Murud-Janjira is situated close to Alibagh, which is the headquarter of Raigad district. It is one of the most popular and alluring beaches of Maharashtra. The green palm trees add a lot to the beauty and freshness of the beach. Kashid and Nandgaon beaches too are near from Murud.
All these beaches, which were not that popular till some time back are fast emerging as favourite destinations for water enthusiasts and tent holidays. Weather is warm and humid here, but the sea breeze cools down the environment making the beach a perfect destination for tranquil holidays.
There is also a 300-year old fort having marvelous architectural designs. Nawab's palace and Janjira caves are the favourite spots for tourists. There is also a shrine of Lord Dattatreya on the top of the hill.
