Located just off the main attractions and far more crowded destinations in Malvan, Tondavali is a secluded beach alongside the Kalaval creek. Kalaval creek gives Tondavali an air similar to Kerala with backwaters and the sea coming together alongwith swaying coconut palms.


Tarkarli shot into fame after M.T.D.C started the beach resort in Tarkarli and declared Tarkarli as one of the premiere beach destination in Maharashtra. The backwaters of Karli river running almost parallel to the Tarkarli beach imparts Tarkarli an almost surreal beauty.


Devbaug, which literally translates to 'Gods Garden' truely lives upto its name. A beautiful piece of land jutting out of the mainland with the Karli back waters on one side and Arabian sea on the other Devbaug is a beautiful piece of land. Karli backwaters meets the Arabian sea at the 'sangam'.
