Step into the enchanting world of my birthday celebration as I share the cherished moments of my trip to Alibaug’s captivating Kihim Beach.
From mouthwatering culinary delights and beachside adventures to a spiritual ascent at Kankeshwar Temple, let me whisk you away on a captivating and enjoyable reading experience.
A Taste Sensation for the Senses
The clock struck midnight, and my birthday festivities began with a delightful surprise: a luscious “Chocolate Overload Birthday Cake,” complemented by heavenly Paneer Malai starters and tempting Margherita pizza.
The next day, our journey from Pune to Alibaug commenced. We drove in our red car.
At the Lonavla food court, we savoured the tangy Pav Bhaji and relished the flavoursome Chola Bhatura, energizing ourselves for the adventures ahead.
Casa De Kihim – A Beachside Heaven
Arriving at Casa De Kihim, our chosen abode, we were welcomed with open arms, rejuvenating ourselves with onion pakodas and a cup of tea before heading straight to the beach.
Just a leisurely 5-minute stroll from our cottage, Kihim Beach greeted us with its pristine beauty, enchanting us with a spectacular sunset.
We couldn’t resist the allure of booking a thrilling jet skiing session, immersing ourselves in the joy of the waves and soaking up the refreshing atmosphere.
A sip of cool coconut water added the perfect touch of rejuvenation.
A Culinary Delight and a Tranquil Evening
As nightfall approached, we made our way back to the cottage, where a simple yet flavoursome dinner awaited us. Fry dal and rice, accompanied by crispy papad, provided nourishment and satisfied our taste buds with their comforting simplicity.
The serene ambience of Casa De Kihim wrapped us in tranquillity, offering a peaceful retreat to unwind and reflect on the day’s adventures.
Scaling the Spiritual Heights of Kankeshwar Temple
After a restful night’s sleep and a hearty breakfast, we embarked on a pilgrimage to Kankeshwar Temple, a divine destination just a short 20-minute drive from our cottage.
Kankeshwar Temple is located on top o a hill. We had to climb 750 steps to reach the temple.
We embraced the challenges of the ascent, pausing at stalls along the way, where tantalizing offerings of kokum sharbat, refreshing lemon juice, juicy cucumbers, and sweet mangoes invigorated our spirits.
Reaching the hilltop temple, we paid our respects, immersing ourselves in the serenity and spirituality of the surroundings, marvelling at the breathtaking views that unfolded before us.
My birthday escapade to Kihim Beach and the spiritual heights of Kankeshwar Temple was a truly captivating and enjoyable experience.
From the mouthwatering culinary delights to the thrilling beachside adventures and the moments of tranquillity and introspection, Alibaug offered the perfect backdrop for a memorable celebration.

beauty, flavours, and spiritual awakening
