Konkan is famous for its beaches and there are many beaches in the vicinity of Greengate Resort. The most recommended of all of them is Harihareshwar beach. MTDC beach is in front of Greengate Resort and it is always open for all of the visitors as it is Governmental. Along with them, there is Shrivardhan beach, Shekhadi beach, Diveagar beach and so on.

Harihareshwar Temple


Till now, you might have been known a little about Harihareshwar. Harihareshwar is very old temple and have its own importance. Harihareshwar is a ‘jagrut devasthan’ and you can feel it in the temple, that the peace of the soul.
Harihareshwar temple is actually of Hari, Hara and Ishwar, that is Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh and Parwati’s temple. Just aside of Harihareshwar temple, there isKalbhairaw and Yogeshwari Mata’s temple. Nearby, there is Hanuman Mandir. Thus Harihareshwar is ‘temple town’. If you are religious natured, Harihareshwar is best “TeerthaKhetra” for you where you can complete various rituals and rites and “Pandits” will help you in that. You can perform almost all rituals that you expect. Greengate can better guide you about this.
The temple is thronged by the devotees of Lord Shiva especially during the celebrations of Mahashivratri.

Harihareshwar beach


Harihareshwar beach is clean, vast and a part of Arabian Sea. The temple is placed just on Harihareshwar beach. You can play in tides, do water sporting and sand biking, ride on buggy or play in sand. Sunset on Harihareshwar increases your enjoyment by many a times. Tides on Harihareshwar beach are also too fascinating. You can sit on platform and enjoy the tides that are jumping 8 or 10 feet high and at the same time, you can see the sun resting in the Arabian Sea.             

Shukla Teertha


Shukla Tirtha is one of the most beautiful Tirthas in Harihareshwar. You can come across Shukla Tirtha while doing Parikrama. Shukla Tirtha is situated 30 feet inside the sea yet the nature around it is truly incredible. The stormy waves, rocky shore, vast ocean and hills aside makes Shukla Tirtha more adventurous than any other sight. While Parikrama, at its highest point, you can see never-ending, extensive Arabian Sea and long stairs (generally known as Ganesh Gully!) going towards Shukla Tirtha. It is thrilling. This is only that can complete your trip.      

MTDC beach


MTDC beach is placed just in front of the Greengate Resort. It takes hardly two minutes to reach this beach from Greengate. It is always open for folks as it is Governmental. You can have a long morning walk on this beach. It is the great experience. The sunrise at MTDC beach is marvellous and only the one. The shimmering sand and waves are too pleasing that you cannot keep yourself by capturing it in your memories. If you are so fortunate then you may meet an eagle or seagull or any other unexpected guest. I highly recommend you to visit this beach.
It is not that you can meet MTDC beach only in daytime. MTDC beach at night under moonlight is also too lovely. You can enjoy calm atmosphere with the sound of high tide. This melange is stupendous.
