Harnai Beach is located at a distance of 200km in the Ratnagiri district. One of the most popular beaches in Dapoli, Harnai is a long flat beach with the Suvarnadurg fort looming in the horizons on the northern side and the vast expanse of sandy beach extending up to Karde and further towards its south. Named after one of the greatest visionaries the nation has seen to date. The Harnai beach or the Maharshi Karve Beach is a vast expanse of sandy beach.
The Durga Devi temple right at the start of the way to the Maharshi Karve, Harnai beach is one of the most important temples in this part of Dapoli. The Durga Devi temple was built way back in the 18th century with Durga Devi as the presiding diety with a pyramid-like roof of terracotta tiles, along with a pond and a hanging temple bell to the left of the main entrance.
The Photo gallery in the honor of the first Bharat Ratna laureate - Maharshi Dr. Dhondo Keshav Karve is at Harnai and well worth a visit if you want to see some of the rarest and historic photographs of Maharshi Dhondo Keshav Karve and his efforts towards education for women and widow marriage. Though a small step to pay homage to a great man the effort is definitely laudable.
Harnai Beach is a very popular beach with bird watchers at the northern end of Harnai beach almost always is filled with schools of seagulls. Paragliding is a regular feature at the Harnai beach and you will find many people having fun riding their bikes on the beach here on the Harnai beach. Harnai fort is also one of the attractions situated near the Harnai beach.
On the south end of this fort, there is another beach that is fully covered by the palm forests and is very much famous among the visitors for the crystal clear white sands and fully safe waters. One of the famous rock-cut monuments, namely Panhale Kazi, also increases the value of this place. It is just a 30 kilometers away from me. The nearest airport in Mumbai is about a 200 kilometers away from Harnai Beach whereas the railway station situated nearly is 154 kilometers away. There are many buses provided by the government from Pune to Harnai beach that proves to be very much helpful to the tourists due to a direct connection from the main city.
