How to reach from Mumbai??

There are two routes.

  1. The road route: Mumbai ->Panvel -> Pen -> Wadkhal -> Nagothane ->Roha -> Mhasala ->  Harihareshwar . This route is shorter but not very scenic or happening in any way. The Roha Murud road is 2 – laned but narrow with quite a substantial part of it’s stretch being patchy between Mhasala & Roha and Roha & Nagothane. 
  2. The coastal route: Mumbai -> Panvel -> Pen -> Wadkhal -> Kashid (via Alibaug Road) -> Murud -> Mhasala -> Harihareshwar. Though it is longer route but the beach road via Kashid – Murud for it’s scenic drive along the coastal route makes it beautiful.

Places to stay:

There are many good accommodations available in form of home stays, resorts and some budget hotels.

If staying in Harihareshwar we would recommend the Harihareshwar beach resort (which is right at the beach and near the temple) or the MTDC resort.

In Diveagar a better option would be to stay in Exotica beach resort in Diveagar, an excellent property of MTDC maintained and run by a private owner or You can prefer to dine at Exotica as the food and services are very good perhaps the best you can find in the whole of triple beaches belt.
