My visit to Aksa Beach

I recently visited Aksa Beach with my family this year. We went there from Goregaon, taking an Uber, and reached around 7 am, and it took only half an hour to get to the beach. The only purpose of an early morning visit was to watch the sunrise, and we were awestruck.

Starting with sandwiches for breakfast, we tried many famous street foods in Mumbai, like Vada Pav, Misal Pav, and Sev Puri.

We spent the whole day there taking pictures and enjoying the sun while sipping coconut water. A few other tourists were partying and posing for pictures. Some were lying down, even sleeping.

We spent the night in the Aksa Hotel near the beach and returned the next day. It was quite a refreshing day.
