Every year, around the end of winter the magnificent breed of Olive Ridley turtles visit and hatch eggs in the serene beaches of the small village called Velas in the Konkan region. Velas is also the birthplace of Nana Phadnis, one of the prominent personalities in Maratha history.

Harihareshwar temple
Built in the 16th century, it has deities of Vishnu, Brahma and Shiva. Harihareshwar region is amazingly beautiful with hills playing the perfect foil for a long stretch of pristine beach.

Bankot Fort
Bankot is a square shaped fort. On the sides of Bankot fort, there is a dry moat (Revni) dug out in the Jambhya stone, adorning a purple shade and the water invariably percolates through it.
