Surrounded by water in three directions, India is perfect not only for a lazy, chill sojourn but also a more adventurous 'go explore' outing. Indian beaches can offer everything from action to solitude.

The calm beaches of Karnataka await with a comfortable stay from January to March. Visit the tranquil Gokarna in Karnataka with its secluded beaches and famous Mahabaleshwar Temple. It's a perfect place for sunbathing or just chilling in a hammock with a book.

Wanna party from dusk till dawn? Check out Calangute beach which is the largest in the northern region of Goa. Visit the 'queen of the beaches' from November to March for a truly fantastic experience!

Tiny Ganpatipule in Maharashtra with its magnificent beaches of red sand and shallow water can seduce even the fussiest human in the world. Above all—the right time for a visit is usually from October to March.

Another stunning holiday destination, Kovalam, was initially a fishing village in Kerala. Once famous for its coastline lighthouses, it now it includes a variety of activities including different kinds of sports. Namely, Kovalam is known as the best beach for surfing in India

If you are expecting an enormous paradise retreat, try Marari Beach in Kerala. The town is surrounded by total beauty on all sides. Although interest is growing, Marari isn't a tourist beach for now, rather a peaceful place to unwind and relax.

And as the Bay of Bengal is the largest bay in the world, welcome to its longest off-beat Mandarmani beach, situated in East Midnapore.
