Dive Agar

Diveagar, is a splendid beach about 15 kms from Shrivardhan and Harihareshwar. Diveagar is popular for its secluded beaches however, watch out for the crowd that throngs the suvarna ganesh temple housing a pure gold idol. Diveagar beach is not a flat beach unlike most of the other beaches in this region, be careful while playing in the waves as there are rocks strewn across at some parts of the beach.
