Hi everyone,

hope to find some experienced people here! :-)

I would like to go to Dwarka to vist the temples and attend pujas - combined with a bit of relaxation near the coast. Would that work?

Could anyone comment on Dwarka Beach and the larger beach/coast area south of Dwarka?

I'd appreciate a more or less clean part where it would be ok for people around if I go swimming in a swimsuit.

I don't need/like large resorts and I do not want to lie on the beach for the whole day . Seems that the majority of people hearing "beach" from a foreigner want to put you to Diu....

My imagination is that I could mcuh better combine the holy part with a bit of sea experience in Dwarka. It'll be in the end of my travel and if possible I'd like to go to one place for both and stay a few days at one place.

I believe it feels more like "India" in Dwarka than in Diu.

Is its possible to have relaxing walks along the coast south of Dwarka?

Any insights and recommendations will be gratefully received! Thanks!

Do note that the sea off Dwarka can become pretty rough. Not questioning your swimming skills, just mentioning it.
Coming to your query, in Dwarka you will find many people swimming in the Gomti river, just before it meets the sea. Also the Dwarka beach is a good bet to enjoy the sea.
One of your queries is regarding the swimsuit, I am not sure of the gender - so a general reply. Males no issue, females may be there would be some - unless you are in a rather isolated location. Would recommend donning a t-shirt over the swim suit if its okay with you. (no politically correct answer here, ground realities need to be taken note of).

You can walk along the beach, many temples around Dwarka. If you do have time - Madhavpur is supposed to be a wonderful beach in that region - but is a good 3-4 hours away from Dwarka. You will have to cross Porbandar to reach there.
