There is something special about Bordi beach and that is its simplicity. The beach is situated in the backdrop of tree orchards specially that of a fruit called CHIKOO. Calm but well connected, unspoiled and refreshing, you have your privacy but you need not worry about the connectivity from the city or any other kind of amenities.


Another best thing of this beach is that there is no artificial make-up unlike other famous beaches, it comes under the custody of ''Woods preservation dept. of Maharashtra'' hence it's natural face is untouched. But here you won’t find white sand, the sands here are bit sticky and blackish, but then it is natural. Another best thing about the beach is that you can go inside the sea up to several kilometers and the water would be just waist high; as the slope is gradual hence it is one of the safest beach.


The best way to observe and inhale its beauty is to travel from Dahanu (A small town 130 KMs from Mumbai) to Bordi (15 Km from Dahanu) by the state-highway road alongside the stretch of the sea. You will find the sea adjacent to the road and the orchards & Chikoo trees alongside make the entire stretch a soothing inhalation of life.


Bordi is on the boarder of Gujarat & Maharashtra, and just 10 KMs from here Gujarat states start with a town - Umargaon.


A few facts


Rail Travel (from Boriwali) - 1.45Hrs.


Nearest Rly. Station - Gholwad


If you start from Virar (the last suburb of Mumbai)- you can take trains going to Gujarat line, there are many local / shuttles from Virar to Vapi which stops at Gholwad. Bordi is 4 KM from Gholwad Stn.


But I suggest that one should get down at Dahanu, as all major trains including express/mails heading towards Gujarat/Delhi etc stop here. From Dahanu one can take taxi / Auto / and there is regular service of state-transport buses.


By Road


Road Travel (from Thane) - 145 KM - 3 Hrs.


You can take western express highway from Mumbai (heading to Gujarat - Ahmedabad) - via Thane - Bhiwandi - Jawhar - Manor - and further. Take a state highway road from Manor heading towards Dahanu and it will take you directly to Bordi (around 40 KM). By road you can enjoy the picturesque orchards, trees and Chikoo gardens and from Dahanu to Bordi this quiet road becomes much beautiful alongside the sea.


Roads does not have much traffic, only a few ST buses & autos and some private vehicle may be found plying on the road.


Accommodations :-


You can go for the same day trip to Bordi (for that start early in the morning), but if you feel that traveling 145 + 145 Km is a bit tiring for a day then you can make it a weekend trip.


you will find ample resorts there but a few reputed ones are mentioned below


MTDC Resort.


Tapovan Retreat


Hill-Zhill Hotel & Restaurant.


Bordi is a small village-town where you can find all necessary items, and at Dahanu you can find everything which is available in Mumbai.


Mobile Coverage - Airtel, BSNL & RIM.


STD Code - 02528


Phone no. of MTDC - 02528-254243
