Murud was our destination of choice to relax and unwind this last long-weekend. A short drive to the south of Mumbai, Murud is a small beach town which still has a few pristine, idyllic beaches.
The sand in Murud beach is very fine and clayey, due to which it is rather tightly packed. The waves create some very beautiful patterns along the beach.
With few people visiting, there are a lot of seashells, starfish and clams that end up on the beach after a high tide.
During our vacation, the town of Murud celebrated Dussehra. I don’t know why religious celebration is used as a license to spoil and dirty nature. It marred an otherwise fine weekend. I hope people get more sense.
