Located in Parule village in Sindhudurg district, Nivati Beach is a secluded stretch of white sand caressing the Arabian Sea across the Konkan coast of Maharashtra. The beach is located near Vengurla and is the star attraction of the small Nivati village. With a few good resorts along the beach, this makes for a nice getaway from the rush and commotion of the city and other crowded beach destinations nearby, like Goa. The beach is a secluded cove where you have the peace and quiet to listen to the ocean waves and sounds of the beach, and nothing else. Protecting this beach is NIvati Fort, a sentinel-like presence along the shoreline that makes for a nice spot to explore when you want to move around the beach.
