Velneshwar has one of the most secluded and pristine beaches in the entire Konkan stretch and with popular destinations like Guhagar and Ganpatipule flanking it on either sides Velneshwar is soon going to capture the imagination of beach lovers in Maharashtra.
The Shiva temple is the other major attraction of Velneshwar. Shrines dedicated to Lord Vishnu, Ganesha and Kala Bhairav are also present here.
Hedvi beach is approximately 5 kms from Velneshwar. Hedvi has a small stretch of rocky black sand beach. A temple dedicated to Uma Maheshwari is also located near the beach on the way to Bahman ghal from the main beach.
Perched atop a small hillock about a kilometer from the Hedvi beach is the Hedvi Dasha bhuja Ganesh temple. A popular Lakshmi Ganesh temple, this Ganesh temple depicts the diety with 10 hands which is quite rare.
Bahmanghal - continous gradation of the rocks by the sea has created a gorge in the black rock patch about 20 feet deep and 1-2 feet wide. The sea water gushes in and a water column rises through this gorge above the rocks upto 20ft!
Velneshwar is flanked by Guhagar to its north and Ganpatipule to its south across the Jaigad creek. Ganpatipule is famous for the swayambhu Ganpati temple and makes a great 1 day trip from Velneshwar Beach Resort.
