I am planning to drive from Mumbai to Khashid beach either this weekend or the next one. Can someone help me understand which route should i consider.

1st route: Mumbai - Panvel - Pen - Alibaug - Khashid

2nd Route: Mumbai - Mumbai - Mumbai Pune Expressway - Khalapur - Durshet - Pali - Roha - Khashid


I undertstand that the road conditions of the 1st route is bad and it is advisable to consider the second route. Kindly assist.

Ravi

As with most of my replies, this doesn't answer the OP's query, but adds some other information.

At Kashid, be careful while entering the water. The corals are very sharp, I have had my feet cut by rushing in running and then feeling the burning pain. Ruined my visit to the beach..

The 2nd route is much better though a bit long. In fact if you check on Google Maps as well, the fastest route is via Xpressway, Khalapur, Roha...journey time will be 3.5 to 4 hours + the breaks which you will take. Njoi.

The second route - fastest and the most scenic.

Also, you may want to add a detour to your route via Phansad after Roha. The route is narrow, passes through a forest and has steep descends at some places.

Have been on both the routes.

Route 1 is the most used route. Vadkhal could be a big traffic problem. Road till Vadkhal is good / okay after that the condition deteriorates.

Route 2 is faster / longer and you will have to pay toll as you will be using the expressway. If possible see the Pali Ashtavinayak temple. Not been beyond Pali in this route.

Current update on route 1. The road condition has worsened from what it was during May end due a combination of monsoon and road expansion work. Compared to NH 66 the road from Vadkhal to Alibaug is heaven.

Just been to kashid a few days back. Panel vadkhal stretch is really really bad, full of jam. Beyond that is kinda ok.
