“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” ―
My husband and I completed a decade of togetherness last week. Since we were buried under our professional and personal lives we forgot to plan for the weekend getaway. In fact, we also forgot that we were touching a milestone and should make it memorable. Only on insistence from my mother in law did we start thinking of how to make our day memorable.
Now since we had not planned anything, so here we went on another unplanned trip. We wanted to go to Goa (as this is where we started our journey together). But Goa was booked and we randomly looked for other options. Both of us liked the resort so much that without thinking further we made our reservations. Only after booking at Exotica The Sea View, did we realise that the place we are going to is Diveagar.
After a 5 hour drive from Pune, we reached our destination – Diveagar. The road leading to this hidden jewel is not too good. On reaching the resort we were very tired after the hectic drive. First, we were happy to see the resort and after lunch when we went to the beach which was 2 km away from the resort all our tiredness vanished.
Diveagar – a Konkan beach, in all sense is a jewel which is calm, serene, quiet and a virgin beach. The beach faces the Arabian Sea and is approximately 4-5 km long. The north end of the beach is home to a fishing settlement with paddy farms. The southern end has a bird sanctuary and often migratory seabirds can be spotted. To get to the beach one has to cross the dense cover of trees. This thick vegetation hides the beach.
Once you get to the beach you are engulfed in the tranquillity, calmness and serenity of the whole place. I was very impressed with the fact that they have bathrooms and changing rooms. There are a lot of snack vendors all offering the local snacks along with chai, coffee. One can also find Maggie at these stalls. The beach also has many activities like horse riding, camel riding, horse cart and then there are water sports also.
The mornings are really beautiful here with the sunrays finding their way through the dense green cover. We spent some awesome hours here waiting for the sun to show up. As soon as the sun was out the water activities also started. The sunset is equally beautiful. It is a bliss to see the sun go down in the waters.
So did we enjoy our unplanned trip? Did we get what we were expecting from it? Oh yes! and a big yes! I have come to the terms that whenever we make unplanned trips we are never disappointed instead they leave us asking for more. Same was the case with Diveagar, it also left us asking for more. The sunkissed sand, the calm beach, the beautiful green cover and the fact that it is sparsely populated and clean will definitely win your heart and make you long for more.
