Karde is located in the Dapoli division of Ratanagiri district. It is one of the cleanest and virgin beaches in Maharashtra. Secluded and tranquil,  Karde beach can be called one of the most romantic beaches. Karde is located at a distance of 196 km from Pune and is a drive of about 4 and half hours.
 
Karde is the longest beach on the Konkan strip, connecting Harnai and Burundi. The primary attraction of Karde is the exciting dolphin watching tour. Local tour operators will arrange the ride for you and charge anything between Rs. 150 and Rs. 200 per head and approximately Rs. 1000 for an exclusive ride. Best chance of spotting the dolphins is early in the morning.
 
You can also enjoy parasailing on the beach. If u have a two wheeler at hand, the drive on the beach during low tide is quite exciting and enjoyable. Karde beach has a white sand film covering the normal pale coloured sand which creates beautiful shaded patterns on the beach, adding to the beauty of the breaking waves. The Sheoak Plantations or “suruban”  line the entire coastline. This is a perfect place to relax and bask in the afternoon sun. The water not being very deep, is perfect and safe for swimming.
 
Good and cheap accommodation facilities are available all along the beach. There also a few home-stay facilities available. One thing you absolutely cannot miss is the exquisite and fresh seafood cooked in the local style. Vegetarians, don’t worry! The local cuisine has a lot of vegetarian  options to offer as well!
 
The best time to visit Karde is during the months of October to March. Summer is from March to May and it gets quite hot and humid then. If you love the rains June to September is the best time to visit.
 
Apart from the irresistible beach, there are many other places of historical and religious importance, and nearby beaches too.

The drive from Dapoli to Karde is very scenic. Karde beach is one of the cleanest beaches I have ever seen. As it is not frequented by many people. The weekly local market was a different experience.

Karde is an ideal destination for a romantic getaway. We enjoyed the long walks on the soft sandy beach and the beautiful sunset. The local food was very delicious. Karde is the best option if you are looking for a short weekend trip.
