6. Alibaug Chowpatty:

You must have heard about Orissa & other beaches where water vanishes in a daytime, but no need to travel that far to experience that thing. Our favourite Alibag Chowpatty does the same thing. Witness the beach around 11 am and observe the water flowing away from the beach for approx. 2-3 km. One can walk till the fort which is situated on the water. Strange isn’t it? Just make sure that you return before 4 pm, otherwise you will get to experience Arabian sea in more details.
