Vinay Kamtikar, who has visited several beaches in India, feels the best of the lot is Sadashivgad beach.

"I had the good fortune of visiting several beaches," says Vinay, "including Puri, Digha, Kovalam, Colva, Gokarna, Karwar and the beaches at Kakinada, Kozhikode, Rameshwaram, Vishakapatnam, Kanyakumari and Dubai too!"

"I visited Sadashivgad beach with my wife and son and found it to be the best."

"It is tucked away in a quiet corner around 10 km from Karwar town. The Kurumgad mountains add to the scenic background. You'll find dolphins, kingfishers, herons, local sea birds and crabs for company," adds Vinay.

"To add to the beauty, the Kali river passes by less than a km away, running parallel to the beach."

"Small fishing boats, country yokels, a quaint post office and a few shacks on the service road serve as pointers and will help calm you down just in case you feel you are lost."

"Gopalpur beach is situated just 17 km from Berhampur in Odisha. Last week, I went there with my son," he says.

"I have visited a few beaches in India, but I think this is one of the cleanest beaches. It is a beautiful beach and is not very crowded."

"My son was initially afraid to go in the water, but when he did step in, he enjoyed himself for two hours!"
