Specialty of Rajodi Beach

Updates 2024: Due to Water Sports activities and many beach side food joints, This beach keep attracting more and more tourist and residents around.

Updates 2023: TThis beach is now more popular than it was in the past few years because there are more accommodations available along the beachfront. The ‘Mumbai Surf Club’, a new water sports company, has also introduced water rides and sports activities on this beach.

Updates 2020: In 2019, water sports activities attracted many people who came in groups to enjoy the adventures. Additionally, in February 2019, locals and citizens of Mumbai were delighted to witness a group of Dolphin fish near the beach.

Blu Life Adventures employees recently sighted a group of Dolphins, approximately 8 to 12 in number, at a distance from the beach area. HP Live news has shared a video covering this exciting news. This serves as proof that Dolphins are present in the sea water of Vasai Virar, which is much cleaner compared to other areas in the city.

Out of the four beaches in the area, they are named after the respective villages and are arranged in a queue. Rajodi, being the second beach in line, is known for its cleanliness and slightly secluded location. It has a flat surface, is safer, free from pollution, and has white sand. However, it has fewer tree shades compared to Arnala beach.

The beach features a man-made rocky belt at the entrance, providing an ideal spot to sit and enjoy the sea view. While it is a great beach for walking or spending time with family, friends, or your loved ones, I wouldn’t suggest it for picnics due to the limited number of resorts available, and their average food quality.

If you’re thinking of having a beachside picnic with a medium to large group, you might want to consider Arnala beach or Navapur. Alternatively, you can go to Uttan beach at Bhayandar. Arnala beach is well-known but not very clean, whereas Bhayander coastal beaches are much cleaner and offer high-quality seafood.

Rajodi is a great place to have fun during the day, with no incidents reported involving picnic groups or tourists. However, it is recommended to leave the beach before sunset as the entrance gives a sense of isolation, similar to other nearby beaches.
