Olive Ridleys are the smallest of the sea turtles and they got their name because of their olive coloured shells.

People belonging to the shores where these turtles hatch their eggs, call the phenomenon as “Arribada”. Velas is also known for the birth place of Nana Phadnavis, a great Indian diplomat. Bankot Sea Fort : Bankot stands at the mouth of Bankot creek, where Savitri river (originating from Mahabaleshwar) meets the Arabian Sea.
