Beach is very clean and safe, staff is also co-operatve
"It was a wonderful experience visiting Alibaug for beach camping. The one minus star is for sanitization as the bathrooms were less in numbers as compared to crowd that visit on weekends. When you will alight at Mandwa ask auto for group booking towards campsite. Per person should cost you around Rs.50. Otherwise the vibes were awesome due to being very far from daily hustle- bustle of city life. "
