My first Christmas and New Year was celebrated at Alibhag along with some friends. We were around 15 people who include 3 kids and 4 elders. We just had so much fun at this place. We were there for around a week and each and every day was fun. Every day, we used to be awake till 1 or 2 in the midnight and were just playing dumsharas, anthakshari and cards. It was totally fun.
There are many places to see around Alibhag and we almost covered most of the places. Most of the places were beaches. I never been to beach and this was my first experience with the beaches. Initially I was very scared to get into the beach as I don’t know swimming and was scared of drowning. But the people made me comfortable and I just thoroughly enjoyed the beach.
First we visited Karnala Bird Sanctuary. It’s around 60 kms from Mumbai and 10 kms from Panvel. At entrance, we could see some peacock, parrot and other birds. But once you go inside the forest on the way to Karnala Fort, you get to see different types of birds and trees. We tried to go to Fort, but it was too steep, a bit scary and we were very tired. So we just came back half the way, but it is worth visiting this place. You can find some details about this fort here.
