Shriwardhan Beach:

The Beach coast is about 3 kilometers long, very clean and very calm. This is the main attraction of Shrivardhan. Walk around the beach and feel exhilarated. An occasional wave will wash your feet. The sunsets are particularly fascinating. The dipping sun, the golden waves, and the occasional boat crossing the waves is a sight to behold. Cameras are now out to capture this scene and later re-live the memory of this walk. A vacation in this place and for that matter, a weekend in Shrivardhan can be made special because there are three of the best beaches near Pune in a stretch here - Shrivardhan-Harihareshwar-Diveagar. One after the other about 15 Kms from each other these beaches together make the Raigad beaches. The Kondivali beach in Shrivardhan is also a fishing port - Kalcha Jivana, and watching the life at this fishing hamlet is a great experience in itself.
