Madh Island is another popular spot, which comes off
surprisingly in the rural area of
coast. It is dotted with the bungalows of the urban upper class. It has a
reputation as a discreet place to throw beach parties and hold techno
raves. Madh is lined by a series of unspoilt sandy beaches.
The beaches are not particularly picturesque, strong currents and shifting sands make the sea too treacherous for swimming. The main reason to come here is to escape the urban environment, explore the fishing villages and enjoy a stroll along the seashore.
Located in the suburbs of Mumbai, Madh Island is easily accessible. Mumbai city is well connected by local trains, which reach every corner of the city, and tourists can also reach Madh by city buses.
