One of India's most populated states is blessed with natural diversity, cultural heritage, and India's most bustling, fast-paced metropolis, which means there's plenty to explore. A road-trip through Maharashtra will allow you to smell the sea-breeze, gorge on delicious sea food and indulge in adrenaline-pumping watersports. Maharasthra's coastal route crosses the pristine beaches of Alibaug and Murud, the famous offshore Murud-Janjira Fort, mango orchards where the famous Ratnagiri Alphonsoes come from and the brilliant driving roads of Ganpatipule. And the best part: drive a little further south, and ta-daa! You are in Goa!
