Kelva Beach and Fort :
Kelva Beach is credited with seven kilometers of coastline, the largest in the region. The beach houses a few thousand suru trees.
t the southern end of the beach is the Janjira or the Kelva fort. The walk to the watchtower is quiet a long haul, so be prepared to expend a fair bit of energy. The fort is inaccessible during the high tide. But local boats are available until sunset for hoisting the vikings to the top with the help of a pulley.

Kelva Dam :
10 kilometers away is the Kelva Dam, the route to which makes up an excellent cycling trip.
