5 Weekend Getaways from SURAT
This holiday season when your wife is complaining about not taking a leave and you are overburden with work, children getting pissed off sitting at home all the time, why not to balance the life without taking a leave? We decided to compile these picnic spots near Surat which might just fit the bill to the T and get the zing back in a jiffy while being around Surat.
1) Daman etle Surat nu Goa:
Hahaha.. Well, Suratis are Khava PIVA ma mojila. Take a drive to Daman for approx 2 hours and there you are in Goa of Surat. (Well, I know it was too bad punch) Daman was an erstwhile Portuguese colony and a popular local getaway. Jhampore Beach across the river at Moti Daman is more idyllic with casuarinas trees lines right next to the beach.
2) Saputara ni greenery:
Saputara is a distinctly different place amongst the arid nature of Gujarat. Nestled in the Dang forest area of the Sahyadri Range, Saputara is a picturesque hill station that brings a much welcome diversity with the lush greenery. Its cool climate provides an ideal escape from the sun-scorched plains of Surat. Saputara has many water bodies like brooks, streams and lakes in the region. Though Saputara has experienced a lot of development as a tourism center with all the required amenities like hotels, parks, swimming pools, boat club, theaters, rope ways and a museum, still it has managed to retain the unspoilt beauty of nature.
3) Tithal na dariye majja:
This one is nearby Valsad and takes around 2 hours to reach. This beach is quite famous among South Gujarat. People come to spend their leisure hours here. It is a family friendly beach and is considered to be the finest weekend getaways from Surat. Here Sai baba temple and Swami Narayan temples are also attraction for tourists.
4) Poicha na Jai Swaminarayan:
You can say this place is unexplored. Many Suratis don’t know about this one. It is near Rajpipla. And is growing tourist attraction in the whole Gujarat. The Nilkanth Dham is a not just a typical Swaminarayan temple but also offer serene atmosphere to your soul. Do try this one as it is new and amazing. The atmosphere they have created is phenomenal.
5) Dandi na beach par cricket:
You can always dive in when this scorching hot is heating you up all the week. Generally we keep visiting this beach as being nearest to Surat. This weekend go along with your family gang, try out cricket, have family lunch together. And most importantly do not miss the sunset here. I found this beach the cleanest among all.
Yay!! That’s all for now. I am already packing my bags. Bye Bye! Have a happy weekend you all.
