Morning tour (optional) of the Konkan coastline – and a visit to Murud for its Janjira (means a fort in the ocean. Historically, Shivaji and the Maratthas under the capable Naval Commander KanojiAngre built a chain of such forts along the western India coastline, complete with perennial water supply, to successfully counter the Mughals initially and then the British forces). The Janjira at Murud is one of the best preserved.
New Year’s Dinner and Dance – to usher in 2015 “to chase the hours with flying feet”. There is a potential for a “sighting” of film stars at these places, since they seem to flee the big city on New Year’s Day themselves to a reclusive place like Alibaug - you just never know what you may chance upon.
