Description

Beach Holidays in India from Outlook Traveler Getaways, whose first edition appeared in 2008 and the second edition is with you, showcases the varied and remarkable aspects of India's beaches. A beach in India is much more than a strip of sand where surf and merry-making are guaranteed. Almost every beach presents a unique cocktail that mixes such unlikely ingredients as history and culture with the more ubiquitous doses of fun and adventure.

Much like the explorers who landed on India's shores in ancient times, the writers in this book were guided mostly by a sense of adventure and discovery. As you will see in the pages of this book, they approached each beach as a sum of many equally enticing and exciting parts. They capture the beach in its many forms: as an entertainment arena, where locals gather to watch the setting sun: as a source of nostalgia, where one is swept away by memories of childhood picnics or the flavors of mirchi bhaji and bhelpuri from another time; or as a symbol of the past, as glimpsed in the ruins of forts and ports that line our coast, brimming with tales of intrepid voyagers who sometimes blundered their way onto our shores.

At the same time, the book gives you all the information you need for a beach holiday. We tell you which hotels have the best views, whether the sea is safe for swimming, what water sports are on offer, and which beach shacks sell hummus and chilli chicken and everything in between. But we also remind you to pause to see the sea for what it’s for many: a source of livelihood. a fact that the number of photos of fishing boats in this book testifies to.
