Beautiful beaches, sea waves crashing against an old fort, some creeks around - that's Malvan for you. A perfect getaway for souls that crave for solitude, it's a place far away from the crowded town alleys.

Malvan was a small fishing hamlet, just one of the many on the Konkan coast, before the mercurial Marathas breathed life into it. Particularly under their greatest leader Chhatrapati Shivaji, who in 1664 undertook the task of erecting the massive fort of Sindhudurg, on an island just off Malvan. Uniquely, the great warrior king contributed his own physical labour to its construction. That’s why, in Sindhudurg, you’ll discover the imprints of Shivaji’s own hands and feet preserved in a slab of lime.


One could say that the island’s natural advantages, its rocky outcrop and its reef-blocked harbour were ideal for fortification. It is believed that over 15,000 tons of iron were used in the castings and that its foundation stone was laid in lead. And as if this wasn’t enough, the Marathas under Shivaji are also believed to have fortified the nearby island of Padmagad and built a couple of forts north of Malvan town on the mainland.


Malvan is where you can turn the pages of history for a glimpse of those historic clashes. Today, Malvan’s waters are home to fishermen once again. The coast is quiet, pristine and amazingly beautiful. When the white sands squeeze through your toes on Tarkarli Beach, you can forgive yourself for letting go of the memory of warrior-kings, and slipping into a reverie.
