Dapoli – MSH4 Dapoli Harnai road - Turn left at the sign board for Durga Devi temple - Karde Phata - continue straight - Murud (12 Km)
Don't confuse this Murud-Harnai with Murud-Janjira in Alibag. Though the name is same, they are located at least 100 Kms apart. Located 12 Km from Dapoli Murud is a long, treelined stretch of a beach with Suvarnadurg fort looming in the horizon on your right and the oft sand beach extending to yet another beautiful beach of Karde on your left.
Murud is an ideal destination for a long holiday with numerous beach resorts and hotels by the beach and almost centrally located to all the interesting spots in Dapoli. The Harnai fishing harbour is just four kilometres away and is a must visit during the fish auction. It truely is a awe inspiring experience.
The ancient Durga devi temple on the main road is also worth a visit for the intricate wooden carvings on the pillars. You could also visit the Maharshi Keshav Dhondo Karve memmorial photo gallery maintained by the descendands of the priest who solemnized the first widow marriage in India. You can see some of the old and rare photographs here.
