Ganpatipule is a sleepy hamlet in the Ratnagiri district of southwest Maharashtra in India, around 375 km off Mumbai by road. Untouched by commercialism, the pastoral beauty of the village is enhanced manifold by the six kilometers of virgin beach on the breathtaking Konkan coastline. The locals believe that Ganpatipule is blessed. They say that in an age when men were devout and miracles were the norm, the scriptures talked of four  Dwardatas (welcoming deities) to the sub-continent, and they marked Ganpatipule as the western deity.
 

Legend has it that during 16th century AD, a villager seeking refuge from the skirmishes around his tiny village, arduously made his way through the kerda jungles and stumbled upon Lord Ganapati's idol here, around which he made a temple. For four hundred years thereafter, generation upon generation of villagers, who came from elsewhere and started living there, cared for and added to the shrine and made it into the temple one sees today.

The God is considered to be the Paschim Dwardevata (Western Sentinel God of India) and those who visit Ganpatipule, make it a point to pay their respects to this great deity.

Aside from its clean beach and clear waters, Ganpatipule is rich in flora, including mangroves and coconut palms.  Here, you can leave the hectic world behind as you laze around on golden sands or explore the many trails that lead from the beach.
