’Arnala Beach’ is located at 10 kms from ‘Virar Station’ on the outskirts of Northern Mumbai. Buses and Auto-rickshaws are available from the station, this 10 kms of journey through villages is also admirable because it is all about greenery on the each sides of the road. The village, banana and coconut trees, paddy fields and water flooded farms are very common on this route which make the surrounding lush green. Bikers can enjoy more as they can adjust their pace and halt as per the view. It takes around 30 minutes to reach Arnala from the station.
Arnala is a peaceful and crowd less beach which adds extra soothing environment on the shore. The entire shore is under the shadow of Coconut trees which gives it an island look. The best time to visit Arnala is monsoon because weather becomes cool and the combination of waves, thunder, clouds and heavy winds make the entire shore very thrilling and romantic. In this kind of weather travelers face towards the sea and enjoy the cool breeze hitting their faces, when hairs flow back then it feels more glamorous.

The first and the magnificent view of the sea, WOW is the first word which you will utter by seeing it. Monsoon winds and clouds chemistry creates magical moments in the environment.
Horse riding fun is also available at the beach. Just imagine the moments of horse riding on the shore hitting the waves and cool blowing winds hitting your body. Isn’t it romantic?

If you are hungry then try Pav Bhaji near Arnala beach, I found it superb.
Arnala exploration can be done in just 2-3 hours but I recommend you to enjoy full day with your friends and family. It is a nice picnic spot.
