Tarkarli is a village in Malvan taluka in Sindhudurg district in the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is tourist destination and a coral beach. This village is famous for its Ramnavmi Utsav. Ramnavmi is celebrated every year in Mahapurush Temple of the village.
Tarkarli beach has a long coastline and clear waters. Located at the confluence of the Karli River and the Arabian Sea, this place has gained prominence because of its long and narrow stretch of beach with pristine waters. On a clear day, one can see the bed unto a depth of 20 ft (6.1 m). It presents a panoramic view with tall Shuru trees in the background. The wide river, the sailboats, and the tiny hamlets situated on the riverbank add to the attraction of Tarkarli. Sighting dolphins is not a rare event here.
Snorkeling (to see corals and fishes), scuba diving, boating, white water rafting, and water rides are held at Tarkali. Boats can be hired for dolphin seeing, golden rocks, tsunami island (for water sports) and snorkeling. Beaches can be dangerous as currents are strong on shore and locals recommend not to wander in more than waist high. Boat owners will stop the boat in deep water to allow a swim where the currents are less strong.
