In spite of Murud gaining the centre of attraction, it does shake a bit in importance, when one talks of Chaul or Alibaug. Both the mentioned places are steeped in heritage and wield such historical importance and legends, that excavations still baffle historians. Ancient in its initiation, the places can easily be accessed by popular means of transport.
Chaul (44 km)
Inhabited since early historic times, Chaul has been under domination of umpteen dynasties, yet standing dignified with all the intact structures that were built by ruler, in admiration of the picturesque place.
Alibaug (54 km)
Though Alibaug was mentioned with negligence, the one man's sincere endeavour has assigned the place in a tourist map forever. People owe much to Kanhoji Angre, the untiring man behind all these valiant feats. Alibaug today has changed much, owing to tourist pressure, yet retaining the old world charm through various spheres of life.
