishing boats and
trawlers. So it's better to be aware while planning to go swimming in
the Sea. During High tides the whole of Versova Beach gets submerged.
When in Versova Beach you could plan various other destinations that
are equally fulfilling in what they offer. There is Juhu Beach that is
another hot fun lovers destination. When in Juhu you could visit ISKCON
temple and get some faith healing.
