Redi, previously known as Reddipatnam, is a small fishing village located on the Konkan coasts of Maharashtra. Redi beach is the name given to the sea cost that adjoins this village. With white sands and tranquil atmosphere, this beach is fast growing to be one of the major tourist attractions in Konkan.
Most people who have visited this beach will understand in the first moment that this beach is very different from others. Isolated and far from day to day pollution, this beach has a panoramic view. Filled with crystal clear waters and surrounded by beautiful coconut trees and cashew plants, this beach offers scenic beauty like no other.
Redi offers quite a soothing experience to the visitors with excellent sunset visuals. Here you will find dogs playing, tourists strolling around or swimming, villagers sitting and chatting in groups, and enjoying the cool breeze after a long day of hard work and children playing games.
As mentioned earlier, since this beach is isolated, it is never over populated and gives it a virgin touch. Sitting on the white sands and watching the sunset while sipping on the delicious coconut water is the best thing to do at Redi beach. These are the moments that every visitor will cherish for a long time to come.
Famous temples such as the Swayambhu Shiv Temple, the Ganesha Temple, the Mauli Temple, the Rampurush Temple and the Navadurga Temple, where Goddess Durga is worshipped are some of the religious places to visit. The Yashwantgad Fort, Shiroda, Aravali and the Terekhol Fort are some of the historic monuments that you might want to visit
Goa is roughly 34 km away from the beach and Vengurla town is 20 km away. Multiple government buses operate between Panjim, Vengurla and Redi. This is the most cost efficient way to reach Redi. Alternatively, you can catch a Konkan railway train and get down at Sawantwadi or Kural and then catch a bus or hire a taxi to Redi. However, for tourists who love road trips, scooters are available for rent in both Panjim and Vengurla.
