Alibaug – A land of history, culture and architectural jewels
Salty ocean breeze. Cosy holiday homes. Delicious seafood. Architectural jewels. Peaceful vibe. A town of history. What's not to love about Alibaug? If an escape from dreary city living is not reason enough, Isprava is now bringing its signature luxury homes for sale to this dreamy coastal town. Read on to know what we love most about Alibaug.
Luxury, Spelled Out
City life can tire you out. Alibaug, only a 20 minutes speedboat ride away offers clean air, quiet waters and a life that’s more sedate. We all need a bit of that at some point. With its infectious charm, sprawling beaches, happier locals and cosy vibe, Alibaug promises all of that, and then some.
This magical coastal town is simply spilling over with hidden architectural marvels, if you know where to look! Those with a discerning eye for the luxe life will fall in love with magnificent structures the likes of Nari Gandhi’s swish, red-brick house in Korlai. You will also fall in love with designer Kavita Singh’s Alibaug home, complete with a quiet lily pond and a dining-area placed smack in the middle of a lush garden.
Enchanting beaches and majestic forts aside, Alibaug can often surprise you with some unique offerings. D Samson’s Soda Shop is one such place. Established way back in 1938, here’s where you can stop by to choose from their array of refreshing fizzy soda drinks. We recommend indulging in a delicious ice-cream soda. Lunch on the other hand, deserves to be a large thali filled with Konkani-style preparations from Hotel Sanman, Israil Lane.
Picnics by the Beach
There’s something truly enchanting about a picnic. Even more so when it’s done by the beach. Kihim Beach, which lies 11 kms from Alibaug, is a great choice. Its long stretch of white sand interspersed with eclectic farmhouses and lush foliage is a great spot for an intimate sit-down meal as you watch the waves roll by. Akshi beach is also an option, lined as it is with gorgeous Casuarina trees. We suggest carrying fruits, dainty sandwiches, cold salads and flaky muffins for a sweet, finishing touch.
Where the Jet-Set Unwinds
Alibaug’s bountiful beauty draws to it the city’s most celebrated stars. Gauri Khan, for one, is smitten with her tropical country home in Alibaug. She finds it to be a great place for inspiration, which it is! Anaita Shroff Adajania, stylist to the stars, also has a beautifully breezy holiday home tucked into the quiet lanes of this coastal town. Writer Shobhaa De and her husband can also be found in their Alibaug home, enjoying the peace and quiet.
The Best Neighbourhoods Around
In the mood for some adventure? Explore Alibaug’s neighbouring beauties, filled with plenty to absorb. Sasawane, one of the finest addresses around, is just 10 minutes from the jetty. While Kihim Beach promises white sands, Kashid is where some of the most lavish beachfront estates are found. So take your pick!
It Reminds us of...
This beautiful town takes us back to the blissful environs of Goa. The vibe though, definitely reflects that of The Hamptons—just a sleepier, quainter and more rustic version of it. And we absolutely love every bit of it! And we cannot to build private luxury villas in Alibaug.
What we love most about it...
How it’s like a tiny slice of home. It’s not too far away from the city either, making impromptu trips an absolute breeze. Also, it has the friendliest locals!
