Rajodi is one of the four connected beaches located in the Mumbai Suburbs of Vasai-Virar. The beach derives its name from the village and is located on the Satpale-Rajodi road.
Unlike the neighboring Arnala beach which is a famous tourist hot-spot buzzing with numerous resorts and eateries, Rajodi beach offers peaceful vibes.
Being second in line, this unexplored beach is less crowded & mostly frequented by locals from nearby villages and towns. The beach is flat-surfaced and much cleaner than its counter-parts. Black sand adorns the beach surface with sufficient trees to sit under and relax.
The road to the beach welcomes you with its many coconut trees and bushes decorated on either side. Take a walk along the shore and may be see several pretty washed out broken sea shells. You will find a man-made rock formation built for people to sit and enjoy the calming ocean waves. One can settle on these rocks and watch the beautiful views of the sun setting.
A major reason for the beach being sparsely populated is that it does not offer as many facilities in terms of stay or food. Although you will find a few stalls providing tea, soft drinks and snacks. It is therefore recommended to carry enough food with you if you are planning to spend the entire day at the beach. If you want to enjoy a laidback beachside picnic without the extravaganza, Rajodi Beach is an ideal destination for you. Pack a picnic, pull out your mat and lay down soaking up the atmosphere for several uninterrupted hours.
Best Time to Visit:
The beach can be visited all year round. But the best time to visit would be from June to February when the air is cooler and the weather is pleasant.
Modes of transport :
If travelling by road, take the National Highway route, get inside Virar and ride further in to reach Bolinj Agashi Road. The beach has a parking spot for private vehicles too. For best results, Use the map or ask for help.
The best way to reach there is by train. Take a train on the Western Railway Line and get down at Virar station. You will find rickshaws & buses to drop you directly at the beach.
