Situated near Andheri region in Mumbai, Maharashtra, Versova Beach offers stunning vistas of colossal Arabian Sea at sunset and sunrise. It is located in the district of Greater Mumbai and is renowned for its lashing waves. The near-secluded coastline of this beach is actually the continuation of the iconic beach of Mumbai, the Juhu Beach and lies on the north of Juhu Beach. A small creek separates this beach from Juhu beach and the namesake village located on the shore this beach is renowned for being the home of traditional Konkan people – the Kolis.  Kolis are a large fishing community living in Mumbai. This beach is a tranquil place to spend evening and mornings and one can spend hours watching fishermen doing their regular chores like preparing their nets, boats and heading out to capture the fresh catch of the day. The deep treacherous hole and whirlpools are an inseparable part of this beach, thus it is not suitable for water sports or swimming.
