Shining Sagar is located less than a minutes walk away from the pristine Karde beach. Karde is one of the most secluded and tranquil beaches in the entire stretch of Dapoli beaches.
Karde is flanked by Murud Harnai to its north and Ladghar beach to its south. Karde beach continues onto the Murud Harnai beach without any hindrances making Karde beach a huge expansive sandy stretch.
Dolphin watch boat rides, water sports and parasailing on the beach are the most popular activities one can indulge in at the Karde beach.
Apart from the beaches and water sports there is lots more to see and experience near Karde.
The Durga Mandir in Murud is quite famous and can be visited on the way to the Harnai beach. The Suvarnadurg sea fort lies at a small distance off the coast near Murud and this sea fort is worth a visit. Harnai fish auctions in the evening is also worth visiting along with a trip to Suvarnadurg.
About 15 Kms from Shining Sagar is Anjarle famous for the Kadyavarcha Ganpati Temple. A temple atop a cliff, the idol of Ganpati here is very unique with its trunk curving to its right unlike most of the Ganpati idols.
