Marve beach is known primarily for its cashew nut groves and a medieval Portuguese church, besides the magnificent view of the sun itself. Churches from the Portuguese era and the attires of Mumbai’s Catholic natives bear an uncanny resemblance to Goa. Just a ferry ride away from the beaches of Gorai and Manori, Marve beach is best visited between October and March.
Furthermore, a special ferry transports people from the beach to Essel World and to the Global Vipassana Pagoda which is aglow in the night and is a must-see. The closest railway station is at Malad, from which BEST buses ply directly to one of the best beaches in Mumbai.
