Kalamb Beach Nalasopara – Explore Virar Vasai Beaches

“Kalamb Beach can be found in Nalasopara West, close to Nirmal Village. It is situated in the Palghar District, which is part of the far north suburban area of Mumbai along the western railway route.

Compared to the beaches of Arnala, Navapur, and Rajodi, Kalamb is the fourth beach in a sequence. It stands out for being cleaner, safer, and less crowded. The beach has semi-black thick sand and offers hotels and resorts for accommodation. Additionally, there are plenty of trees providing shade, making it an excellent choice for a day picnic with a group or a couple.”

Speciality and Beach Attractions

Kalamb beach is the fourth recommended beach out of the four connected beaches. It is a great place to spend a day on its thick wet sand. Unlike Arnala beach, which is crowded and dirty, you can see it from here.

There is a village called Rajodi in between, and there is also another clean beach called Rajodi nearby. Likewise, Navapur Beach is located next to Rajodi towards Arnala, but it is not well-known to many people because it is far from both Virar and Nalasopara. If you are interested in a peaceful beach for weekdays, there are a few resorts available. You can watch the video below to get an idea of how these connected beaches look like.

Except for weekends and public holidays, Kalamb Beach is less crowded and peaceful. If you are looking for an isolated beach in Vasai Virar is a location to spend time alone or in group, this is where your search ends.

A calm and spacious beach with a refreshing breeze. Simply sit under the shade of coconut and other trees by the shore, as summers are hot and winters are perfect. The evenings at this beach are even more stunning with a peaceful and captivating sunset view. It’s just you, the sound of the waves, and the cool breeze. This solitude is what draws couples to this beach.

When it comes to food options, grab some items and bottled water from Nirmal Village Junction. I’m spending a day at this beach. There are resorts available, but honestly, the quality of vegetarian food is not great. Share your thoughts on non-vegetarian food in the comment section below.

The water flow and condition are perfect for a refreshing swim without any worries. However, it is important to be cautious with children since there are no lifeguards present. The local villagers and fishermen are the best people to seek advice from.

Although there is a limit to everything, it is safe to enter the water at Kalamb Beach during high tides when the water is only 100 to 150 meters away from the shore. The low currents tend to pull you in. The water appears black because of the sand color, but it is actually clean and free of floating litter, unlike the major beaches in Mumbai. The sand on this flat beach is hard and slightly wet from the previous night’s tides. This makes it a great place to ride your bike or car on the sand, which is a lot of fun. Just be careful near the entry area where the sand may stick to your vehicle.

If you are a couple discovering this beach for the first time, remember to enjoy your time here until sunset. After sunset, the area becomes dark with few or no street lights. The locals like to gather at the beach after dark for drinks, which might make you feel uncomfortable. It’s best to leave before it gets dark and make the most of the undisturbed daytime. This beach is perfect for nature enthusiasts and those who enjoy collecting seashells and going on camel rides. You’ll find a few options for these activities here.

This beach offers several resorts and cottages for a day picnic or overnight stay. Similarly, Kalamb is a perfect beach for an overnight picnic and camping as well.

The beachfront is shaded and lacks shops or vendors, resulting in less commercial activity and a closer connection to nature. Visitors should bring their belongings and essential drinking water to these beaches.

In Nirmal village, you can find packaged drinking water bottles near the station and market area. However, it can be difficult to find Aqua or Bisleri water brands as there are many local water bottle brands that are not recommended.
